Tektronix’ new 45GHz optical modulation analyser (OMA) is designed to help engineers develop components and equipment that support the latest 100G and next-generation 400G communications standards.
Tektronix has introduced the DPO70000SX 70GHz ATI Performance Oscilloscope, which features the lowest noise and highest effective bits of any ultra-high-bandwidth real-time oscilloscope available on the market, the company claims.
The new oscilloscope incorporates a number of innovations that enable it to more effectively meet the current and future needs of engineers and scientists developing high-speed coherent optical systems or performing leading-edge research, Tektronix says.
