LeCroy Corp. has introduced the SDA 6000 serial data analyzer (SDA) that features a signal capture bandwidth of 6GHz for data rates of up to 3.33Gbps, enabling it to be used in computer (and component) design/validation, testing of high speed differential electrical links, and capture/analysis of optical signals (up to and including OC-48).

The company also released the SDA 5000 that provides 5GHz signal capture bandwidth for data rates up to 2.5Gbps and the SDA 3000, which offers a 3GHz bandwidth for data rates up to 1.5Gbps. All modules incorporate LeCroy's X-Stream technology allowing engineers to conduct real-time analysis on high-speed, complex data rates at up to 3.33Gbps.

The SDA 6000 features a maximum sampling rate of 20GSa/s, trigger jitter <2.5ps, long acquisition memory, and is designed with a number of specialized analysis tools. In addition to locating signal degradation problems, it can also trace the problem back to its origin, allowing for the comprehensive analysis of serial data streams, telecommunications components, transceiver subassemblies and transmission systems.

The acquisition memory can accept 10GBps for up to 48 million points of acquisition and can packetize the data from the front-end ADC and transfers the packets in a real-time streaming mode via dual high speed data busses to the CPU board.

Also featured in the device is an 10.4-inch TFT-LCD touchscreen panel, CD-ROM drive, floppy-disk drive, and SVGA video, Ethernet, parallel, and USB ports. It consumes 800W and is rated for operation over the 5C to 40C temperature range.

The SDA 5000 and SDA 3000 also offer most of the features of the SDA 6000 and includes optional accessories such as optical to electrical converters and reference receivers with optical bandwidth above 4GHz.
