Yenista Optics a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment releases two new test instruments and upgrades its Optical Spectrum Analyzer with dedicated modes to test EDFA’s and PON network, burst signals. The new instruments are a Passive Component Tester operating from 1240 to 1680 nm and a range of bandwidth adjustable Tunable Filters.
The CT400 Passive Component Tester combines with Yenista’s tunable lasers to create a complete swept-wavelength measurement system. It has a 1 pm wavelength resolution and 5 pm wavelength accuracy. A single wavelength sweep achieves a 65 dB dynamic range with a typical measurement time of 3.5 seconds. Models are available to cover any wavelength in the 1240 to 1680 nm range. The CT400 can also be integrated with external power or current meters to enable characterization of both high port count devices and integrated silicon photonic components.
The new XTA-50 Tunable Filter builds on Yenista’s lead in tunable filter technology. It provides a new touch screen user interface and Ethernet communication. The XTA-50 is available in four models covering the O, S, C and L wavelength bands and with bandwidths from 32 pm (4 GHz) to 5 nm.
Yenista released its OSA20 Optical Spectrum Analyzer in March this year. Additional functions to measure the Gain and Noise Figure of optical amplifiers (EDFA’s) have now been added. The OSA20 has the highest optical rejection ratio (ORR) of any grating based instrument a parameter which enables accurate Noise Figure measurements even with closely spaced DWDM signals. A dedicated “burst signal” mode has also been added to accurately measure the spectrum in PON networks irrespective of duty cycle (1 to 100%).
Yenista Optics a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment is pleased to announce the opening of a Sales Support and Repair Center in Newbury Park, California. The office will support the growing demand for its test equipment from semiconductor manufacturers developing silicon photonic technologies as well as the DWDM telecom industry.
Yenista is now well known for its Tunable Lasers, Tunable Filters and its optical component test systems. Its latest product, an Optical Spectrum Analyzer has been a game changer; providing extremely fast, high resolution analysis with a modern, easy to use interface.
The office will be headed by Lawrence van der Vegt who brings 25 years’ experience in the fiber optic industry. Lawrence was previously the Test Instrument Division Manager at Ando (now Yokogawa) and held senior positions in Sales & Marketing at Rifocs, a Greenlee Textron company, and 3M Photodyne. Lawrence commented "I am delighted to join Yenista. There is growth in fiber optic applications for high speed telecom and datacom markets in North America. Yenista is a respected brand and has products with real advantages. I look forward to expanding Yenista activities in this region".
The release of the v1.2 embedded software activates Ethernet and USB-B ports to control the instrument remotely, and VGA, DVI and HDMI ports for display on an external monitor. It also introduces new analysis functions like adjustable spectral resolution, which enables you to select a resolution bandwidth of 50 to 2000 pm in addition to the native bandwidth of 20 pm. This function offers customers the opportunity to choose the bandwidth according to the modulation of signals. All OSA20 customers can directly benefit from the new features by updating the embedded software available on the Yenista Optics website, from the Download Area.
