Description :

The N4951B is an affordable and compact pattern generator remote head available in 4 to 17 Gb/s and 5 to 32 Gb/s configurations. Compatible with the N4960A Serial BERT controller, it is the perfect solution to test up to 32 Gb/s per channel for 100 Gigabit Ethernet applications and other high-data rate devices. The N4951B pattern generator supports PRBS or user patterns and operates up to 32 Gb/s in a single band with no gaps or missing data rates. The remote head allows the test equipment to be located very close to the device under test, eliminating the need for long cables that degrade signal quality.
