Keysight adds tunable laser for CWDM8 component testing
11th September 2019
The Keysight 8160xA Tunable Laser Sources cover the full wavelength range from 1240 nm to 1650 nm. All 8160xA lasers are equipped with PMF output fiber for easy alignment with photonic integrated components. The latest addition to the family, wavelength option 114 (1340 nm to 1495 nm), combined with option 113 (1240 nm to 1380 nm), enables measurements over all CWDM8 channels. More than +10 dBm output power and very low SSE levels allow for external modulation in BER testing of receiver optical subassemblies (ROSA) as well as for testing CWDM wavelength filters for 100G and 400G Ethernet standards.
