Anritsu 64Gbaud DAC simplifies verification of 400GbE devices

Anritsu has introduced the G0361A, a 64Gbaud two-bit digital to analogue converter (DAC) with dual-channel 2x1 multiplexers.

When connected to the MP1800A signal quality analyser, it creates what the company claims is the industry’s first test set-up that supports signal generation and bit error rate (BER) tests for high baud rate signals, such as 128G PAM4 (four-level pulse amplitude modulation).
