What makes the Real-Time BERD Different from the rest?


Based on our user-defined FPGA Instruments, the HoustonMIcro Real-Time BERD is a Closed-Loop Bit Error Rate Tester.  It uses data and clocks from your system under test directly, as opposed to PRBS, repeating, or pre-defined "canned" patterns.  Traditional BERT's place the system in a test mode where PRBS or other pre-defined patterns are generated.  Pre-defined patterns can generate misleading Bit Error Rate (BER) results since the test is performed under ideal and unrealistic data conditions. By using your system real data instead, in a closed-loop configuration, the system can be tested under realistic data conditions, providing a higher fidelity test and a more realistic Bit Error Rate, so that the results reflect how your system will perform in the real environment, and identify problems that can otherwise go undetected.  Because the R/T BERD is independent to data pattern, PRBS or other predefined test patterns can also be used, in addition to real-time data.  For more information, please contact us at the link below...
