Tektronix, Inc. (Beaverton, OR) has announced a new Phase Reference Module, the 82A04B, for the DSA8300 oscilloscope that when combined with new electrical sampling modules provide instrument jitter of <100 femtoseconds, typical. This represents the lowest instrument jitter of any multi-channel oscilloscope on the market, sampling, or real-time, making the DSA8300 the instrument of choice for design, debug, and characterization of critical 100G transmitters and links on up to 6 channels as defined in the IEEE802.3ba & 32G Fibre Channel test specifications. Features include:

  • Input clock frequencies from 2 to 32 GHz with an option available to support up to 60 GHz. 
  • Low vertical noise and low intrinsic jitter.
  • Data rates up to > 45 GHz for the latest IEEE and Fibre Channel standards.
