This PXI instrument uniquely combines the functionality of several traditional instruments in a single PXI module. The N2100B performs accurate eye diagram analysis to characterize the quality of transmitters from 155 Mb/s to 10.3125 Gb/s. Applications The N2100B is primarily targeted at production automated test applications. The wideband optical input is ideally suited to electro-optical transceivers, short reach parallel optics modules and transmitter optical sub-assemblies (TOSAs). The electrical input is suited to high-speed serial data interconnects and receiver optical sub-assemblies (ROSAs). Typical applications include: • Transceiver Test • Telecomms Equipment Test • Fibre Channel, Ethernet, PON, Parallel Optics, etc* • Multi-port system testing • High port count burn-in test (* Compliance ﬁlters for other rates available on request) New Features Smart Post Processing enables multiple acquisitions to be made but without any processing of the data occurring at the same time. The user can determine the optimal time to perform the processing of the acquired data. Processing the data is slower than acquiring the data so this will allow optical transceiver manufacturers increase throughput by deferring the processing to a time where the DCA would normally not be in-use. The ER Correction Factor enables the user to apply an offset to the measured Extinction Ratio. This feature enables even tighter correlation with other instruments. Measurements Digital Communication Analysis • Mask Margin (with a user friendly mask conﬁguration tool) • Alternate Mask Margin rules available • The mask margin (positive or negative) can be extracted for a deﬁned number of points that fail, thus allowing for DUT quality assessment, control and binning. • The number of failed points for a region can be returned as well as the actual points that failed along with the 3 bit history of that failed point (as a result of vector sampling). • Extinction Ratio / OMA measurements • Eye opening, height, and width • P-P and RMS noise measurements • Duty-cycle distortion • Rise and fall time • Histogram measurements (GUI only) • Deterministic jitter • Random jitter Automatic Mask Test Measurement including a call to determine the margin that x number of points fail the “Mask Margin Test” Multiple measurements can be made at the same time. Note: The color coding in the eye diagram highlights the transition history of the measured point this is derived by using the vector sampling technique. 2 Base Measurement (with Y histogram shown) Specifications OMA Measurement General Sample rate Number of points per acquisition Maximum number of acquisitions Clock recovery Pattern acquisition maximum length Fixed number of points per bit in pattern acquisition mode 160 Ms/s 1024 1024 <2.7 Gb/s 2047 bits 128 Electrical Number of channels BW of electrical input RMS noise* Connection type AC input voltage range Connector type Maximum non-destruct I/P Electrical return loss 1 single ended 12 GHz characteristic 2.5mV RMS (Max) 1.3mV RMS (characteristic) AC Coupled 1 V pp (Max) SMA 2 V pp –12 dB (Return Loss on electrical path when an optical signal is applied) * Measured with no input signal and minimum internal gain setting.
