Yenista unveils high-performance component test platform

Test and measurement specialist Yenista Optics has developed the CTP10, a platform for testing passive optical components such as photonic integrated circuits and wavelength-selective switches.

The CTP10 platform has been designed for heavy duty measurements in both R&D and production environments. The mainframe hosts up to 10 hot-swappable modules and can handle up to four devices under test simultaneously.

Yenista releases lasers for testing at CWDM wavelengths

France-based Yenista Optics has released a series of laser modules for testing optical components at coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) wavelengths from 1270nm to 1610nm, plus additional modules at 1625nm and 1650nm.

The CWDM modules correspond to the wavelengths used in 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s CLR4 and CWDM4 transceiver modules as well as conventional CWDM systems. The additional modules operate at supervisory channel and optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) wavelengths.
