Keithley Instruments Inc. has expanded its line of optical switching cards with the release of a 1 x 16 version. This addition enables the company's model 7001 and 7002 switch mainframes to control more optical signals with one instrument, typically routing a single signal to 16 devices under test or 16 instruments. The model 7090 card switches optical signals in the 1290- to 1650-nm range using single-mode fibers with FC/SPC and FC/APC connectors. Applications include automated testing of optoelectronic devices used in the construction of fiber optic networks in telecommunications as well as in tunable, transceiver and pump laser diodes and in VCSEL arrays.
