The ASNT_PRBS32A can be used for test applications, design verification, and R&D environments. The pseudo random bit sequence (PRBS) generator operates from 4Gbps to 32Gbps. A single-ended half-rate clock is needed to ensure the instrument’s operation. An input frequency of 16GHz corresponds to a 32Gbps PRBS data output. The output data is adjustable from 0V to 1.2V differentially.  The trigger output is a user defined divide ratio from 1 to 256. I/O’s are SMA female connectors with internal AC coupling. All operation and adjustment controls are accessed by a GUI controlled interface connected through a USB port. Power is supplied with an included AC-DC power supply.
