Keysight Expands Optical Front-end Solutions for Infiniium Real-time Oscilloscope

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, recently announced the new N7005A optical-to-electrical converter designed for use with Keysight´s Infiniium UXR-series of high performance real-time oscilloscopes, the company said.

This solution provides real-time analysis and debug capabilities on up to 4 channels simultaneously, offering designers new testing methodologies.

Keysight´s real-time, oscilloscope-based optical measurement tools offer unique capabilities that address these measurement challenges as well as debug and troubleshoot an optical product design, typically in the R&D design phase.

Keysight´s N7005A, which offers up to 60 GHz of optical measurement performance (O/E), used in conjunction with the company´s 70 GHz Infiniium UXR oscilloscope, offers designers end-to-end debugging capabilities that reduce time needed to debug, while simplifying overall workflow results. It also enables engineers to take advantage of the PAM4 optical measurement and deep analysis capabilities such as TDECQ (transmitter and dispersion eye closure quaternary) measurement provided by the new FlexDCA sampling oscilloscope software feature called FlexRT.

Keysight´s N7005A delivers a low-level of noise for 56-GBaud optical PAM4 measurements, enabling engineers to efficiently troubleshoot optical devices using a complete set of debug capabilities. Each N7005A O/E converter contains a measured frequency response data for an optimized correction filter. This frequency response data is used to flatten the frequency response for a more accurate measurement.
