Software halves testing costs claims Anritsu
Anritsu has unveiled two software packages that it says cuts the cost of testing active optical cables and direct attach cables in half.
The software is designed for Anritsu's MP2100A BERTWare series of BERT and, when installed, supports jitter decomposition analysis, S21 transmission characteristics and waveform simulation. According to Anritsu, the jitter analysis software can separately measure each type of jitter, such as TJ, DJ, RJ, DDJ and DDPWS, while the transmission analysis software supports analysis of S21 transmission characteristics and waveform simulation.
Installing both software packages in the MP2100A adds high speed, post simulation waveform analysis to the standard BER, Eye Pattern, and Eye Mask measurements of the MP2100A.
BERTWave now supports all digital high speed communications standards, including Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, USB, SAS/SATA, and 10/40/100 GbE.
