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 11.5Gb/s.


OptoBERT™ OPB3200
3.2Gbps Optical & Electrical Bit-Error-Rate Tester (BERT)
The OPTELLENT OptoBERT™ OPB3200 is a cost-effective easy-to-use bit-error-ratio (BER)
measurement system for testing components and systems in R&D and manufacturing
environments as well as field installations. It incorporates a pattern generator, clock recovery
circuits, and a bit-error-ratio analyzer in one compact module that provides both electrical and
optical interfaces at data rates up to 3.2Gb/s. The OptoBERT integrated system eliminates the
need for additional interface modules to test devices.
The OPB3200 is offered with either preset discrete datarates or with a continuously variable
datarate (1kHz step size).
An intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) enables easy point-and-click operation. The GUI
displays error counts, BER, and features a unique error-events display for measuring events
such as signal interruption due to optical switching.
BER test data from the OptoBERT are output directly into a spreadsheet file without any
programming or scripting.
