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™ OPB-X110
11 Gbps Optical & Electrical Bit-Error-Rate Tester (BERT)
The OPTELLENT OptoBERT™ OPBX110 is a cost-effective easy-to-use 10G optical and electrical bit-error-ratio tester (BERT) for testing components and systems in R&D and manufacturing environments as well as field installations. The OPBX110 incorporates an internal reference clock, a pattern generator, clock recovery circuits, and a BER analyzer, in one compact module that provides both electrical and optical interfaces at data rates up to 11.5 Gb/s. The OPBX110 is offered with an RS-232 or USB interface and a standard 2-year warranty. An intuitive Graphical User Interface enables easy point-and-click operation. Software drivers are available for incorporating the OptoBERT into test automation suites using programs like LabVIEW, VisualBASIC, HP VEE. BER test data from the OptoBERT are output directly into a spreadsheet file without any programming.
