NRZ-M4 Optical Manufacturing TDEC Analysis Software
DSA8300 NRZ-M4 optical analysis software
The Tektronix NRZ-M4 application provides NRZ signaling analysis, including TDEC (Transmitter and Dispersion Eye Closure) measurement. The application brings together NRZ optical measurements in a simple and easy to use application. This application is designed to minimize the waveform analysis time which suits the manufacturing environment.
This application is intended to be installed on a PC and works by connecting to the sampling scope. Application allows you to acquire signal directly from the connected DSA8300 sampling oscilloscope and analyze the acquired waveform data.
Simultaneously analyze up to 4 optical channels
Characterization of 100Gbps Optical transceivers (SR4, LR4) devices with Mask margin measurements. Perform optimal mask fitting for better margin.
Support for Transmitter dispersion eye closure (TDEC) and Vertical eye closure penalty (VECP) measurements.
Support for 80C10C, 80C17, 80C18, 80C20 and 80C21 optical modules.
Signal characterization measurements such as Amplitude and Timing measurements
Support for Phase reference characterization clock for more accurate results.
Support for measurements at various population limits.
Show results as numeric and graphical display.
Display 2D eye diagrams with embedded mask
Save the analysis results to a file.
Run multiple instances of the application and connect each of them to different DSA8300s' and perform parallel analysis of multiple channels.

The NRZ-M4 application is designed to run on a PC running Windows operating system. A high performance PC is recommended to minimize the computation time of waveform analysis.
Operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 (64 bit) operating system.
Screen resolution: 1920 x 1080 with scaling factor set to 100%.
The NRZ-M4 application requires the following software to be installed on the PC.
TekVISA: TekVISA version 188.8.131.52 is recommended. Installation is available during NRZ-M4 installation.
Matlab runtime: Matlab 2017b version 9.3 is required.
Scope Noise Characterization: Install the Scope Noise Characterization software on the DSA8300. This software is bundled with the NRZ-M4 application package.
