Centellax BERT, Clock Synthesizer and Clock Recovery Unit

The Centellax BERT is used to characterize the error rate associated with the transmission of digital signals between a component’s output and input. For researchers who require precise control of the input signal to their system-under-test over a broad range of frequencies.

The Centellax clock synthesizer and clock recovery unit are designed to extend the operation of the BERT.
