Optellent Introduces Compact 4-channel 10Gbps Bit-error-rate Tester

(March 23, 2009; San Jose, CA) – Optellent, a provider of high value test and measurement solutions for product development, manufacturing, and field installation, has introduced the OPB04X10, the industry’s most compact 4-channel 10-Gbps bit-error-rate (BER) tester. This device is the latest addition to the OptoBERT™ family of optical/electrical BER testers and is ideal for active optical cable and multi-channel 10Gb/s transceiver applications.

“By introducing the OPB04X10 OptoBERT™ tester, Optellent has responded strongly to the need for efficient and cost-effective means of testing multi-channel 40G, and 100G products”, stated Vinod Ramakrishnan, Optellent’s President and CEO.

The OPB04X10 features four electrical unframed data generators and four electrical BER analyzers which can run at the same data rate or optionally at independent data rates between 9.95 and 11.32 Gb/s. The OPB04X10 has built-in clock and data recovery functions, and comes with an intuitive Graphical User Interface as well as drivers for test automation.

“The new 4-channel OptoBERT™ tester further strengthens Optellent’s leadership in providing practical, highly flexible, and economical test systems that significantly increase the productivity in cable, IC, and transceiver manufacturing applications”, Ramakrishnan continued. “We have also augmented our OptoBERT™ product line with an OPB5000 tester that operates up to 5 Gb/s and offers pre-/de-emphasis options.”

The OPB04X10 and the OPB5000 products will be on display in the Optellent booth, #T1538, at OFC/NFOEC, March 24-26, San Diego, California, USA.
