The ARB 576 is a cost-effective accurate high-end 2- or 4-port 16-bits Arbitrary Noise Generator for complex and dynamic testing of sophisticated algorithms, signal integrity, recovery and next generation broadband transmission schemes used in many different applications. The product comes with a high-end balun for unbalanced 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm to a balanced 100 Ohm for wireline networks. The ARB 576 is the perfect solution when testing MiMo transmission devices, multi-pair Vectoring in cable bundles, FSK and time division duplexing technology like 212 MHz with speed up to 2 Gbps per port, of 4 Gbps when bonding is applied. This new concept is an open platform that allows the broadband expert to load noises that are upfront created in software (Python, Matlab, csv), even including test scenario's that require use test cases with several consecutive noise generation steps: sine waves, different types of impulses, white Gaussian noises, RFI signals can be created and manipulated off-line or on the fly in real-time during testing. The ARB signals can be injected on electricity cables, different types of PoE networks as well as on remote powered telecom networks acc. ETSI 524 (Cl2) with the special purpose unique noise injector fully transparent when no noise is activated, and without loss of transmission signal under test - avoiding the use like power combiners and splitters that introduce signal loss - typically 3dB per wire, as well as impedance variations that mask the true signal behaviour.
