HAMBURG, Germany -- Adaptif Photonics GmbH (www.adaptif.de) has announced the release of important upgrades to their successful A2000 Component Analyser family. These upgrades boost throughput and accuracy in combination with seamless integration into automated manufacturing systems. A new internal referencing capability greatly improves accuracy and precision for PMD/DGD, PDL and insertion loss measurements. The C and L bands can be swept within 8 seconds with an accuracy of 0.01dB for PDL and a repeatability for PMD of well below 10 femtoseconds.

Adaptif’s proprietary measurement scheme is based on the JME method, delivering accurate results even when operating in harsh environments. A great robustness against fiber movements and drifts eliminates the need for taping fiber patch cords to the table. The new A2000 units include an industrial PC with touch screen and an intuitive user interface. These new test instruments produce high throughput in production test stations, dramatically reducing test costs without compromising measurement quality.

Integration of these products into manufacturing systems is supported through all popular automation and remote control interfaces. According to Dr. Harald Rosenfeldt, Adaptif’s CTO, “These new instruments introduce a new level of performance in optical component test and verification which has not been available before.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
