The first model in the new M8000 Series is the J-BERT M8020A high-performance BERT. It enables fast and accurate receiver characterization of single- and multilane devices operating at data rates up to 16 Gb/s and 32 Gb/s. The M8020A accelerates insight into designs by:
- Streamlining receiver test setup by providing the highest level of integration. It offers built-in jitter injection, 8-tap de-emphasis, interference sources, reference clock multiplication, clock recovery and equalization.
- Ensuring accurate and repeatable measurements by automating in situ calibration of signal conditions.
- Reducing the effort required to bring devices into loopback test mode because the M8020A behaves like a link partner for the device under test and supports interactive link training for PCIe® devices.
