Keysight (Agilent) 83496A

The 83496A multi-rate electrical Clock Recovery (CR) module performs clock extraction for waveform analysis with continuous, unbanded tuning from 50 Mb/s to 13.5 Gb/s, ultra-low residual jitter and Golden Phase Locked Loop (PLL) operation. It provides the first true hardware Golden PLL triggering system because the loop bandwidth can be tuned to the precise values called out in standards for data rates within its operating range.

Optical clock recovery (option 101 only)

  • Inputs & outputs: 9/125 µm (single-mode) to 62.5/125 µm (multimode)
  • Wavelength range: 1250-1650 nm (single-mode), 750-1330 nm (multimode)
  • Minimum optical modulation amplitude: -11 dBm (1310/1550 single-mode), -10 dBm (1310 multimode), -8 dBm (850 multimode)

Electrical clock recovery (option 100 only)

  • Inputs: single-ended or differential, 3.5 mm (m) connectors
  • Outputs (option 100 only): single-ended or differential, 3.5 mm (m) connectors
  • Minimum electrical input level: 75 mVpp

Continuous unbanded tuning from 50 Mb/s up to 13.5 Gb/s

  • Golden PLL operation (with option 300) with a tunable loop bandwidth from 15 KHz to 10 MHz
  • Ultra low residual jitter: < 300 fs rms (characteristic at 10 Gb/s)
