Teledyne LeCroy Inc., a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Inc., has demonstrated what it boasts as the world's first 100GHz real-time oscilloscope by successfully acquiring and displaying live signals at 100GHz bandwidth. According to the firm, the need for high speed oscilloscopes is vital tools in the development of high-speed digital networks, the critical backbone of the rapidly expanding cloud-based computing.

The demonstration was conducted at the research facilities of Teledyne Scientific Co. in Thousand Oaks, California. Teledyne LeCroy and Teledyne Scientific also announced they have completed the design of a jointly developed next-generation indium phosphide (InP) chip and have released the design for fabrication at Teledyne Scientific's InP foundry. The jointly developed chip is the first device in an expansive chip set planned for future generations of high speed oscilloscopes.

"We are pleased to see the 100GHz real-time oscilloscope milestone reached less than one year after the acquisition of Teledyne LeCroy," said Robert Mehrabian, chairperson, president and CEO of Teledyne. "Releasing the new InP chip in collaboration with Teledyne Scientific on the very same day illustrates the breadth of our technology expertise, and our commitment to taking high performance oscilloscopes to the next level."

InP is an advanced semiconductor process that promises higher speed devices than can be designed in other known processes.
