Sumitomo Electric To Demonstrate Industry's First 25G EDR Technology Using Anritsu MP1800A BERT During OFC/NFOEC

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Anritsu Company (booth #2519) will be part of a demonstration of the world's first 25G EDR technology that will be conducted in the Sumitomo Electric Industries (SEI) booth (#2318) during OFC/NFOEC 2013, beginning today in Anaheim, CA. The Anritsu MP1800A BERT will be used in the SEI booth to showcase key component technology used in an EDR active optical cable.


"Sumitomo Electric's EDR technology combined with Anritsu's MP1800 will demonstrate the world's first 25G EDR technology," said Manabu Yoshimura, General Manager of Technology and Marketing Strategy Department at Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations (SEDI). "Sumitomo Electric is committed to developing the products necessary to meet the requirements of reducing the weight, density, and power consumption over traditional copper alternatives." 

The MP1800A was selected, in part, because it supports wideband bit rates from 0.1G to 32.1G for versatile signal integrity analysis applications. It features a built-in Pulse Pattern Generator (PPG) to support output of high-quality, high-amplitude signals, and an Error Detector (ED) with high input sensitivity for signal analysis, such as Bathtub Jitter and Eye Diagram Measurements. A jitter modulation source is also integrated into the MP1800A, for generating various jitters, such as SJ/RJ/BUJ/SSC, and supporting Jitter Tolerance tests.

"Anritsu has designed innovative test solutions with the performance required by companies such as SEI who develop leading-edge technologies that will expand the capabilities of optical communications. We are pleased to be working with SEI at OFC/NFOEC once again this year to highlight key advances that will spark our industry," said Peter Alexander, PhD, Assistant General Manager, Americas Sales Region.
