Up to now there was no posibility to test short reach multimode electro-optical components right at the target wavelength of 850 nm. This new multimode Lightwave Component Analyzer enables the test of all relevant electro-optical S-parameters, like S21 and S11 or S22 under multimode conditions.
Typical applications are S-parameter tests for short reach FCx8, FCx10 and FCx16 as well as 10GbE. Beside this popular standards this LCA enables also the test of ultra short reach electro-optical components for optical computer and server backplanes as well as chip to chip connections in future high end computers.
Traceable multimode S21 charaterization right at 850nm target wavelength leads to repeatable test results.
IEEE 802.3ae compatible launched power distribution ensures application realistic test results.
Fast and accurate calibration with electrical calibration module, no need for additional optical calibration.
50um fibre and 62.5um fibre components support.
Built in average power meter.
User selectable optical transmitter output power helps to adapt to target test conditions
