A 2-Gb/s optical transceiver with accelerated bit-error-ratio test capability


Accelerated bit-error-ratio (BER) measurement techniques using specialized test equipment are widely used for rapidly verifying the low BER (<10/sup -12/) of high-performance optical links. However, once these links are deployed in the field, it takes days to weeks to complete such BER measurements using a conventional testing method. This paper describes… (More)
