The new software makes it easy for photonic engineers to set up tests on their optical modulation analyzers, increasing test efficiency by cutting the number of steps in half. By automating the execution of tests, the software also minimizes testing errors.
Once the domain of research labs, 100-G transmissions are now commonly used for long-haul transmission. Consequently, more photonic engineers have to deal daily with these fast signals, using optical modulation analyzers as routinely as other engineers use oscilloscopes. As a result, instrument vendors have had to make these advanced instruments easier to use.
With this software, engineers can now set up their instruments by just entering a few parameters describing the optical input signal. Based on this information and the characteristics of the signal itself, the software determines the best settings and selects the most suitable algorithms to provide analysis results within seconds. With one more click, the status of the device under test is immediately presented, using EVM, BER or Q-factor as the indicator of quality. Additional predefined setups for 40 and 100 G further accelerate instrument setup.
Integrated hardware control offers new possibilities for setting up multiple analyzer configurations in one instrument and requires less interaction from the operator. New display options and measurements are also available and will be further extended in future releases.
