Finisar introduces 100GHz balanced photodetector

Finisar says its BPDV4121100GHz balanced detector operates at frequencies in excess of 100GHz to enable coherent signal detection and characterisation at rates up to 160Gbaud, making it the fastest detector on the market. This component will enable the next generation of optical test and measurement equipment, to help vendors develop even higher baud rate optical transmission systems, the company explains.
