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.


4.25Gb/s Optical & Electrical Pattern Generator (PPG)
The OPTELLENT OPG4250 is a cost-effective easy-to-use electrical and optical data pattern
generator for testing Fibre Channel (FC) devices, components, modules and systems in R&D
and manufacturing environments as well as field installations of Storage Area Networks (SANs).
OPB4250 supports 4GFC, 2GFC and 1GFC. The OPB4250 tester is also ideal for Gigabit Ethernet
and Infiniband (2.5G) testing. The OPG4250 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 4.25 Gbps.
Additionally, the OPG4250 is offered with multiple PRBS outputs, popular stress patterns, and
user-defined patterns. The OPG4250 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 OPG4250 into test automation suites using programs
like LabVIEW, VisualBASIC, HP VEE.
