Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced what it described as the “the industry’s first portable, optical modulation analyzer with a laptop-size screen” for 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet.

The N4392A analyzer is designed for engineers who need to analyze complex modulated optical signals during development and manufacturing of 40/100GbE coherent transmitters and receivers.

“The N4392A enables engineers to characterize components like in-phase quadrature modulators and integrated coherent receivers designed according to industry standards for 100GbE coherent transmission,” Agilent said in a release. “The integrated design significantly accelerates setup and eliminates configuration effort so users can focus on design challenges.”

Built-in performance verification and recalibration routines deliver high- confidence test results and extend the recommended recalibration period, improving uptime and lowering the cost of ownership, it added.
