Bit Error Rate Generator / AWGN Generator
  • Note: The newer COM-1524 now provides higher performance and extended functionality
  • Synchronous serial bit error rate generator. Generates randomly distributed bit errors
  • Additive white gaussian noise generator. 2-channel, 10 bits/sample
  • Maximum throughput 40 Msamples/s
  • Accurately generates Additive White Gaussian Noise. Normal distribution up to 4.5 times the standard deviation. Box-Muller algorithm
  • Tabulates actual bit errors over an adjustable window from 1,000 bits to 1,000,000,000 bits, to trade off BER range and measurement duration
  • Connectorized 3”x 3” module for ease of prototyping. Standard 40 pin 2mm dual row connectors (left, right, bottom). Single 5V Supply. Interfaces with 5V and 3.3V logic
