Model DG2816

300Mb/s 16-Channels Digital Signal Amplifier/POD

The 2816 is a data generator pod that operates only in conjunction with one of the following Tabor generators: WW2571A and WW2572A, PM8571A and PM8572A. Combined they become a fully featured, high performance, 300Mb/s 16 Channels Digital Data Generator that provides a flexible and innovative solution answering the needs of today’s digital designers in performing characterization, validation, verification or debugging of circuits.

Pattern Memory

The Data Generator combo offers two pattern memory options: the data can be stored on a dedicated 128k per channel pattern memory or alternatively for longer patterns the arbitrary memory of up to 4M can be used, allowing the user to work in parallel with arbitrary waveforms.

Independent Level Control

As standard, the generator comes with a rear-panel connector that feeds 16 LVDS data channels into matching 100 loads. The 2816 pod converts the LVDS levels from the waveform generator output to any level within a 4Vp-p amplitude window into 50 ohms. Each channel has its own controls, so it is possible to create unique levels for a single or groups of data channels, extending the use of the standard generators to a vast array of digital design applications.

Digital and Analog Channels Simultaneously

While the digital data can be generated through the 2816, analog waveforms can be generated simultaneously from the front panel of the Tabor Generator. Users can either generate analog waveforms and their digital representation, or using the 2-channel Tabor generator to create 16-bits of digital data from channel 1 and independent analog waveforms from channel 2.

Pattern Editing and Sequencing

The 2816 provides an ideal solution for applications that require characterization of a circuit or device timing as well as amplitude margins. Using the Pattern Composer, which is included with the ArbConnection software, any complex data pattern can be designed quickly and easily. Using the sequencer enables insertion of infrequent faults and glitches into the data patterns to verify device or circuit recovery.

Target applications

Target applications include: parallel communication test between devices, characterize device timing, characterize and verify Asic, FPGA and DACs, D/A communication for cell phones and digital TV, create complex data patterns using the sequencer, test LCD display drivers, and more.
