OM4000 software option expands multi-carrier test support

Tektronix has recently rolled out a new software option for the OM4000 optical modulation analyser series. The latest option offers an automated test support for multi-carrier coherent optical modulation, including 400G super channels.

Aimed at advancing multi-carrier modulation methodologies as new standards emerge, the software allows users to define multi-carrier variables, such as carrier count, carrier spacing, and modulation format.

Once the variables are entered into a simple table, the software automatically steps through each carrier, setting up the local oscillator and measurement parameters based on the information in the table. It also provides compiled carrier measurement results and multi-carrier visualisation for integrated analysis.

The software is available as Option MCS on the OM4106D coherent lightwave signal analyser and OM1106 coherent lightwave signal analyser software. Tightly integrated with the company's DPO70000D series 33GHz oscilloscopes, the OM4106D uses coherent detection to acquire fibre signals carrying up to 240Gbit/s per wavelength.

Option MCS software costs $8800 and operates on new and existing OM4106D systems.

Further information regarding the OM4000 can be found here.
