Anritsu India expands W1 (1.0 mm) component line

Anritsu India has expanded its W1 (1.0 mm) component line with the launch of bias tees, DC block, and semi-rigid cables that operate to 110 GHz and provide broadband frequency scalability in high-frequency device characterization and optical networking applications.

Telecom engineers will have greater confidence in their emerging high-speed designs as they can integrate new W1 components in test systems, Anritsu said.

Anritsu has a complete set of 110 GHz components for frequency and time domain use with the introduction of the W1 components strengthening its component technology leadership in mmWave frequencies.

With operable frequency of DC to 110 GHz, the new W1 components generate metrology-grade quality results with high repeatability.

These new components provide a component solution where conventional devices, including waveguide, do not exist. The W1 coaxial interface allows for a direct connection to the instrument test port, which saves time and simplifies system setup, Anritsu India said.

Engineers can use the new components as part of a test system consisting of 110 GHz vector network analyzers (VNAs), oscilloscopes and Bit Error Rate Testers (BERTs), as well as for optical transceivers, laser diodes, photodiodes and optical modulators.

Anritsu India said development of switches and routers using NRZ and PAM4 modulation schemes with 56 Gbps and 112 Gbps data rates, and 800G technology are applications, as well.
