The advent of 5G, accompanied by technologies like silicon photonics and other integrated optics, has triggered the rapid transformation of the testing requirements for passive optical components. There are new things to consider now with the appearance of WDM channels spaced closer together, optical filters with sharper spectrums or high-port-count optical components. Let’s take a look how to address these parametric testing challenges.
CTP10 - Passive optical component testing platform
Unrivaled passive optical component testing platform for WDM components and photonic integrated circuits
CT440/CT440-PDL - optical component tester
Compact tester for fast and accurate characterization of passive optical components
OSA20 - optical spectrum analyzer
Fastest diffraction-grating-based instrument operating from 1250 to 1700 nm. Provides fast, accurate, high dynamic range scan. Unique touch-sensitive display with multitouch gesture control.
T100S-HP - high-power continuously tunable laser
XTA-50 - Tunable filter with adjustable bandwith
Electronically controlled. Center wavelength and bandwidth can both be set precisely and independently. Covers all key wavelengths from 1260 nm to 1650 nm and bandwidths from 32 pm (4 GHz) to 5 nm.
XTM-50 - Tunable filter with adjustable bandwidth
With the XTM-50 both center wavelength and bandwidth can be independently adjusted. It is manually controlled and versions are available covering all the key telecom wavelengths from 1260 nm to1650 nm and bandwidths from 32 pm (4 GHz) to 5 nm.
