Tektronix CSA8000B

Communications Signal Analyzer Mainframe

Product Overview

Specifically designed for high-performance communications applications, the CSA8000B Communications Signal Analyzer is the ideal tool for design evaluation and manufacturing test of datacom and telecom components, transceiver subassemblies and transmission systems. The CSA8000B generates measurement results, not just raw data, with time and amplitude histograms, mask testing and statistical measurements. It provides a communications-tailored measurement set that includes jitter, noise, duty cycle, overshoot, undershoot, extinction ratio, Q-factor, mean optical power and amplitude measurements for both RZ and NRZ signals. In addition, mask testing of SDH/SONET, Gigabit Ethernet and other standards simplifies conformance testing. Features & Benefits
