Keysight launched the 256 GSa/s M8199B Arbitrary Waveform Generator at ECOC 2022

Stand at Virtual Catch Up

12th October 2022

The M8199B is an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) which brings optical research to the next level. With analog bandwidth exceeding 80 GHz and sampling rate up to 256 GSa/s, it provides research engineers the speed, bandwidth, precision, and flexibility to meet the challenges of next-generation applications, allowing data transmission of >400 Gb/s/lane in intensity-modulation/direct-detect (IM/DD) and of >1.6 Tbit/s/carrier in coherent optical communications.

At ECOC, the M8199B AWG was involved in two breakthrough records: the highest symbol rate of 260 GBaud ever achieved in coherent optical transmissions and the highest net bitrate of >2 Tbit/s/carrier ever transmitted over standard single-mode fiber.
