Optical signals over fibre analysis from EXFO
PSO Series Equipment
With the advent of new advanced modulation schemes that enable transmission of high-speed optical signals over fibre, research centres, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) - and even carriers - will need new test instruments to properly characterise these signals.
EXFO's well-regarded, but now discontinued, PSO-100 Series of Optical Sampling Oscilloscopes was a starting point for development of the PSO-200 Optical Modulation Analyser, an instrument that uses optical sampling technology to allow for the complete characterisation of random or repetitive digital signals up to 100 GBd.
PSO-200 Optical Modulation Analyser
- Dual-polarisation transmission compatible
- No external clock/trigger needed
- Large, high-res touchscreen for quality graphics and easy control
- Interface adapts to any data modulation scheme or user preference
Based on the recognised optical sampling approach of the PSO-100 Series Optical Sampling Oscilloscopes (see below), the PSO-200 uses an all-optical design to enable complete characterisation of waveforms and random or repetitive digital signals up to 100 GBd.
