Teledyne LeCroy Expands Solutions for Datacenter, Metro, and Long-Haul Optical Communications

25 GHz O/E Converter and 25 GHz Coherent Optical Receiver combine with LabMaster 10Zi-A Series Oscilloscopes for Cost-Effective, High-Performance Analysis of both Non-Coherent and Coherent Optical Links

CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y. - Teledyne LeCroy, supplier of real-time oscilloscopes up to 100GHz and other cutting edge instrumentation for the optical test and measurement space, further extends its technology leadership today with the announcement of two new products. The OE6250G O/E converter is the highest-performance optical-to-electrical converter available for real-time oscilloscopes, with 25 GHz of optical bandwidth. The IQS25 Coherent Optical Receiver joins the IQS product family as a lower-cost alternative to the high-performance IQS42 and IQS70 receivers, providing a high-value instrument for testing coherent links up to 32 Gbaud.

The OE6250G is a fully calibrated, DC-coupled 25 GHz Optical-to-Electrical converter – the first such instrument available. With a wide operating range of 800nm - 1600nm, it enables accurate acquisition of intensity-modulated optical signals on a real-time oscilloscope at baud rates of 28 Gbaud and beyond.  For such applications, real-time oscilloscopes are gaining industry favor due to their inherent advantages in analysis and debug capability; the OE6250G enables users to leverage Teledyne LeCroy's class-leading feature set, including eye, jitter and noise analysis of NRZ and PAM4 signal types, on high-baud-rate optical signals.

The OE6250G arrives in early 2017. See it in the Teledyne LeCroy booth 542 at the ECOC Exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany, on September 19-21st.

With 25 GHz of optical bandwidth, the new IQS25 Coherent Optical Receiver enables analysis of coherent signal types such as DP-QPSK and DP-16QAM to 32 Gbaud and beyond. When paired with a LabMaster 10-25Zi-A oscilloscope and Optical-LinQ software, the IQS25 offers a cost-effective solution for test and validation of 100G coherent optical links. As part of Teledyne LeCroy's industry-leading modular Optical Modulation Analyzer (OMA) family, an IQS25-based OMA system may be upgraded to 36 GHz or an industry-leading 65 GHz of system bandwidth for leading-edge applications.

Pre-integrated systems consisting of an IQS25 coherent receiver, LabMaster 10-25Zi-A oscilloscope, and Optical-LinQ software are available now, priced at approximately $250,000.
