OEM Description

The 83434A receiver recovers clock and data from digitally modulated SONET/SDH OC-192/STM-64 optical signals. Option 83434A-106 substitutes clock recovery for FEC signals at 10.664 GHz, and option 83434A-H31 recovers the clock for 10 GigE. The amplified PIN-diode produces a linear output with AGC stabilization. The receiver is designed to provide –16 dBm sensitivity for a 231-1 PRBS with a BER performance of at least 1 x 10-10.
The 83434A receiver can also be used for optical eye diagram analysis with a sampling oscilloscope, such as the 86100B Infiniium DCA, when no separate clock signal is available or when an optical channel is not available. The clock output of the 83434A can be used to trigger an oscilloscope at 9.953 Gb/s (or 10.664 Gb/s with option 83434A-106, or 10.3125 Gb/s with option 83434A-H31) ensuring that the eye diagram is an accurate representation of all possible bit combinations on the incoming data stream. The non-retimed linear data output allows for diagnostic analysis of the incoming waveform.
