CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y. -– LeCroy Corporation, designer of the world’s fastest (30 GHz) real-time oscilloscope, and Optametra, a leading supplier of coherent lightwave signal analyzers, will showcase their combined test solution at the OFC/NFOEC Exposition, Booth 1406, San Diego from March 23 to 25.

LeCroy’s WaveMaster 830Zi, a 30 GHz real-time oscilloscope, has already been used to measure 224 Gb/s capability using 56 Gb/s per tributary polarization multiplexed quadrature phase shift keying (PM-QPSK) signals. This is a significant step towards accelerating the availability of 200G transmission technology and beyond for ultra long haul Dense Waveform Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks.

By integrating the capability of the 30 GHz Optametra OM4106B Coherent Lightwave Signal Analyzer with the real-time 30 GHz bandwidth of the LeCroy WaveMaster 830Zi oscilloscope, the combined instruments offer the highest real-time bandwidth for signal analysis in ultra-long-haul fiber telecommunications. Optametra’s software operates within the LeCroy oscilloscope permitting access to all variables in the analysis via Matlab, and providing users with an excellent platform for developing and testing proprietary algorithms including Chromatic Dispersion (CD) compensation, Polarization Multiplex Distortion (PMD) compensation, new proprietary modulation schemes, pass-fail criteria, or any user-defined algorithm.
