Tektronix / Microwave Logic GigaBert 660 DRx/Tx Bit Error Rate Test Set

  • GPIB and RS-232C Interfaces
  • Operating Frequency up to 700 MHz


The GB660 is a general-purpose 660 Mb/s bit error rate tester (BERT) built to meet the exacting standards of design engineers who need to verify and characterize high-speed serial data transmission circuits, interfaces and systems. While primarily a lab instrument, the GB660’s compact design, full computer programmability and relatively light weight also enable it to serve in manufacturing ATE and field test applications. The quality of a digital link depends on many factors, but everything comes down to the issue of whether the circuit exhibits a satisfactory BER (bit error rate) and has sufficient margin to function under stress conditions. The GB660 has all of the features you expect in a general-purpose BERT, and some you expect only in more expensive instruments, such as automated eye-width measurements at a specified BER, and the ability to accept an external real-time data stream for bit error testing.

The GB660 is focused on the research, design, and manufacturing of telecommunication components, modules, or links operating at data rates to 660 Mb/s. It is frequently employed in testing and development well under this top speed rating, where sharp clock and data waveforms are especially desired, or where additional frequency range is thought to be needed in the future.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!

InstraView Request Form

To get started:

  1.   Fill in the request form below
  2.   We'll send you an email letting you know exactly when your piece of equipment will be available for viewing
