The OptoBERT family of BERTs offers the best value in the industry for bit-error-ratio testing of optical and electrical components, subsystems
and systems. OptoBERT family of products covers data rates from 100 Mb/s to 28.05 Gb/s.



The OptoBERT™ OPB04X15 is the industry’s most compact, cost-effective, easy-to-use 4-channel 15Gbps electrical bit-error-ratio tester (BERT) for testing components, cables and systems in R&D and manufacturing environments. The OPB04X15 incorporates four pattern generators, four BER analyzers, internal reference clocks, and clock recovery circuits in one compact module to simultaneously test four channels at data rates up to 14.025 Gb/s. The OPB04X15 has an option to operate each channel at different data rates especially for cross-talk testing purposes.

An intuitive Graphical User Interface enables easy pointand- click operation. Software drivers are available for incorporating the OptoBERT into test automation suites using programs like LabVIEW, VisualBASIC and VEE.

BER test data from the OptoBERT are output directly to a spreadsheet file without any programming.
