Engineers can use the digitiser with the Jitter Analysis Toolkit, which provides a library of functions optimised for performing the high-throughput jitter, eye diagram and phase noise measurements demanded by automated validation and production test.
Equipped with a 256MB per channel memory board, the digitiser also provides high sustained sample rates over extended data capture windows.
