Accuracy and ease-of-use for high-speed digital communications signals to 32 Gbps! The 86108B Precision Waveform Analyzer, engineered for design and validation engineers faced with the difficult task of accurately characterizing the TRUE performance of their designs, is a plug-in module used with the 86100D DCA-X and 86100C DCA-J mainframes.

With industry-best residual jitter well below 50 femtoseconds (typical), channel bandwidths of 35 GHz or 50 GHz, and an integrated instrumentation-grade hardware clock recovery circuit, the Agilent 86108B Precision Waveform Analyzer is a “gold standard” that provides accurate jitter analysis, eye diagram, and waveform characterization on signals from 50 Mbps to 32 Gbps.

Integrated clock recovery provides a 'triggerless' single connection measurement and provides continuous data rate coverage for next generation designs including PCIe 3.0, 10GBASE-KR, 8G/16G/32G Fibre Channel, CEI 3.0 (25G/28G), 10Gb/40Gb/100Gb Ethernet and proprietary rates.

Perform analysis even in the presence of spread-spectrum clocking or closed eyes.
