Yokogawa Test & Measurement is set to launch an upgraded version of its optical spectrum analyser with a larger LCD screen and new test modes later this month.

The AQ6370E is an upgrade to the AQ6370D that is used to characterise lasers for optical communications, optical transceivers, and optical amplifiers.

The AQ6370E adds a high close-in dynamic range (HCDR) mode that allows users to measure a single longitudinal mode laser with a high close-in dynamic range. This is key for developing lasers and optical devices.

There is also a new side mode suppression ratio (SMSR) mode to reduce the measurement time by half, and an APP mode. APP mode provides a device under test (DUT) specific user interface that navigates the user from configuration settings to test result output, so that even users who are unfamiliar with optical spectrum analyzers can use it easily.

The analyser supports a wavelength range from 600 to 1700 nm with ±0.008 nm accuracy and a wavelength resolution of 0.02 nm.

Another new feature is a large LCD touch screen, for even easier and more intuitive everyday operation of the analyser.

The AQ6370E is planned to meet the CE marking requirements by the end of June.
