Anritsu: 116-Gbit/s PAM4 error detector with high PAM4 Rx sensitivity
Anritsu will demonstrate the new PAM4 Error Detector module for its Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A Series PAM4 BERT at the ECOC Exhibition 2019. With the world’s highest operation bit rate and Rx sensitivity, the new ED module for Anritsu’s Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A Series PAM4 BERT supports high-accuracy Bit and Symbol Error Ratio measurement of PAM4 signals when combined with the previously released PAM4 Pattern Signal Generator.
Communications data traffic volumes are expected to grow with the spread of next generation 5G mobile communications and Cloud computing services. As a result, data centers supporting fast, large-capacity communications are examining speed increases to 400GbE using four 53.125-Gbaud PAM4 lanes as well as future upgrades to 800GbE using eight PAM4 lanes.
