Reference Receiver Eyes Emerging LANs And SANs

For use with the 86100C DCA-J wideband oscilloscope mainframe, the 86116C Option 025 module unveils as the industry's first optical/electrical module to provide unfiltered bandwidth and reference receiver capabilities for 100-G Ethernet signals (implemented as four lanes each in the 25.8- to 27.7-Gb/s range) and 16x Fibre Channel (17-Gb/s single-mode variants) signals. The combination of unfiltered optical bandwidth to 45 GHz and reference receiver capabilities in one module promises to significantly accelerate design cycles and product validation. The module allows engineers to investigate, design, and verify the performance of transceivers terminating optical fibers in next-generation LANs and SANs. It operates with 1310- and 1550-nm single-mode transmitters and provides a 45-GHz optical and 93-GHz electrical unfiltered bandwidth. The 86116C Option 025 is available now at a starting price of $60,000 and the required 86100C DCA-J firmware revision 8.0 will be available in June at AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES INC., Santa Clara, CA. (800) 829-4444, item number 8212.
