    Anatomy of an Eye Diagram
    This application note discusses different ways that information from an eye diagram can be sliced to gain more insight. It also discusses some basic ways that transmitters, channels, and receivers are tested. Download the PDF to read more:
    Application Note
    Comparing Jitter Using a BERTScope® Bit Error Rate Testing
    Comparison of DCD and F/2 Jitter.
    Application Note
    Evaluating Stress Components using BER-Based Jitter Measurements
    This primers describes how jitter measurements can be self-verified using a BER-based Jitter Peak measurement and how to simplify the jitter measurement challenge by using a pattern that does not contribute pattern-dependent effects, and finally …
    Primer
    Characterizing an SFP+ Transceiver at the 16G Fibre Channel Rate
    Study the measurements needed to test an SFP+ transceiver to the 16G Fibre Channel standard, covering both Multi- Mode 850 nm and Single Mode 1310 nm interfaces. Included is a test and characterization example using a Single Mode 1310 nm laser SFP+ …
    Primer
    Six Sigma’ Mask Testing with a BERTScope® Bit Error Rate Tester
    Six sigma is a form of mask testing that provides for critical insight when mask testing depth specification are important for pass/fail testing or deeper evaluation on high-speed signaling standards to provide a significantly more complete picture …
    Application Note
    BERTScope® Bit Error Rate Testers Jitter Map “Under the Hood”
    Delve into jitter problems in new ways, such as examining Random Jitter on each edge of the data pattern, separating out the jitter caused by transmitter pre-emphasis, and performing jitter decomposition on long patterns such as PRBS-31.

    BERTScope™ CR125A+ 175A+ & 286A Clock Recovery Fact Sheet
    Key Specs and Ordering Information for BERTScope CR125A, 175A, & 286A Clock Recovery.
    Fact Sheet
    Bridging the Gap Between BER and Eye Diagrams — A BER Contour Tutorial
    BER Contour Measurement - What it is, how it is constructed, and why it is a valuable way of viewing parametric performance at gigabit speeds.
    Application Note
    Stressed Eye Primer
    In addition to an introduction to stressed eye testing, this primer discusses some of the high-speed standards that use it, and how a receiver test using stressed eye is constructed.
    Primer
    Stressed Eye: “Know What You’re Really Testing With”
    BER-based measurements can provide a better view of the stress eye opening down at the deep BER levels that the receiver will be expected to operate at when it is tested.
    Primer
    Stress Calibration for Jitter >1UI
    While measuring the amount of jitter present on a signal is relatively straight forward conceptually; when the levels of jitter are small, amounts above a bit period (1 unit interval or UI) can be more difficult. This has practical consequences for …
    Application Note
    PCI Express® Transmitter PLL Testing — A Comparison of Methods
    There are several methods of measuring PLL loop response, based on the type of test instrumentation used. As expected, the various methods trade off test accuracy, test speed (throughput), ease of use, ease of setup, and initial cost. In addition …
    Primer
    Clock Recovery’s Impact on Test and Measurement
    As clock recovery becomes increasingly common in more systems and test setups, its effects on measurements must be considered. Many outside influences can disturb the relationship between data and how it is clocked. By understanding the relationship …
