GBIC Test Platform
Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel are developing into leading communication standards for the backbones of local area networks and enterprise storage systems. In support of these technologies, Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICs) have become an industry standard for interfacing network hubs, processors and storage devices via optical fiber links. The GTS1250 is an instrument for testing and evaluating GBICs. They accept GBICs via a receptacle on the front-panel, and provide access to their electrical Transmit and Receive interface, as well as all other monitoring pins.

Programmed or External Test Patterns
For the transmitter side of the GBIC, the instruments can generate test patterns based on Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet standards, and accept externally generated patterns. The built-in patterns are selected on the instrument front-panel or remotely through TTL levels. In addition, the instruments provide inputs for jitter modulation of the transmit data.

Receive Signals with Clock Recovery (Option 01)
On the receiver side of the GBIC, the instrument makes available the recovered and retimed data, and the recovered clock for Bit Error Rate Testers and eye pattern triggering. For diagnostic waveform analysis, the complementary unbuffered data signal from the GBIC is also made available.
