Product description
The 82A04B Phase Reference Module extends the capability of the
DSA8300 1 Digital Serial Analyzer sampling oscilloscope mainframe by
providing extremely low jitter/low drift sample position information to
the mainframe. This sample position information is based on the phase
of a reference clock signal connected to the 82A04B input.
The benefits of using the sample position information based on a clock
signal are two-fold:
An extremely low jitter of <100 fsRMS.
The capability of a triggerless acquisition.
The typical application for the phase reference module is the acquisition
and analysis of very high speed optical and electrical signals in
high-speed computers, communication devices and systems, and similar
areas.

The 82A04B Phase Reference Module is also compatible with the DSA8200 Digital
Serial Analyzer, CSA8200 Communications Signal Analyzers, and the TDS8200 Digital
Sampling Oscilloscopes.

Getting started
The 82A04B together with the DSA8300 implements the phase
reference timebase functionality in a novel way, giving the user
the freedom to select from timebase and acquisition modes. Any
phase-reference frequency within the operating range is accommodated,
and even the advanced features, such as FrameScan®, remain available.
The separate DSP per acquisition slot architecture of the DSA8300
enables the acquisition rate in the phase reference mode to reach over
180 kS/s.

Getting started
Installing and removing the module
Refer to the host instrument documentation or the 80X01, 80X02
Electrical Sampling Module Extender Instructions for proper installation
and removal of modules and extender cables.
CAUTION. Instrument modules are extremely static sensitive. Always
ground yourself when handling modules.
The module is designed to install directly into any available
small-module compartment of the following Tektronix mainframes:
DSA8300
CSA8200, DSA8200, TDS8200
NOTE. Only one 82A04B module can be active in a mainframe at a time.
Connector care
Use extra care when attaching or removing SMA connectors. Use the
following guidelines to make proper connections:
1.
Align the connectors carefully before turning the nut.
2.
Use light finger pressure to lightly tighten the connection.
3.
Use a torque wrench to lightly tighten the nut as specified. (See
Table 1.) Use an open-end wrench to keep the body of the device
from turning.
4.
Rotate only the connector nut (not the cable) that you are tightening.
5.
Position the two wrenches within 90 degrees of each other before
applying force. (See Figure 1.)
6.
Hold the torque wrench lightly at the end of the handle.
7.
Apply downward force perpendicular to the wrench handle; this
applies torque to the connection through the wrench.
8.
Tighten the connection just to the point that the wrench breaks over.
Do not overtighten the connection.

Operating basics
Operation
The operation of the Phase Reference module is based on the acquisition
of a reference clock signal that is synchronous to the signal being
measured. This clock is a user-supplied signal (such as a clock from a
BERT), or the Clock Output of one of the DSA8300 clock recovery or
optical modules. In addition, the user can connect an external trigger
signal to the Direct Trigger input or to the Clock Input/Prescaler Trigger
input of the mainframe.
Phase Ref Free-Run. With no external trigger to the DSA8300 mainframe
needed, the 82A04B module can, together with the mainframe, create
a timebase based on the phase of the reference clock. (Effectively, the
timebase of the instrument functions as a “Phase-base” instead). The
signal displayed on the screen will therefore repeat after one period of
the reference clock. All user controls remain enabled, even while the
horizontal position has relative meaning only. The timing information
presented by the oscilloscope is based solely on the phase reference
clock frequency as entered by the user in the Input Freq field of the
Phase Ref Setup dialog box. (See page 6, Setup controls.)
Phase Ref Triggered. By providing the phase reference clock to both
the phase reference module and the Clock Input of the instrument, the
DSA8300's Advanced Trigger feature (Option ADVTRIG) can acquire
repetitive pattern data (as opposed to only eye diagrams or clock
signals) with very low jitter.
Characterize. To operate properly in either the Phase Ref Triggered or
the Phase Ref Free-Run modes, the Phase Reference module has to
first Characterize the Phase Reference signal. The signal needs to be
stable during and after the characterization. The instrument indicates
when characterization is necessary.

Operating basics
Using extender cables with the 82A04B
You can install an 80X01 (1 meter) or 80X02 (2 meter) electrical
sampling module extender cable on the 82A04B to provide correct phase
reference clock signal alignment for different sampling module setups:
Always use the 80X02 cable provided with the 82A04B when using
remote sampling modules 80E07B, 80E08B, 80E09B or 80E10B
Always use the same extender cable length to extend the 82A04B
as you use for extending supported monolithic sampling modules
(such as the 80E01, 80E03, 80E04, or 80E11X1). For example, if
you use an 80X01 extender cable with an 80E11X1, also use an
80X01 extender cable with the 82A04B.
Refer to the 80X01 and 80X02 Electrical Sampling Module Extender
Instructions (Tektronix part number 071-3206-xx) for more information
on using extender cables with modules.
NOTE. Legacy module extender cable 80N01 can be used to extend
supported sampling modules and the 82A04B. The 80N01 cable is
equivalent to the 80X02 extender cable.
