Yenista upgrades OSICS optical test platform

Test and measurement company Yenista Optics has updated its popular OSICS optical test and measurement platform.  The new model provides compatibility with existing OSICS modules whilst providing a modern front panel interface together with USB and GPIB control.

OSICS is Yenista’s multi-function test platform supporting modules such as tunable lasers, DFB lasers, optical variable attenuators and optical switches. Modules can be combined to create a cost-effective test system, the company says. The front panel interface provides convenience for use in research labs, whilst the remote control via GPIB provides flexibility for automated test stations.

Yenista’s sales director, David Heard commented, “The OSICS platform is extremely popular and we have an extensive installed base. The new instrument was developed in response to customer requests; to add additional functionality whilst maintaining compatibility with existing modules.”

The platform will be displayed at the OFC 2015 exhibition in Los Angeles, California, on 24-26 March.
