New Product from PocketBERT



Custom-Cal proudly supports sales and rental of the PocketBERT pB10A, a 10 Gb/s hand-held, cost effective BERT, CDR & Frequency Synthysizer.


Our calibration and support role with PocketBERT guaranties fast delivery times, full phone support and quick turn times.

  The pocketBERT pB10A series offers performance features found in benchtop BERT'S in a small sized hand held device (4.2” x 5.7” x 1.3”) and an attractive price at under $4,500 USD.

Here's a few of the features that we like:
      •  Recover 10 Gb/s clock and data signals
      •  Generates a 10 Gb/s serial PRBS or square wave data stream
      •  Run a quick BER test
      •  Re-time a low swing signal from an optical receiver
      •  Determine input swing levels
      •  Assist automated measurements
      •  Generate a continuous programmable high-speed clock (10 - 760 MHz)
      •  Line rate differential clock output (10 Gb/s) as well as a div14 and div64 clock output
      •  Rx offers EDC capabilities for best performance
      •  Tx offers signal de-emphasis capabilities for optimal signal quality
      •  Stand alone system, does not require external reference clock
      •  Can be powered through the USB port

  The pocketBERT pB10A series products support a wide range of high speed data 10 Gb/s rates:

      •  9.95 to 11.32 Gb/s
      •  OC-192 with and without FEC expansion (9.95, 10.66, 10.709 Gb/s)
      •  10 Gigabit Ethernet (64/66, 255/237 or 255/238 encoded; 10.3, 11.05 and 11.049 Gb/s)
      •  10 G Fiber Channel (255/237 or 255/238 encoded; 10.51, 11.27 and 11.32 Gb/s)
