May 2001Tektronix Inc.Request Info
Two optical modules are available from Tektronix Inc. for use with its CSA8000 communications signal analyzer or TDS8000 digital sampling oscilloscope. The 80C05 and the 80C06 allow research and development of optical components and network elements for emerging OC-768 and STM-256 standards. The company says both models exhibit exceptional impulse and step response for minimal aberrations and signal distortion when acquiring 40-GB/s signals. The 80C06 delivers an optical bandwidth of 50 GHz and can handle up to 20 mW average optical power for improved signal-to-noise ratio of the acquired signal. The 80C05 provides selectable bandwidths of 40, 30 and 20 GHz, allowing users to choose optimal noise vs. bandwidth performance, and 9.953 Gb/s.
