Optical Modulation Analyzer

The Fastest Real-time OMA System in the World

Teledyne LeCroy brings you the world’s most comprehensive OMA solution, as a result of several years of collaboration with our optical specialists at Coherent Solutions.

The World’s Highest Performing Optical Modulation Analyzer System

Optical Modulation Analyzer system & IQS70 Coherent Receiver

Our IQS42 and IQS70 Coherent Optical Receivers integrate seamlessly with Teledyne LeCroy’s LabMaster 10Zi-A series of real-time oscilloscopes to provide up to 65 GHz system bandwidth for optical modulation analysis of dual-polarized signals up to 130 GBaud. The Optical-LinQ optical modulation analysis software package provides real-time calibration and control of the Coherent Optical Receiver, and a wide variety of analytical views and parameters.

Industry leading system bandwidth

The 70 GHz IQS70 Coherent Optical Receiver pairs with the LabMaster 10-65Zi-A oscilloscope to provide a system bandwidth of 65 GHz, enabling analysis of signals up to 130 GBaud symbol rate.

For lower-rate applications, the 42 GHz IQS42 Coherent Optical Receiver provides up to 72 GBaud symbol rate analysis for DP-16QAM or DP-QPSK when used with the 36 GHz LabMaster 10-36Zi-A.

Fully scalable architecture with built-in flexilbility

With optical communications advancing at a rapid pace, equipment requirements are vast and ever-changing. It is critical that an Optical Modulation Analyzer system be scalable to address tomorrow’s modulation formats and data rates. Rather than a monolithic, restrictive instrument, the Teledyne LeCroy OMA solution is a set of building blocks that can be easily upgraded and supplemented to address future test challenges.

Seamless System Architecture

The Teledyne LeCroy IQS Coherent Optical Receivers leverage a system architecture that allows pairing of the coherent optical receiver with any compatible Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope without any factory calibration. All required calibrations are built into Coherent Receiver and performed at the time of measurement. This architecture also enables the easiest upgrade path in the industry – add an additional or faster acquisition module to the oscilloscope, connect the IQS receiver, and resume analysis!

Seamless Multi-Module Configuration

Teledyne LeCroy’s ChannelSync architecture ensures superior timing accuracy, by design. Using a single 10 GHz distributed clock for all acquisition modules enables the lowest jitter between all channels, the simplest integration and connection and the highest confidence in results. The single oscilloscope display gives easy access to all channels and analysis results, regardless of the number of acquisition modules.

Seamless Software Integration

Optical-LinQ is an intuitive and fully integrated software package for analysis of optically modulated signals. It runs entirely within the user interface of the LabMaster 10Zi-A. No other OMA on the market offers such integrated control of both oscilloscope and coherent receiver. Optical-LinQ provides fully automated control of the IQS receiver, phase recovery algorithms, polarization demultiplexing, as well as an exhaustive number of modulation analysis displays and parameters.
