Aragon Photonics and Yenista Optics, both manufacturers of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, have signed a partnership agreement to collaborate on high resolution optical spectrum analysis equipment. The companies will work together on next-generation technology, business development, sales and customer support. The first step of the cooperation is the interoperability of Aragon’s BOSA 100 high resolution optical spectrum analyzer and Yenista’s T100S-HP tunable laser.
The companies believe that putting to work the synergies of their respective technologies will enable more advanced test equipment for the demanding fiber optic test & measurement market, in particular, high spectral resolution measurements that include polarization and phase information. These measurements are of paramount importance in the characterization of complex modulation formats such as PAM4 for datacenters and PolMux QAM and PSK for Metro & Long-Haul Coherent Systems. The technology will also benefit the characterization of laser devices as side-mode spacing, SMSR and chirp can be accurately measured.
“At Aragon, we are thrilled to join forces with a great company such as Yenista in developing and promoting high-performance optical test equipment,” said Asier Villafranca, CEO of Aragon, “We believe this cooperation will bring us a step further in the photonic test & measurement industry.”
“This partnership is an important step for Yenista. It enables us to offer Hi-Res OSAs as well as classical OSAs to our customers”, stated Michiel van der Keur, CEO of Yenista Optics, “Moreover, all customers that already own our laser can directly benefit from the interoperability with Aragon’s BOSA100”.
