The Data/Pattern Generators (PPGs) offer both electrical and optical outputs with standard and custom data patterns. PPG products cover data rates ranging from 100 Mb/s to 11.5 Gb/s.


1.25Gb/s Optical & Electrical Pattern Generator (PPG)
The OPTELLENT OPG1250 is a cost-effective easy-to-use electrical and optical data pattern
generator for testing components and systems in R&D and manufacturing environments as
well as field installations. The OPG1250 incorporates an internal reference clock, a pseudo
-random bit sequence (PRBS) source, and an RS-232 or USB interface in one compact module
that provides both electrical and optical outputs at data rates up to 1.25 Gbps. Additionally,
the OPG1250 is offered with multiple PRBS outputs, popular stress patterns, and user-defined
patterns. The OPG1250 comes with a standard 2-year warranty.
An intuitive Graphical User Interface enables easy point-and-click operation. Software drivers
are available for incorporating the OPG1250 into test automation suites using programs
like LabVIEW, VisualBASIC, HP VEE.
