Overview of infiniium DCA-J
Features
PatternLock Triggering
The Enhanced Trigger Option (Option 001) on the 86100C
provides a fundamental capability never available
before in an equivalent time sampling oscilloscope.
This new triggering mechanism enables the DCA-J to
generate a trigger at the repetition of the input data
pattern – a pattern trigger. Historically, this capability
required the pattern source to provide this type of
trigger output to the scope. PatternLock automatically
detects the pattern length, data rate and clock rate
making the complex triggering mechanism transparent
to the user.
PatternLock enables the 86100C to behave more like a
real-time oscilloscope in terms of user experience.
Investigation of specific bits within the data pattern is
greatly simplified. Users that are familiar with real-time
oscilloscopes, but perhaps less so with equivalent time
sampling scopes will be able to ramp up quickly.
PatternLock adds another new dimension to pattern
triggering by enabling the mainframe software to take
samples at specific locations in the data pattern with
outstanding timebase accuracy. This capability is a
building block for many of the new capabilities available
in the 86100C described later.
Four Instruments in One
The 86100C Infiniium DCA-J can be viewed as four
high-powered instruments in one:
• A general-purpose wide-bandwidth sampling
oscilloscope; the new PatternLock triggering
significantly enhances the usability as a general
purpose scope
• A digital communications analyzer; the new
Eyeline Mode feature adds a powerful new tool to eye
diagram analysis
• A time domain reflectometer
• A jitter analyzer
Just select the instrument mode and start making
measurements.
Configurable to meet your needs
The 86100C supports a wide range of plug-ins for testing
both optical and electrical signals. Select plug-ins to get
the specific bandwidth, filtering, and sensitivity you need.
Jitter Analysis
The “J” in DCA-J represents jitter analysis. The 86100C
is a Digital Communications Analyzer with Jitter
analysis capability. The 86100C adds a fourth mode
of operation – Jitter Mode.
As data rates increase in both electrical and optical
applications, jitter is an ever increasing measurement
challenge. Decomposition of jitter into its constituent
components is becoming more critical. It provides
critical insight for jitter budgeting and performance
optimization in device and system designs. Many
emerging standards require jitter decomposition for
compliance. Traditionally, techniques for separation of
jitter have been complex and often difficult to configure,
and availability of instruments for separation of jitter
becomes very limited as data rates increase.
The DCA-J provides simple, one button setup and
execution of advanced waveform analysis. Jitter Mode
decomposes jitter into its constituent components and
presents jitter data in various insightful displays. Jitter
Mode operates at all data rates the 86100C supports,
removing the traditional data rate limitations from
complex jitter analysis. The 86100C brings several
key attributes to jitter analysis:
• Very low intrinsic jitter (both random and
deterministic) translates to a very low jitter noise
floor which provides unmatched jitter measurement
sensitivity.
• Wide bandwidth measurement channels deliver very
low intrinsic data dependent jitter and allow analysis
of jitter on all data rates up to 40 Gb/s and beyond.
• PatternLock triggering technology provides sampling
efficiency that makes jitter measurements very fast.
Jitter analysis functionality is segmented into two
software package options. Option 100 is the standard
jitter analysis software, and Option 101 is the advanced
waveform analysis software. Option 100 includes:
• Decomposition of jitter into Total Jitter (TJ), Random
Jitter (RJ), Deterministic Jitter (DJ), Periodic Jitter
(PJ), Data Dependent Jitter (DDJ), Duty Cycle
Distortion (DCD), and Jitter induced by Intersymbol
Interference (ISI).
• Various graphical and tabular displays of jitter data
• Export of jitter data to convenient delimited text
format
• Save / recall of jitter database

Option 101 requires Option 100 and adds additional
capability:
• Periodic jitter frequency
• Isolation and analysis of Sub-Rate Jitter (SRJ),
that is, periodic jitter that is at an integer sub-rate
of the bitrate.
• Bathtub curve display
• Jitter Mode operation with the patented 86107A
Precision Timebase Module
• Adjustable total jitter probability
As bit rates increase, channel effects cause significant
eye closure. Many new devices and systems are
employing equalization and pre/de-emphasis to
compensate for channel effects. Option 101 Advanced
Waveform Analysis will provide key tools to enable
design and test of devices and systems that must deal
with difficult channel effects:
• Capture of long single valued waveforms. PatternLock
triggering and the waveform append capability of
Option 101 enable very accurate pulse train data sets
up to 256 megasamples long.
• Equalization. The DCA-J can take a long single
valued waveform and route it through an equalizer
algorithm (default or user defined) and display
the resultant equalized waveform. The user can
simultaneously view the input (distorted) and output
(equalized) waveforms.
• Pattern lock triggering with 86107A
Digital communications analysis
Accurate eye-diagram analysis is essential for
characterizing the quality of transmitters used from
100 Mb/s to 40 Gb/s. The 86100C was designed
specifically for the complex task of analyzing digital
communications waveforms. Compliance mask and
parametric testing no longer require a complicated
sequence of setups and configurations. If you can press
a button, you can perform a complete compliance test.
The important measurements you need are right at your
fingertips, including:
• industry standard mask testing with built-in
margin analysis
• extinction ratio measurements with accuracy and
repeatability
• eye measurements: crossing %, eye height and width,
‘1’ and ‘0’ levels, jitter, rise or fall times and more
The key to accurate measurements of lightwave
communications waveforms is the optical receiver.
The 86100C has a broad range of precision receivers
integrated within the instrument.
• Built-in photodiodes, with flat frequency responses,
yield the highest waveform fidelity. This provides high
accuracy for extinction ratio measurements.

• Standards-based transmitter compliance measurements
require filtered responses. The 86100C has a broad
range of filter combinations. Filters can be automatically
and repeatably switched in or out of the measurement
channel remotely over GPIB or with a front panel
button. The frequency response of the entire
measurement path is calibrated, and will maintain
its performance over long-term usage.
• The integrated optical receiver provides a calibrated
optical channel. With the accurate optical receiver
built into the module, optical signals are accurately
measured and displayed in optical power units.
Switches or couplers are not required for an average
power measurement. Signal routing is simplified and
signal strength is maintained.
Eye diagram mask testing
The 86100C provides efficient, high-throughput
waveform compliance testing with a suite of standards
based eye-diagram masks. The test process has been
streamlined into a minimum number of keystrokes for
testing at industry standard data rates.

Other eye-diagram
masks are easily
created through scaling
those listed at left. In
addition, mask editing
allows for new masks
either by editing
existing masks, or
creating new masks
from scratch. A new
mask can also be
created or modified on
an external PC using a
text editor such as
Notepad, then can be
transferred to the
instrument’s hard
drive using LAN or
the A: drive.
Perform these mask
conformance tests
with convenient
user-definable measurement conditions, such as mask
margins for guardband testing, number of waveforms
tested, and stop/limit actions.
Eyeline Mode
Eyeline Mode is a new feature only available in the
86100C that provides insight into the effects of specific
bit transitions within a data pattern. The unique view
assists diagnosis of device or system failures do to
specific transitions or sets of transitions within a
pattern. When combined with mask limit tests, Eyeline
Mode can quickly isolate the specific bit that caused a
mask violation.
Eyeline Mode uses PatternLock triggering to build up an
eye diagram from samples taken sequentially through
the data pattern. This maintains a specific timing
relationship between samples and allows Eyeline Mode
to draw the eye based on specific bit trajectories.
Effects of specific bit transitions can be investigated,
and averaging can be used with the eye diagram.
Traditional triggering methods on an equivalent time
sampling scope are quite effective at generating eye
diagrams. However, these eye diagrams are made up of
samples whose timing relationship to the data pattern is
effectively random, so a given eye will be made up of
samples from many different bits in the pattern taken
with no specific timing order. The result is that
amplitude versus time trajectories of specific bits in
the pattern are not visible. Also, averaging of the eye
diagram is not valid, as the randomly related samples
will effectively average to zero.
Measurement speed
In manufacturing, it is a battle to continually reduce the
cost per test. Solution: Fast PC-based processors, resulting
in high measurement throughput and reduced test time.

Built-in information system
Clock recovery loop bandwidth
The 86100C has a contextsensitive on-line manual
providing immediate answers
to your questions about using
the instrument. Links on the
measurement screen take you
directly to the information you
need including algorithms for
all of the measurements. The on-line
manual includes technical
specifications of the mainframe and
plug-in modules. It also provides
useful information such as the
mainframe serial number, module
serial numbers, firmware revision
and date, and hard disk free space.
There is no need for a large paper
manual consuming your shelf space.
The Agilent clock recovery modules
have two loop bandwidth settings.
Loop bandwidth is very important
in determining the accuracy of your
waveform when measuring jitter, as
well as testing for compliance.
• Narrow loop bandwidth provides
a clean system clock for accurate
jitter measurements
• Wide loop bandwidth in some
applications is specified in the
standards for compliance testing.
It allows the recovered clock to
track the data and is useful for
extracting a signal that may have
propagated through a complex
network and have large amounts of
jitter. While this obviously negates
any ability to quantify the jitter, it
does allow other parameters of an
eye to be measured.
File sharing and storage
Use the internal 40 GB hard drive to
store instrument setups, waveforms,
or screen images. A 64MB USB
memory stick is included with the
mainframe. Combined with the USB
port on the front panel this provides
for quick and easy file transfer.
Images can be stored in formats
easily imported into various
programs for documentation and
further analysis. LAN interface is
also available for network file
management and printing. An
external USB CD-RW drive is
included with the mainframe. This
enables easy installation of software
applications as well as storage of
large amounts of data.
Powerful display modes
Use gray scale and color graded trace
displays to gain insight into device
behavior. Waveform densities are
mapped to color or easy-to-interpret
gray shades. These are infinite
persistence modes where shading
differentiates the number of times
data in any individual screen pixel
has been acquired.
Internal triggering
through clock recovery
Typically an external timing
reference is used to synchronize the
oscilloscope to the test signal. In
cases where a trigger signal is not
available, clock recovery modules are
available to derive a timing reference
directly from the waveform to be
measured. The Agilent 8349XA series
of clock recovery modules are
available for electrical, multimode
optical, and single-mode optical
input signals. All 8349XA modules
have excellent jitter performance to
ensure accurate measurements. Each
clock recovery module is designed to
synchronize to a variety of common
transmission rates.
Note: When using recovered clocks
for triggering, the amount of jitter
observed will depend on the loop
bandwidth. As the loop bandwidth
increases, more jitter is “tracked
out” by the clock recovery resulting
in less observed jitter. This is
desired by many standards, but
it is important in a measurement
environment to understand the
effect that the clock recovery has on
the quantity of jitter being measured.
7
Waveform autoscaling
Autoscaling provides quick horizontal and vertical scaling
of both pulse and eye-diagram (RZ and NRZ) waveforms.
Time domain reflectometery/time domain
transmission (TDR/TDT)
High-speed design starts with the physical structure.
The transmission and reflection properties of electrical
channels and components must be characterized to
ensure sufficient signal integrity. Reflections and signal
distortions must be kept at a minimum. Use TDR and
TDT to optimize microstrip lines, PC board traces, SMA
edge launchers and coaxial cables.
Calibration techniques, unique to the 86100C, provide
highest precision by removing cabling and fixturing
effects from the measurement results. Translation of
TDR data to complete single-ended, differential, and
mixed mode S-parameters are available through the
N1930A Physical Layer Test System software. Higher
two-event resolution and ultra high-speed impedance
measurements are facilitated through TDR pulse
enhancers from Picosecond Pulse Labs1.
Gated triggering
Trigger gating port allows easy external control of data
acquisition for circulating loop or burst-data
experiments. Use TTL-compatible signals to control
when the instrument does and does not acquire data.
Easier calibrations
Calibrating your instrument has been simplified by
placing all the performance level indicators and
calibration procedures in a single high-level location.
This provides greater confidence in the measurements
made and saves time in maintaining equipment.

Stimulus response testing
Using the Agilent N490XA Serial BERT
Error performance analysis represents an essential part
of digital transmission test. The Agilent 86100C and
N490XA Serial BERT have similar user interfaces and
together create a powerful test solution.
Transitioning from the Agilent 83480A and
86100A/B to the 86100C
While the 86100C has powerful new functionality that
its predecessors don’t have, it has been designed to
maintain compatibility with the Agilent 86100A, 86100B
and Agilent 83480A digital communications analyzers
and Agilent 54750A wide-bandwidth oscilloscope. All
modules used in the Agilent 86100A/B, 83480A and
54750A can also be used in the 86100C. The remote
programming command set for the 86100C has been
designed so that code written for the 86100A or 86100B
will work directly. Some code modifications are required
when transitioning from the 83480A and 54750A, but
the command set is designed to minimize the level of
effort required.
Lowest intrinsic jitter
The patented 86107A precision
timebase reference module represents
one of the most significant
improvements in wide-bandwidth
sampling oscilloscopes in over a
decade. Jitter performance has
been reduced by almost an order
of magnitude to 200 fs RMS.
Oscilloscope jitter is virtually
eliminated! The reduced jitter of the
86107A precision timebase module
allows you to measure the true jitter
of your signal. When using the
86107A, the minimum timebase
resolution for oscilloscope and
eye/mask displays is 500 fs/division,
rather than 2 ps/div with the
standard timebase.
The standard timebase of the
86100C has very low intrinsic
jitter compared to other advanced
waveform analysis solutions.
However, for users who need the
absolute best sensitivity for their
jitter measurements, the 86107A
provides the ultimate timebase
performance. Using the 86107A
with Jitter Mode requires the
Option 101 Advanced Waveform
Analysis software package. Jitter
measurements with the 86107A are
targeted at users who are trying to
accurately measure very low levels
of jitter and need to minimize the
jitter contribution of the scope.
The 86107A requires an electrical
reference clock that is synchronous
with the signal under test. For
specific requirements of the clock
signal, see the 86107A specifications
on page 11.
Accurate views of your
40 Gb/s waveforms
When developing 40 Gb/s devices,
even a small amount of inherent
scope jitter can become significant
since 40 Gb/s waveforms only have
a bit period of 25 ps. Scope jitter
of 1ps RMS can result in 6 to 9 ps
of peak-to-peak jitter, causing
eye closure even if your signal is
jitter-free. The Agilent 86107A
reduces the intrinsic jitter of 86100
family mainframes to the levels
necessary to make quality waveform
measurements on 40 Gb/s signals.
The same 40 GHz sinewave
captured using current DCA (top)
and now with 86107A precision
timebase module (bottom).
Meeting your growing need
for more bandwidth
Today’s communication signals have
significant frequency content well
beyond an oscilloscope’s 3-dB
bandwidth. A high-bandwidth scope
does not alone guarantee an accurate
representation of your waveform.
Careful design of the scope’s
frequency response (both amplitude
and phase) minimizes distortion
such as overshoot and ringing.
The Agilent 86116A, 86116B and
86109B are plug-in modules that
include an integrated optical
receiver designed to provide the
optimum in bandwidth, sensitivity,
and waveform fidelity. The 86116B
extends the bandwidth of the
86100C infiniium DCA-J to 80 GHz
electrical, 65 GHz optical in the
1550 nm wavelength band. The
86116A covers the 1300 nm and
1550 nm wavelength bands with
63 GHz of electrical bandwidth and
53 GHz of optical bandwidth. The
86109B is an economical solution
with 50 GHz electrical and 40 GHz
optical bandwidth. You can build
the premier solution for 40 Gb/s
waveform analysis around the 86100
mainframe that you already own.
Performing return-to-zero
(RZ) waveform measurements

RZ measurements are built-in for

1 The freerun trigger mode internally generates an asynchronous trigger that allows viewing the sampled signal amplitude without an external trigger signal but provides no timing information. Freerun is useful in
troubleshooting external trigger problems.
2 The sampled input signal timing is recreated by using an externally supplied trigger signal that is synchronous with the sampled signal input.
3 The DC to 100 MHz mode is used to minimize the effect of high frequency signals or noise on a low frequency trigger signal.
4 Measured at 2.5 GHz with the triggering level adjusted for optimum trigger.
5 High Sensitivity Hysteresis Mode improves the high frequency trigger sensitivity but is not recommended when using noisy, low frequency signals that may result in false triggers without normal hysteresis enabled.

Module overview
Optical/electrical modules
Dual electrical modules
750-860 nm
86112A has two low-noise electrical channels with
20 GHz of bandwidth.
The 86101A, 86102A and 86102U modules support
waveform compliance testing of short wavelength signals
with up to 15 GHz of optical bandwidth. Each module
also has an electrical channel with 20 GHz of bandwidth.
1000–1600 nm
< 20 GHz Optical and Electrical Channels:
The 86103A, 86103B, and 86105B modules are optimized
for testing long wavelength signals with up to 18 GHz of
optical bandwidth. Each module also has an electrical
channel with 20 GHz of bandwidth.
The 86105B provides the best pulse fidelity, good
sensitivity, and the most data rate flexibility of any
DCA plug-in module. It is the recommended module
for 10 Gb/s compliance applications. The 86103A and
86103B are recommended when sensitivity is the
dominant requirement, as their amplified O/E
converters provide the best sensitivity.
20 to 40 GHz Optical and Electrical Channels:
86117A has two electrical channels with up to 50 GHz
of bandwidth ideal for testing signals up 10 Gb/s.
86118A has two electrical channels, each housed in a
compact remote sampling head, attached to the module
with separate light weight cables. With over 70 GHz of
bandwidth, this module is intended for high bit rate
applications where signal fidelity is crucial.
Clock recovery modules
This range of clock recovery modules is designed to
provide a trigger signal for the infiniium DCA-J when
no clock is present. The different modules are targeted
at different applications based on data rate and
transmission media (electrical, optical, or both).
The 83491A is an electrical module. It works for rates up
to 2.5 Gb/s.
The 83492A works for optical signals and has multimode
inputs, one working over the 750 to 860 nm range, the
other 1000 to 1600 nm.
The 86106B has 28 GHz of optical bandwidth with
multiple 10Gb/s compliance filters, and has an electrical
channel with 40 GHz of bandwidth.
The 83493A and 83494A work with single-mode input,
1000 to 1600 nm. The 83493A works for various rates up
to 2.5 Gb/s. The 83494A works for various rates up
to 10 Gb/s.
40 GHz and Greater Optical and Electrical Channels:
The 83495A works for optical and electrical signals and
has either multimode (750 to 860 nm) or single mode
(1000 to 1600 nm) inputs. It operates over a continuous
range of rates from 9.95 Gb/s to 11.3 Gb/s.
The 86109B and 86116A are optimized for testing 40 Gb/s
signals. The 86109B has an optical channel with 40 GHz
of bandwidth and an electrical channel with 50 GHz of
bandwidth. The 86116A has more than 50 GHz of optical
bandwidth and 60 GHz of electrical bandwidth. The
86116B is the widest bandwidth optical module with
more than 65 GHz optical (1550nm band only) and 80 GHz
electrical bandwidth.

Agilent Technologies’ Test and Measurement
Support, Services, and Assistance
Agilent Technologies aims to maximize the value
you receive, while minimizing your risk and
problems. We strive to ensure that you get the
test and measurement capabilities you paid for
and obtain the support you need. Our extensive
support resources and services can help you
choose the right Agilent products for your
applications and apply them successfully. Every
instrument and system we sell has a global
warranty. Support is available for at least five
years beyond the production life of the product.
Two concepts underlie Agilent’s overall support
policy: “Our Promise” and “Your Advantage.”
Our Promise
Our Promise means your Agilent test and
measurement equipment will meet its advertised
performance and functionality. When you are
choosing new equipment, we will help you
with product information, including realistic
performance specifications and practical
recommendations from experienced test engineers.
When you use Agilent equipment, we can verify
that it works properly, help with product operation,
and provide basic measurement assistance for
the use of specified capabilities, at no extra cost º
Your Advantage
Your Advantage means that Agilent offers
a wide range of additional expert test and
measurement services, which you can purchase
according to your unique technical and business
needs. Solve problems efficiently and gain a
competitive edge by contracting with us for
calibration, extra-cost upgrades, out-of-warranty
repairs, and onsite education and training, as well
as design, system integration, project management,
and other professional engineering services.
Experienced Agilent engineers and technicians
worldwide can help you maximize your productivity,
optimize the return on investment of your Agilent
instruments and systems, and obtain dependable
measurement accuracy for the life of those products.
