SANTA ROSA, Calif., Sept. 17, 2015
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today added a 92-GSa/s, 32-GHz modular instrument to its portfolio of arbitrary waveform generators. The new high-speed, wide-bandwidth M8196A arbitrary waveform generator allows engineers to generate digital, multi-level (e.g., PAM-4, PAM-8, DMT) signal scenarios at 8 bits vertical resolution and test their electrical and optical links with complex modulated signals up to 64 GBaud. This makes the M8196A the fastest and most versatile signal generator in the industry. The M8196A supports leading edge research for 100 Gb/s, 400 Gb/s and 1 Tb/s communication applications.
"The M8196A AWG provides synchronized dual polarization I/Q signal at unrivaled speed, bandwidth and channel density," said Juergen Beck, general manager and vice president of Keysight's Digital and Photonic Test Division. "This provides communication test engineers with new tools to solve challenges in 100 Gb/s and 400 Gb/s Ethernet and coherent applications."
The M8196A arbitrary waveform generator supports:
The M8196A offers:
The M8196A runs on a 1-slot AXIe modular system designed for high-performance instrumentation.
U.S. Pricing and Availability
The M8196A arbitrary waveform generator can be ordered now at an entry price of $140,000.
