Tektronix DPP125C Digital Pre-Emphasis Processor

Manufacturer: Tektronix
Model Number: DPP125C
The Digital Pre-emphasis Processor DPP Series DPP125C takes in single-ended inputs of data and clock and conditions the signal by adding precision amounts of pre-emphasis for use with Bit Error Rate Testers. Includes: 4T = 12.5 Gb/s Four Tap Digital Pre-Emphasis Processor. ECM = Combo configuration including Eye Opener: Clock doubler and Multiplier. ECM targets 2 very specific applications - PCIEGen3 and SAS12G.
