AUCKLAND, NZ -- Southern Photonics, in collaboration with Micram, has announced the launch of a new 34GS/s Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) to be demonstrated for the first time at OFC/NFOEC 2012 Exposition in Los Angeles, California.

Co-developed by Southern Photonics and Micram, the AWG-34G is a fully integrated fast AWG system which enables researchers and engineers to generate high order complex modulation formats, such as 16QAM, at speeds of up to 136Gb/s. The AWG-34G incorporates a powerful and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that brings a new level of programming ease and flexibility to academic and industrial research labs around the world.

“Currently available bench-top AWGs simply do not have the bandwidth necessary to meet the needs of future communications systems development,” said Dr. John Harvey, CEO of Southern Photonics. “We are committed to providing communication system developers with a full suite of state-of-art tools. By leveraging Micram’s unique ultrafast VEGA signal converter technology, we are enabling researchers to generate any high speed multi-level electronic signal they require, then convert them into complex modulated optical signals using our IQ Transmitter, which we are also demonstrating at OFC.”
