A Popular Example of the System Integration We Provide:
Optical DP-16QAM generation and detection using Arbitrary Waveform Generator
Generating a multi-level coherent modulation format such as 16QAM is no trivial work. Optical modulator and electrical signal generators can have non-linear transfer functions and any electrical components used can deteriorate the signal quality with their finite frequency response. Just connecting individual instruments together will not produce a high quality optical signal.
At Coherent Solutions, we design and manufacture a full set of coherent optical communications generation and detection instruments where each instrument is characterized and optimized to generate and detect to the highest quality possible – a true Gold-standard reference instruments for all your development needs.
Setting Up a New Laboratory or Looking for a Complete Turn-key System?
With our expertise in optical signal generation and detection, we have been providing complete gold-standard optical communication systems that work – Right Out of the Box.
We characterize and calibrate all the necessary components so the optical signal you generate is highly optimized.
