Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) offers PXIT modules for optical transceiver manufacturing. The modules have a combined bit error ratio tester (BERT) and digital communication analyzer (DCA). The flexible modular platform allows optical transceiver manufacturers to combine key instruments needed to perform required measurements in one mainframe via the same interface. The PXIT modules come in four versions: the N2100B PXIT 8.5 Gb/s digital communications analyzer, the N2101B PXIT 10.7 Gb/s bit error ratio tester, the N2102B PXIT 11.1 Gb/s pattern generator, and the N2099A PXIT synthesizer.
