A range of standard PRBS test patterns and automatic pattern recognition / synchronisation are provided for simple performance checks. It also has flexible WORD generation and zero substitution to explore regenerator timing recovery performance and detect systematic errors.
Binary clock and data or ternary coded data interfaces can be selected with automatic equalisation at 2,8 and 34 Mb/s on the receiver. Results are displayed as error COUNT or BER over a range of gating periods, and can be logged or presented graphically on an external printer.

3780A Measurements

Binary errors: closed loop bit-by-bit detection on any pattern produced by generator. excluding added zeros or alternating words.
Code errors: violations of coding rule detected on any pattern with AMI, HDB3, or HDB2 coding (optionally AMI, B6ZS, or B3ZS).
Frequency offset: measurement of fractional offset of generator clock output from installed crystal rates.
