Digital communications analyzer

Digital communications analyzer

HP 83480A digital communications analyzer is a measurement tool for characterizing optical and electrical waveforms, using automated "eye" measurements, mask and template testing, and continuous traces with the HP Eyeline mode option. Masks align and scale to the displayed waveform, or the waveform can be scaled and aligned to the mask. Test conditions can be set according to the number of waveforms, samples, failed waveforms or failed samples. The mainframe holds two plug-in modules, for a total of four measurement channels. Among the modules are the HP 83481A 155-, 622-, 2488- and 9953-Mbit/sec optical reference receiver, HP 83483A dual 20-GH¥electrical channels, HP 83484A 50-GH¥single electrical channel, and the HP 83485A 20-GH¥integrated optical channel/SDH Sonet reference receiver and 40-GH¥electrical channel. Analyzer prices start at $16,000 and delivery time is 12 weeks.
