IQTransmitter™ Coherent Modulation Transmitter

Industry Leading High Bandwidth of 40 GHz

The IQTransmitter enables quick and simple generation of phase modulated optical signals in one easy to use benchtop unit. It offers world-leading bandwidth of 40GHz, unrivalled by other commercially available coherent transmitters. Plus its unique range of customizations give you unrivalled flexibility and even greater value.


high channel densityGenerate 16QAM & more

The IQTransmitter uses high bandwidth linear RF amplifiers to enable generation of any multi-level optical modulation formats when used with RF Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWG).

tunable across C or L bandHigh-quality signal generation

With industry-leading bandwidth of up to 40 GHz, generate baud rates up to 80 GBaud. 40 GHz bandwidth is perfect for 600 Gbps signals based on 56 GBaud 64QAM modulation format.

smarter calibrationHigh performance ABC

Modulation format and data independent Automatic Bias Controller tracks and compensates for any bias drifts so you can set and forget.

 0.01pm tuning resolutionNarrow linewidth laser

The built-in tunable laser with a narrow 100 KHz linewidth and 15 dBm of output power is an ideal laser source for coherent modulation formats. You can also use your own laser if preferred.

seamless PXI integration

Dual polarization emulator

Single polarization IQTransmitter models come with a dual polarization emulator which optically multiplexes a time delayed copy of the single polarization signal.

versatileVersatile configuration

Supports full dual polarization, emulated dual polarization or single polarization.

seamless PXI integrationEffective & user-friendly GUI

IQSignal-Manager (IQSM) provides simple set up and full software control. Automatically discover compatible instruments on the Local Area Network and control the IQTransmitter from the comfort of your own desk.

seamless PXI integrationUSB and Ethernet operation

Connect with USB and/or Ethernet for simple setup and operation.

1 year warranty_60x60Product warranty

This product comes with a standard 1 year warranty. Optional 3 or 5 year extended warranties are also available.

The Ideal ‘Golden’ Optical Signal Source

Generating and controlling phase modulated optical signals is made easy with the IQTransmitter. The IQTransmitter is referred to as a ‘Golden’ reference optical signal source because of its high repeatability and reliability.

Its unrivalled high bandwidth of 40 GHz (typical) ensures high-quality optical signal generation, making it the ideal optical signal source for coherent communications applications.

One User-friendly GUI for all the Instruments

IQSignal Manager application - Complex Modulation Transmitter Software
The ‘IQSignal-Manager’ software enables simple set up and control of the IQTransmitter. IQSignal-Manager automatically discovers any compatible instrument on the Local Area Network so you can monitor and control the IQTransmitter from the comfort of your own desk.
