Tektronix Inc., the world leader in providing measurement solutions, has introduced new optical modules for its DSA8300 sampling oscilloscope. Apart from carrying traits like industry’s highest mark test sensitivity and lowest noise, these also feature increased production capacity and improved yield for current 100G designs moving into production. Besides, the company has released enhancements to its 400G test solution including IEEE Ethernet standard-driven Transmitter and Dispersion Eye Closure (TDECQ) PAM4 and other related support measurements for optical testing.
The full set of Tektronix solutions for 100G/ 400G optical characterization and validation along with new modules and capabilities will be demonstrated at the OFC Optical Networking and Communication Conference. It will continue till March 23 in Los Angeles, California.
“As 100G designs move into production, manufacturing yields become paramount,” said Brian Reich, general manager, Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix. “Our lowest inherent noise enables more confidence in test results and drives improvement in manufacturing yields on optical components and interconnects. At the same time, we continue to lead the way toward 400G with comprehensive tools and features for in-depth analysis and effective debug in a new generation of Data transmission.”

The new 80C17 and 80C18 optical modules offer mask sensitivity of -14dBm that exceeds the requirement for 28 GBd PAM4 standards. Moreover, these modules offer industry’s best noise performance at 3.9 µW with broad wavelength support. The 2-channel 80C18 also allows optical manufacturing test engineers to double the throughput and capacity. In case a device fails, Tektronix even offers analysis tools to decompose the signal content for both noise and jitter so as to aid engineers in understanding the underlying problem.
The 80C17 and 80C18 optical modules along with 400G test software enhancements are going to be available in April end, this year. As far as the pricing is concerned, the new optical modules can be availed at USD 65,000 MSRP.
