8T49N242 Universal Frequency Translator Evaluation Kit Unboxing and Demonstration

Unboxing and demonstration of the 8T49N242 universal frequency translator using Timing Commander software.

The 8T49N242 is ideal for use in a wide range of equipment, including 10G/40G/100G SONET/SDH and Ethernet network line cards, wireless base station baseband units, broadcast video. carrier Ethernet switches, OTN, or in test and measurement applications. For example, the 8T49N242 can be used in GbE/10GbE/100GbE Synchronous Ethernet line card applications in order to preserve the G.8262 compliance from the Synchronous Equipment Timing Source (SETS) on the timing card.
