The purpose of designing various protocols is to transfer a set of information (data) from one place to another. Serial data communication is then used to transmit the data at a high speed. At the receiver end, the transmitted data must be retrieved without losing its integrity with the accompanied timing information. This process is called clock and data recovery (CDR).
The CD-4000 enables an optimized synchronization between the BA-4000 Bit Analyzer and the EA-4000 sampling oscilloscope.
The CD-4000 Clock Recovery—along with the EA-4000 Eye Analyzer, the BA-4000 Bit Analyzer and the MA-4000 Module Analyzer—is part of EXFO’s unique solution for transceiver validation from end to end.
