Telecom Lead America: Tektronix has announced
enhancements in its OM4000 Series Optical Modulation Analyzer solutions.
The analyzer can now coerce the DSA8300 Digital Sampling
Oscilloscope to perform analysis on PM-QPSK, QAM, and other
The company said that its OM4000 Series Optical
Modulation Analyzer can perform analysis with higher vertical resolution
than real-time based solutions at lower total system cost.
With this enhancement to the OM4000 Series, the company
said that it is meeting needs of cost-saving flexibility, higher vertical resolution
and future-proof levels of measurement bandwidth.
“As the worldwide demand for bandwidth continues to
grow at a rapid pace, our customers are being asked to find ways to increase
the efficiency, data rates and reliability of optical network equipment while
at the same time reducing cost,” said Brian Reich, general manager,
Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix.
With this enhancement to the OM4000, the company offers
optical networking designers and manufacturers the flexibility to choose
between real-time and equivalent-time acquisition systems to suit their
While paired with the DSA8300, the company said that its
OM4000 is perfect for network equipment manufacturers and designers who require
higher vertical resolution than what can be accomplished with real-time
oscilloscopes, or who are looking to lower overall system costs.
Tektronix OM4000 Series Optical Modulation Analyzer
solutions enable efficient and accurate characterization of serial
communications in fiber at 100 Gb/s and beyond. With coherent lightwave
analysis capabilities, Tektronix provides the acquisition and display of constellation
diagrams, Q plots, polarization analysis, and source laser stability to better
understand fiber-based signal quality.
OM4000 support for the DSA8300 oscilloscope is available
for order now, with delivery starting in June.
Tektronix Test Solution lends support to Intel and the
PCI Express (PCIe) ecosystem
Recently, Tektronix announced that it provided support to
Intel and the PCI Express (PCIe) ecosystem in the testing and verification
of the new Intel XeonProcessor E5-2600 family (formerly known as Romley).
