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 28.05 Gb/s.


28 Gbps Compact Data Pattern Generator
The OPTELLENT OptoBERT™ OPBX280 is a costeffective easy-to-use 28 Gbps data pattern generator (PPG) for testing components, cables, and systems in R&D and manufacturing environments at data rates up to 28 Gb/s. The OPGX280 incorporates an internal reference clock, and a pattern generator in an extremely compact module. The OPGX280 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.
