ID Photonics introduces automatic bias controller

Test and measurement provider ID Photonics has expanded its product range with a new type of automatic bias control (ABC) for complex multi-level coherent optical signals, jointly developed with Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute.

Unlike other products on the market, the bias control is independent of the applied RF signal (constellation), requires no manual tuning for optimal results and features a zero-noise mode for reference measurements, the company claims.
