SKU: M8020A-16G-GEN Category: Tag:


The high-performance Keysight 8020A-16G enables fast, accurate receiver characterization of single- and multi-lane devices running up to 16 Gb/s.

With today’s highest level of integration, the Keysight (formerly Agilent) M8020A-16G streamlines your test setup. In addition, automated in situ calibration of signal conditions ensures accurate and repeatable measurements. And, through interactive link training, it can behave like your DUT’s link partner. All in all, the J-BERT M8020A-16G will accelerate insight into your design.

Versatility is one of the M8020A-16G’s strongest features, and as such the device can be used for various research and development based applications.
