Fast versatile component analyser for electro-optical components

8 March 2006 Opto-Electronics

Agilent Technologies has introduced a lightwave component analyser that it says sets a new benchmark in optimised frequency-response characterisation of key photonic components. Designed for emerging applications such as passive optical networks (CATV), 10GE and 40G in high-speed telecommunications and computer networks, the Agilent N4373A LCA offers industry-leading versatility, measurement speed and reliability.

The N4373A LCA extends Agilent's portfolio with NIST-traceable opto-electrical converters at wavelengths of 850 nm (multimode), 1310 nm and 1550 nm (single-mode) for optical interfaces; and with differential and single-ended electrical interfaces for 3 GHz, 8,5 GHz, 20 GHz or even up to 67,5 GHz.

A single product solution provides analysis for all network component categories (E/O, O/E and O/O) such as laser drivers, amplifiers, lasers, transmitters, optical modulators, photodiodes and optical passive components, says Agilent.
