Tektronix, Inc. unveiled the industry’s first fully integrated 40 Gb/s Programmable Pattern Generator (PPG). The 40 Gb/s PPG, along with the previously announced 40 Gb/s Programmable Error Detector, now completes a 40 Gb/s BERT solution.  
With 200 fs Random Jitter (RJ) and 8 ps risetime performance, the new Tektronix PPG4001 delivers the performance and signal quality critical for serial data testing at 40 Gb/s. 

Design engineers developing high-speed data and long-haul communications technologies must test their SERDES, ICs, components, modules, and systems to ensure that they are working to specification.
