The PHABRIX Jitter / Eye Analysis Option for SxE from Leader expands the eye and jitter functions of the handheld SDI signal generator & analyzer. The option adds a full-screen jitter display plus enhancements to the eye display, including automatic measurements for both. It also adds decade filters and histograms to the SxE, improving an already-powerful tool for broadcast engineers, systems integrators, and R&D and test departments.
This not only provides a go-/no-go determination of whether the signal is in or out of SMPTE compliance, but it also can suggest to the engineer where any problems might lie. A spiky waveform on the jitter screen, for instance, could indicate power-supply noise. Vertical gain and horizontal magnification controls enable customization of the display, better to identify problems visually.
