Keysight M8196A Arbitrary Waveform Generator

The Keysight M8196A Arbitrary Waveform Generator is ideally suited to address multi-level/multi-channel interfaces, utilizing any standard or custom data format, like high-speed backplane associations utilizing PRBS pattern. This might reach a pattern size up to 1x10-13. There are other pattern methodologies which are accessible, such as PAM-4 or PAM-8 format, and technologies in the mobile application space.

The adaptability of the waveform generation, mixed with fantastic intrinsic jitter execution, guarantees that the M8196A is one of the best options on the market. The impact of cables, board traces, and connectors need to be taken into account to produce the desired signal at the test point of the gadget under test. The M8196A incorporates advanced pre-distortion strategies for frequency (and phase) response compensation of the AWG output and any outside circuit to produce the wanted signal at the gadget under test. Channels could be embedded/de-embedded if the S-parameters of the particular circuits are provided. In conjunction with the 81195A optical modulation generator software, different types of distortions can be added to the signal.

The M8196A is fully integrated into the M8070A BER framework controller software. With a huge channel density, it may be well suited as an affordable generator for multi-lane and high-speed interfaces or as an SI/RI source in conjunction with M8020A/ M8040A. This model offers 4 synchronized channels that allow deterministic emulation and pre-distortion of 2 independent I/Q baseband signals up to 64 GBaud.
