   CENTELLAX TG5P1A   Description / Specification:    
CENTELLAX TG5P1A 1.5-12.5Gb/s Pattern Generator Remote Tx Head

The Centellax TG5P1A generator heads include integrated two tap de-emphasis conditioning. Commonly used in higher data rate systems to open eyes by counteracting high frequency loss in the channel, applying de-emphasis to the test signal is required for receiver testing. Other vendors’ generators require additional dedicated external signal processors. The internal de-emphasis conditioning in the TG5P1A generator heads eliminates the expense of additional signal processors, as well as the associated signal degradation resulting from the extra cables used to connect them. Each head connects to a PCB12500 controller through a 1 m cable. Specifications. Signal Configuration: Differential, will operate in single-ended mode. Data Line Coding: Non-return to Zero (NRZ).

Standard Calibration $1,250.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the CENTELLAX TG5P1A. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Decibel (dB)
A unit of measurement of optical power which indicates relative power. A -10 dB means a reduction in power by 10 times, -20 dB means another 10 times or 100 times overall, -30 means another 10 times or 1000 times overall and so on.

Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) is a transmission system for voice communication using plesiochronous synchronisation. The transmitter adds dummy information bits to allow multiple channels to be bit interleaved. The receiver discards these bits once the signals have been demultiplexed. PDH combines multiple 2 Mb/s (E1) channels in Europe and 1.544 Mb/s (DS1) channels in the US and Japan.

Spectral Width
Spectral Width is the wavelength interval over which the magnitude of all spectral components is equal to or greater than a specified fraction of the magnitude of the component having the maximum value. In optical communications applications, the usual method of specifying spectral width is the full width at half maximum. This is the same convention used in bandwidth, defined as the frequency range where power drops by less than half (at most -3 dB).
