Test and measurement company Agilent to launch new clock recovery solutions at OFC/NFOEC 2012


By Telecom Lead Team:Test and measurement company Agilent Technologies is
launching a new portfolio of instrumentation-grade clock recovery solutions for
optical and electrical testing of high-speed digital communications components
and systems.


The company will unveil these instrumentation-grade clock
recovery products at OFC/NFOEC 2012 in Los Angeles, March 6-8.


These solutions offer highest bandwidth and low jitter
performance at significantly lower cost than similar products.


The  Agilent  N4877A clock recovery system provides
instrumentation-grade clock extraction for electrical signals for any rate from
50 Mb/s to 32 Gb/s.


The N1070A combines the N4877A with
the N1075A optical coupler/converter to achieve optical clock
recovery on multimode signals to 16 Gb/s and single-mode signals to 32


The new clock recovery products offer residual jitter
performance as low as 100 femtoseconds rms, which increases margin in jitter
tests and minimizes degradation of results by the test system.


Instrumentation-grade clock recovery will be one of the
essential tools for the design of next-generation, high-speed digital
communications systems and components,” said Juergen Beck, general manager of
Agilent’s Digital and Photonic Test Division.


The company said that these newly launched solutions will
operate at the new industry-standard rates, and provide margin above those
rates, giving engineers important flexibility in their design and test

Agilent’s three new clock recovery products use
Bit-error-ratio testers and oscilloscopes to cover an extensive range of data
rates and technologies.


A few days back, Agilent Technologies announced that Bluetest AB supports Agilent’s PXI wireless
communications test set.


The Bluetest Reverberation Test System uses the Agilent
PXT test set to evaluate LTE devices over the air.
