Superior performance with extraordinary versatility

The DSA8300 Digital Serial Analyzer is the most versatile tool for developing and testing communications, computers, and consumer electronics which use multi-gigabit data transmission. It is used for optical and electrical transmitter characterization, as well as compliance verification for devices, modules, and systems used in these products.

In addition, the DSA8300 is well-suited for electrical signal path characterization, whether for packages, PCBs, or electrical cables. With exceptional bandwidth, signal fidelity, and the most extensible modular architecture, the DSA8300 provides the highest-performance TDR and interconnect analysis, most accurate analysis of signal impairments, and BER calculations for current and emerging serial data technology.

Passive interconnect test

Finally, with its exceptional signal fidelity and resolution, the DSA8300 is the gold standard for electrical and optical applications which require ultra-high bandwidths, very fine vertical resolution, low jitter, and/or exceptionally low noise.

The DSA8300 provides unmatched measurement system fidelity with the lowest native instrument jitter floor (425 fs RMS, typical for serial data signals at rates >1.25 Gb/s) that ensures the most accurate acquisition of up to 8 high-bandwidth signals simultaneously. You get additional analysis benefits from acquisition jitter below 100 fs RMS when using the 82A04B Phase Reference module.

The multiprocessor architecture, with dedicated per-slot digital signal processors (DSPs), provides fast waveform acquisition rates, reducing the test times necessary for reliable characterization and compliance verification.

The DSA8300’s versatile modular architecture supports a large and growing family of plug-ins enabling you to configure your measurement system with a wide variety of electrical, optical, and accessory modules that best suit your application now and in the future. With 6 module slots, the DSA8300 can simultaneously accommodate a Clock Recovery module, a precision Phase Reference module, and multiple acquisition modules (electrical or optical), so you can match system performance to your evolving needs. The ability to swap sampling modules without powering down the DSA8300 (available for scopes with firmware versions 6.1 and later) provides additional flexibility in configuring your DSA8300 to changing test needs.

In addition, specialized modules supporting features such as single-ended and differential electrical clock recovery, electrostatic protection for electrical samplers, and connectivity to the popular TekConnect®probing system brings you the performance of state-of-the-art Tektronix probes for high-impedance and differential probing. Low-impedance probes for 50 Ω probing and for TDR probing are also available.

The raw acquisition performance of the DSA8300 and its sampling modules and accessories is further augmented by the comprehensive measurement and analysis capabilities of the DSA8300 and its associated software applications.

See the Ordering information for a list of currently available software applications and modules.

Measurement and analysis tools for optical testing applications

The DSA8300 includes a wide variety of measurement and analysis tools which specifically address optical testing applications. In addition to the standard amplitude and timing parametric measurements (such as rise/fall times, amplitude, RMS jitter, RMS noise, frequency, period, and so on), the measurement suite for the DSA8300 includes measurements specifically tailored to measuring optical signals (average optical power, extinction ratio, eye height, eye width, optical modulation amplitude (OMA), and so on). For a complete list of measurements, see theMeasurementsection of this datasheet.

The DSA8300 also includes standard compliance testing masks for all of the common optical standards from 155 Mb/s to 100 Gb/s. The DSA8300 mask testing system includes the ability to automatically fit standard and user masks to data acquired into a waveform database. The mask test system can also automatically determine the mask margin based either on the total number of mask violations or the "hit ratio" of mask violation to the number of samples acquired in the mask test unit interval. Users can also create custom masks for automated mask testing. Histograms and cursor measurements are also available to analyze optical signals acquired by the DSA8300.

Calibration kits and accessories (3rd party)

For best S-parameter measurement results with the 80E10B, 80E08B, and 80E04 electrical TDR modules and IConnect® software, we recommend precision calibration kits, adapter kits, connector savers, airlines, torque wrenches, and connector gauges from Maury Microwave.

These components are compatible with the 2.92 mm, 2.4 mm, and 1.85 mm connectors of the 80E00 modules. Contact Maury Microwave (www.maurymw.com/tektronix.htm) to order calibration kits and other components.
