Teledyne LeCroy to Debut New Optical Modulation Analyzer Solution at OFC/NFOEC 2013

45 GHz Optical Modulation Analyzer is Highest Real-time Bandwidth Available

Chestnut Ridge, NY, March 19, 2013 - Teledyne LeCroy, in conjunction with Coherent Solutions (formerly Southern Photonics) announces the culmination of development work to produce a 45 GHz Optical Modulation Analyzer - the highest real-time bandwidth available in the market. The system is capable of testing DP-QPSK and DP-16-QAM optical signals at speeds up to 85 GBaud. This new product will be exhibited at OFC/NFOEC 2013 in Anaheim, California, and is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2013. Field trials will begin after OFC/NFOEC.

The Optical Modulation Analyzer (OMA) consists of an IQ-RT45 Coherent Optical Receiver rated to 45 GHz and developed by Coherent Solutions, a LabMaster 10 Zi oscilloscope with available bandwidths up to 65 GHz, and proprietary Optical Modulation Analysis software. Besides a market-leading system bandwidth (45 GHz) and baud rate test capability (85 GBaud), these OMAs also provide a dynamic calibration capability to enable the LabMaster 10 Zi real-time oscilloscope to be disconnected from the IQ-RT45 Coherent Optical Receiver and used for other electrical validation and testing without requiring a factory re-calibration. This enables dual use of the oscilloscope for serial data eye diagram, jitter, noise and crosstalk analysis on NRZ electrical tributaries using Teledyne LeCroy's SDAIII-CompleteLinQ software package.

"The LabMaster 10 Zi real-time oscilloscopes support bandwidths up to 65 GHz and our proprietary ChannelSync™ architecture. This system provides the ideal platform for optical communications signal analysis" states Ken Johnson, Director of Marketing at Teledyne LeCroy. "ChannelSync provides superior channel-to-channel phase accuracy at the highest bandwidths. The seamless integration of Coherent Solutions' leading-edge coherent optical receiver with the LabMaster 10 Zi oscilloscopes delivers an OMA system that sets a new standard for capability and ease-of-use."

"We are delighted to be launching our new OEM supplier relationship with Teledyne LeCroy at OFC/NFOEC," said Dr. Andy Stevens, CEO of Coherent Solutions. "Their brand represents the high performance and innovation that we aim to deliver with our OEM solutions".

An OMA 10-36Zi System will be demonstrated at the Teledyne LeCroy booth 1447 and Coherent Solutions booth 1333 in Anaheim this week.
