Press Release Summary:
Capable of testing DP-QPSK and DP-16-QAM optical signals at speeds up to 85 GBaud, Optical Modulation Analyzer (OMA) consists of IQ-RT45 Coherent Optical Receiver rated to 45 GHz, LabMaster 10 Zi oscilloscope with available bandwidths up to 65 GHz, and software. Dynamic calibration capability enables LabMaster 10 Zi real-time oscilloscope to be disconnected from IQ-RT45 Coherent Optical Receiver and used for other electrical validation and testing without requiringÂ factory re-calibration.
Original Press Release:
Teledyne LeCroy to Debut New Optical Modulation Analyzer Solution at OFC/NFOEC 2013
45 GHz Optical Modulation Analyzer is Highest Real-time Bandwidth Available
CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y. -- Teledyne LeCroy, in conjunction with Coherent Solutions (formerly Southern Photonics) announces the culmination of development work to produce a 45 GHz 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 85 GBaud. 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 45 GHz and developed by Coherent Solutions, a LabMaster 10 Zi oscilloscope with available bandwidths up to 65 GHz, and proprietary Optical Modulation Analysis software. Besides a market-leading system bandwidth (45 GHz) and baud rate test capability (85 GBaud), 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. This enables dual use of the oscilloscope for serial data eye diagram, jitter, noise and crosstalk analysis on NRZ electrical tributaries using Teledyne LeCroy's SDAIII-CompleteLinQ software package.
"The LabMaster 10 Zi real-time oscilloscopes support bandwidths up to 65 GHz and our proprietary ChannelSync(TM) architecture. This system provides the ideal platform for optical communications signal analysis," states Ken Johnson, Director of Marketing at Teledyne LeCroy. "ChannelSync provides superior channel-to-channel phase accuracy at the highest bandwidths. The seamless integration of Coherent Solutions' leading-edge coherent optical receiver with the LabMaster 10 Zi oscilloscopes delivers an OMA system that sets a new standard for capability and ease-of-use."
"We are delighted to be launching our new OEM supplier relationship with Teledyne LeCroy at OFC/NFOEC," said Dr. Andy Stevens, CEO of Coherent Solutions. "Their brand represents the high performance and innovation that we aim to deliver with our OEM solutions."
An OMA 10-36Zi System will be demonstrated at the Teledyne LeCroy booth 1447 and Coherent Solutions booth 1333 in Anaheim this week.
