Product Overview

The Keysight M8040A 64 GBaud pattern generator is a highly integrated BERT for physical layer characterization and compliance testing. The M8040A BERT's true error analysis provides repeatable and precise results, improving the performance margins of your devices. Designed for R&D and test engineers the M8040A characterizes chips, devices, transceiver modules and sub-components, boards and systems with serial I/O ports operating with symbol rates up to 32 GBaud and 64 GBaud in the data center and communications industries.

With support for a wide range of data rates and standards, the Keysight M8040A provides accurate, reliable results that accelerate your insight into the performance margins of high-speed digital devices. With the M8040A, all critical test capabilities for input/receiver (RX) characterization are built-in.

The pattern generator module provides calibrated and integrated jitter sources and de-emphasis to emulate the transmitter (TX) and to compensate for channel loss in the test setup. In addition, the M8040A provides an internal clock synthesizer and a second pattern generator output channel to emulate an aggressor lane.

Keysight M8040A - Features and Specifications:

  • Data rates from 2 to 32 and 64 GBaud
  • Integrated and calibrated jitter injection: RJ, PJ1, PJ2, SJ, BUJ, and clk/2 jitter
  • Forward Error Correction (FEC) encoding and error insertion for testing DUTs with FEC decoder
  • Built-in 5 tap de-emphasis to compensate loss
  • Short connections to the DUT with remote heads for the pattern generator
  • True PAM4 error detection in real-time for low BER levels
  • PAM4 and NRZ selectable from user interface
  • Clock recovery with N1076A and N1077A
  • RI and SI level interference injection via M8195A/96A AWG
  • Graphical user interface and remote control via M8000 system software
  • Scalable and upgradeable with options and module
