Ixia has announced the addition of four new interface modules to its 40Gb bit error rate testing (BERT) system, including a 40Gbps serial transmitter, serial receiver, serial transmitter with programmable output amplitude, and an advanced serial receiver with extended dynamic range.

Each of the four new interface modules is hot-swappable and fully compatible with the company's existing 40Gbps BERT Load Module. The addition of these serial modules to the company's existing SFI-5 parallel interface modules also extend Ixia's test capabilities to include a wider range of 40Gbps components such as multiplexers, demultiplexers, TIAs, CDRs, laser drivers, FEC encoders, and OC-768 devices.

A complete Ixia 40Gb BERT solution includes chassis, Load Module with SFI-5 parallel interfaces, 300-pin MSA evaluation board, signal break out boards, and cabling can be purchased for under $250,000.
