Oscilloscopes Utilize SDA II
Predicting bit error rates directly on the eye visually, LeCroy’s SDA 7xxZi Series oscilloscopes integrate SDA II with IsoBER to determine the minimum eye opening, and detecting cross-talk by analyzing the vertical eye closure. The instruments use X-Stream II architecture to decompose jitter simultaneously through traditional spectral and NQ-Scale algorithms, which warns when there is a deviation between the results with a color-coded warning system. Intuitive graphical views of jitter decomposition show the root cause of problems through a periodic jitter spectrum identifying the sources having the most periodic jitter, an ISI Plot isolating bit patterns contributing the most intersymbol interference, and a DDJ histogram for insight into the distribution of data dependent jitter. The tools include a 15.3” 16:9 HD touchscreen display, removable front panel, LSIB serial interface bus, TriggerScan, and WaveScan. Pricing starts at $39,490.
