Tektronix Inc. has a new optical sampling oscilloscope module for the Tektronix DSA8200 Digital Serial Analyzer Series that delivers optical sensitivity, noise, and dynamic range performance for characterization and validation testing of 16GFC Fibre Channel and 14 GB FDR Infiniband communications standards, the company said.

Fibre Channel and Infiniband standards are designed for high-bandwidth applications and devices such as high-performance super-computing clusters, large databases, data center interconnect and migration, and solid-state disks or memory arrays. The new 80C14 module is a performance testing solution for compliance verification from 8.5 – 14.063 Gb/s.

The 80C14 optical sampling module is the newest member of the DSA8200 platform, supporting single-mode and multi-mode fiber with RMS noise performance of 3 uW, dynamic range of 19 dBand Optical sensitivity to -14 dBm providing industry’s leading signal integrity performance, Tektronix said, for increased mask margin; resulting in better yields. The new module includes optical reference receivers that are reportedly ITU and T11-compliant for evaluation and characterization of the recently completed 16GFC Fibre Channel standard and 14 GB FDR Infiniband channels.
