ID Photonics releases Optical Spectrum Analyzer for R&D and production applications

Neubiberg, Germany – ID Photonics, a leading test and measurement provider for coherent transmission system solutions, extends its product portfolio by an Optical Spectrum Analyzer.

The ID OSA is a versatile Optical Spectrum Analyzer for R&D and production test applications with 312MHz/2.5picometer spectral resolution across the C Band and performs a scan with full resolution within 1 second. Unlike traditional OSAs, its rugged design without any moving optical elements does not require calibration making it easily portable. The compact housing stacks in standard half size 19 Inch racks with just 1HE height for integration into test rigs.

The unit is controlled by a provided Graphical User Interface via USB or Ethernet. Automated scripts can be implemented by the SCPI style command interface.

"ID Photonics is dedicated to providing high performance test instrumentation at an affordable price to our customers. The new ID OSA uniquely blends high resolution spectral analysis capability with a fast scan rate in a rugged ultra-compact device at a very competitive price. This makes it an ideal choice for both production testing where reliability and compactness is key as well as demanding R&D applications by its paramount spectral resolution and dynamic range." said David Stahl, General Manager of ID Photonics.

The ID OSA is commercially available immediately.

The unit will be on display in a live demonstration from March 21 to 23th at the OFC 2017 exhibition in Los Angeles, booth #2113.
