The Keysight 81134A Pulse Pattern Generator – 3.35 GHz dual-channel – is the next generation in Keysight’s high-speed Pulse Pattern Generators.

When timing and performance requirements are critical for example in high-speed serial bus applications like PCI Express or Serial ATA its fast rise times and low intrinsic jitter allow the precise and in-depth characterization of devices e.g. receivers or backplanes. On top of that it allows to generate application-specific signal levels like pre- and de-emphasis (PCI Express) or squelch (Serial ATA). The Keysight 81134A lets you test your DUT instead of the pulse or data source! Hardware-based PRBS Memory-based pattern generation Basic test patterns for Infiniband PCI-Express and Serial ATA Deep 12 MBit pattern memory per channel supports tests that require long data streams like disk drive tests PC-based Pattern Management Tool easier to handle long patterns: generate modify and store patterns on a Microsoft Windows based PC and an easy-to-use function to quickly load the selected pattern to the 81134A via one of the remote control interfaces GPIB LAN or USB Clock and data signals distortion Versatile variable cross-point Jitter insertion capabilities Frequency level and shape of injected jitter variation emulate real-world signals e.g. by connecting an arbitrary waveform generator like the Keysight 33220A to the Pulse Pattern Generators delay control input Graphics User Interface: quick access to all relevant parameters Controllable via the interfaces GPIB LAN and USB 2.0 For a quick demonstration of the 81134A please see the new 81133A/81134A Video!
