86100D-500 Productivity Package
Mainframe Software n/a n/a The eye diagram provides a method to display the overall performance of a transmitter in a single, easy to interpret display. In theory, when an oscilloscope timebase is wide enough to display multiple eye diagrams, once a significant number of samples have been collected, the adjacent eye diagrams are effectively replicas of each other. An exception can occur when the 86100 is triggered with a subrate clock that divides evenly into the data pattern length. Individual eye diagram displays are generated from specific sections of the data pattern rather than the entire pattern (Example: A 128 bit pattern length and a divide by 8 clock results in individual eyes containing only one eighth of the pattern.). The Rapid Eye feature of Option 500 takes advantage of the eye diagram redundancy effect to reduce the time required to create and display the eye while at the same time eliminating the possibility of incomplete eyes when subrate triggering is used.

86100D-300 Advanced Amplitude Analysis/RIN/Q-Factor
Mainframe Software n/a n/a In order to efficiently determine root cause for any type of signal degradation in the amplitude domain, one must first determine whether the problem is due to random or deterministic sources. In order to accomplish this task, 86100D-300 takes analysis techniques used in the time domain (jitter analysis) and extends them into the amplitude domain. The result is an in-depth view into impairments that are related to signal levels, either logic ones or logic zeroes, deviating from their ideal positions. The 86100D DCA-X works essentially the same way for inference analysis as it does for jitter analysis. The advanced triggering techniques allow each bit to be examined to determine correlated effects, as well as make multiple measurements on individual bits to determine uncorrelated effects. Frequency domain analysis through FFTs is used to extract random components. Dual-Dirac modeling techniques are also carried from the jitter domain and used in the interference domain. Isolating random noise contributions from the ONE logic level also permits the 86100D to quickly and accurately measure optical transceiver parameters such as Relative Intensity Noise (RIN) and IEEE 802.3ae RIN OMA. 86100D-ETR Enhanced Trigger and 86100D-200 Enhanced Jitter Analysis are required for 86100D-300.

86100D-200 Enhanced Jitter Analysis Software
Mainframe Software n/a n/a As data rates increase in both electrical and optical applications, jitter is an ever increasing measurement challenge. Decomposition of jitter into its constituent components is becoming more critical. It provides critical insight for jitter budgeting and performance optimization in device and system designs. Many communications standards require jitter decomposition for compliance. Traditionally, techniques for separation of jitter have been complex and often difficult to configure, and availability of instruments for separation of jitter becomes limited as data rates increase.86100D-200 Enhanced Jitter Analysis (Jitter Mode) provides simple, one button setup and execution of jitter analysis. It decomposes jitter into its constituent components and presents jitter data in various insightful displays. Combined with 86100D-300 Advanced Amplitude Analysis, the DCA-X will further analyze a signals ONE and ZERO levels, decomposing amplitude impairments into random (noise) and deterministic interference just like it does for jitter (timing) impairments using 86100D-200.Jitter Mode is licensed to an individual 86100D mainframe (requires hardware option 86100D-ETR Enhanced Trigger) using the instruments host ID and serial number. Jitter Mode operates with any DCA measurement module and covers all data rates, removing the traditional data rate limitations found with other jitter analyzers.

N9355CK01 DC coupled limiter
Electrical Channel(s) n/a n/a The N9355CK01 is a diode limiter to protect sensitive oscilloscope channels from damage due to electric overload stress (EOS) and electrostatic discharge (ESD). For example, voltages in excess of ±2V can destroy high-performance samplers used in oscilloscopes. The limiter dramatically reduces the likelihood that such voltages will reach the sensitive part of the instrument, hence ensuring that the oscilloscope will work reliably for a long time. Instruments with dual electrical channels, such as the 54754A, will need quantity two N9355CK01s. Step generators within the TDR modules use ≤ 0.2 V which is far less than the diode threshold of the N9355CK01 limiter. The N9355CK01 can also be used to protect the electrical channel of 86105X and similar modules, as long as the signal does not exceed the range -0.5V to +0.5V.

Electrical Channel(s) Optical Channel(s) 65 GHz 80 GHz Cutting edge component and subsystem designs require accurate characterization of very high-speed signals. When viewing waveforms in the 10 to 100 Gb/s range, three requirements are critical in an oscilloscope: a well designed frequency response, a wide bandwidth, and extremely low internal jitter. The 86116C optical and electrical modules represent some of the fastest solutions available for measuring high-speed communication signals. Characteristically with 45 or 70 GHz optical and 93 GHz electrical bandwidth, the 86116C when paired with the 86107A precision timebase module becomes the ideal solution for ultra high-speed waveform analysis. Designers will see the real performance of their devices and not aberrations created by the test equipment. The unfiltered bandwidth settings provide the best pulse fidelity mode for measurement and display of very high-speed waveforms and provides a fast full-width, half-max (FWHM) of less than 7.4 ps (86116C-041). User selectable bandwidth settings can reduce noise when observing small signals. The electrical channel features over 93 GHz bandwidth. This yields a 3.9 ps system risetime. Just as important as bandwidth, the channel has a well controlled frequency response to minimize waveform distortion. User selectable bandwidth settings can be used for reduced instrumentation noise.
83496B-100 Electrical clock recovery module with Phase Noise Analysis capability
Clock Recovery n/a 13.5 Gb/s (with option 200) The 83496B Clock Recovery Module with Phase Noise Analysis provides increased eye-mask and jitter measurement accuracy with breakthrough performance in clock recovery circuitry. It provides ideal performance for waveform analysis with the 86100C Digital Communications Analyzer and can derive a clock from signals with rates as low as 50 Mb/s-14.2 GB/s*, and any rate in between. At under 300 femtoseconds rms, the residual jitter of the output clock is virtually negligible, allowing accurate measurements of very low levels of signal jitter. Jitter spectrum and phase noise analysis on clock and data signals is available through a downloadable external application
54754A Differential & Single-ended TDR/TDT Module
lectrical Channel(s) TDR/TDT n/a 18 GHz The Agilent 54754A provides two 18-GHz channels that have built-in TDR step generators. The two channels may work in tandem to provide differential or common mode TDR stimulus/response, or may be used independently. Either channel works as a normal oscilloscope vertical system when the TDR/TDT step generators are not operating. To protect your investment, you may want to consider using an ESD Protective device such as the one available from Picosecond ATE.
