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 OPTELLENT OptoBERT™ OPBX280 is a costeffective easy-to-use bit-error-ratio tester (BERT) for testing components and systems in R&D and manufacturing environments at data rates up to 28 Gb/s. The OPBX280 incorporates an internal reference clock, a pattern generator, clock recovery, and a BER analyzer, in an extremely compact module. The OPBX280 is offered with USB interface and a standard 2-year warranty. 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, HP VEE. BER test data from the OptoBERT are output directly into a spreadsheet file without any programming.
