Tektronix and TE SubCom collaborate on optical modulation analysis
For TE SubCom’s engineers working in the fields of optical modulation analysis and advanced research, these latest DPO70000SX low-profile oscilloscopes provide a scalable multi-unit configuration for ultra-high frequency signal fidelity needed in optical submarine network designs.
With optical speeds already in the 100s of Gbps range and research efforts working to achieve Tbps speeds, optical communications design is one of the main applications demanding higher-speed test and measurement instrumentation solutions, including the ability to synchronize multiple high-performance oscilloscopes.
Taking advantage of the latest IBM 9HP SiGe process combined with ATI technology, the DPO70000SX 70 GHz oscilloscopes provide a superior method of extending real time oscilloscope bandwidth while maintaining the highest signal fidelity and lowest noise level.
"The race to deploy faster optical communications systems starts with companies like TE SubCom," said Brian Reich, general manager, Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix. "With our new oscilloscopes and ATI technology, Tektronix is happy to help move the industry forward with such a solid partner."
To meet growing bandwidth needs, TE SubCom is investing in new technologies that can grow network capacity. "Our System Research team continues to push the limits on the transmission capacity per optical channel and the total capacity on transoceanic length cables –— this body of work requires state-of-the-art laboratory equipment that has very large electrical bandwidth," says Neal Bergano, vice president of R&D and CTO of TE SubCom.
