Tektronix BSA286CL

28.6 Gb/s BERTScope

Product Overview

The Tektronix BSA286CL BERTScope Bit Error Rate Tester Series provides a new approach to signal integrity measurements of serial data systems. The BSA286CL allows users to perform bit error rate detection more quickly, accurately, and thoroughly by bridging eye diagram analysis with BER pattern generation. The Tektronix BSA286CL BERTScope Bit Error Rate Tester Series enable you to easily isolate problematic bit and pattern sequences, then analyze further with advanced error analysis that deliver unprecedented statistical measurement depth.

The Key Features of the Tektronix BSA286CL include:

  • Frequency range: 1-28.6 GHz
  • Data rate range: 1 to 28.6 Gb/s
  • Phase noise: < ?90 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset (typical)
  • Clock output divide ratios: Opt. STR only
  • Format: NRZ
  • Polarity: Normal or inverted
  • Variable cross over: 25 to 75%


  • Hardware patterns: Industry-standard Pseudo-random (PRBS) of the following types: 2n ? 1 where n = 7, 11, 15, 20, 23, 31
  • RAM patterns: 128 bits to 128 Mb total, allocated in 32 Mb portions to each of two A/B pages. Single page max is 128 Mb
  • Library: Wide variety including SONET/SDH, Fiber Channel based such as k28.5, CJTPAT; 2n patterns where n = 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9; Mark Density patterns for 2n where n = 7, 9, 23; and many more

Error insertion

  • Length: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 bit bursts
  • Frequency: Single or repetitive
