Teledyne LeCroy, in conjunction with Coherent Solutions (formerly Southern Photonics), announces the culmination of development work to produce a 45GHz Optical Modulation Analyzer − the highest real-time bandwidth available in the market.
The system is capable of testing DP-QPSK and DP-16-QAM optical signals at speeds up to 85GBaud. This new product will be exhibited at OFC/NFOEC 2013 in Anaheim, California, and is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2013. Field trials will begin after OFC/NFOEC.
The Optical Modulation Analyzer (OMA) consists of an IQ-RT45 Coherent Optical Receiver rated to 45GHz and developed by Coherent Solutions, a LabMaster 10 Zi oscilloscope with available bandwidths up to 65GHz, and proprietary Optical Modulation Analysis software. These OMAs also provide a dynamic calibration capability to enable the LabMaster 10 Zi real-time oscilloscope to be disconnected from the IQ-RT45 Coherent Optical Receiver and used for other electrical validation and testing without requiring a factory re-calibration.
