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.



The OPTELLENT OptoBERT™ OPB5000 is a cost-effective easy-to-use bit-error-rate tester (BERT) for testing datacom ICs, devices, components, modules and systems in R&D and manufacturing environments as well as field installations of Storage Area Networks (SANs). OPB5000 supports 4GFC, 2GFC and 1GFC. The OPB5000 tester is also ideal for Gigabit Ethernet, Infiniband (2.5G) and PCIe testing. It incorporates a pattern generator, clock recovery circuits, and a bit-errorratio analyzer in one compact module that provides optical and electrical interfaces at up to 5Gb/s. An intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) enables easy
point-and-click operation. The GUI displays error counts, BER, and related statistics. The OptoBERT has a recording feature to output the measured BER results into a spreadsheet file without any programming or scripting.
