Arbitrary wave generator capable of 256 GS/ S and 80 GHz BW

Date: 27/09/2022
High precision and extreme performance focused test equipment maker Keysight has launched its new signal generator M8199B arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) generating arbitrary wave signals in multi-level modulation formats such as 64QAM at speeds exceeding 160 Gbaud.

The new M8199B produces arbitary wave-signals up to sampling rate of 256 Gsa/s and analog bandwidth exceeding 80 GHz, including up to eight synchronized channels operating simultaneously. This system is a good choice to design high-speed optical networking system with speeds of 400 Gb/s per lane in intensity modulation/direct detect (IM/DD) and communications speeds exceeding 1.6 Tb/s per carrier in coherent optical communications.

"Today's applications and services generate vast amounts of artificial intelligence workloads in the data center. New electrical and optical designs are required to handle these workloads within reasonable bounds of energy consumption," said Dr. Joachim Peerlings, vice president and general manager of Keysight's Network and Data Center business. "We are pleased with Keysight's continuous efforts to deliver first-to-market solutions that support our customers to connect and sustain our planet and take the next step in the race for higher data transmission rates."

In optical communications domain, the M8199B supports multi-level PAM, quadrature-amplitude modulation QAM formats and other any such proprietary modulation formats at symbol rates up to 200 Gbaud. This system can also be used to generate stress signal for electro-optical devices, high-speed DSP integrated SOC chips, and to test any new algorithms multi-terabit transmitting systems.

In the radar and wireless communication area, this generator fulfills the needs of high-quality signals with modulation bandwidths exceeding 10 GHz. And the signal generator can provide that signal as intermediate frequency (IF) instead of quadrature signals.

For any other scientific research and general electronics experimentation, this arbitrary waveform signal generator has the ability to produce a wave form matching the mathematics of that signal. Some of the examples include ultra-short pulses, wideband RF pulses, and chirps needed to investigate in applications such as chemical reactions, elementary particle excitation and quantum effects.

Keysight said this M8199B AWG equipment to be available in October 2022.
