100G Optical and Electrical Tx/Rx

Tektronix provides comprehensive Tx & Rx testing support for 100G standards along with testing guidance for both NRZ and PAM4 signaling as well as Complex Coherent Modulation formats. Tektronix Test Instrumentation will get your team ready to tackle the next wave of datacom technologies.

  • DPO70000SX Series Real Time Oscilloscopes offer the ability to efficiently prove-out your technology advances and rapidly de-bug and validate 100G electrical technology standards. Clarify your 100G design's performance with an industry-low noise floor and high sample rate.
    • NEW! With the DPO7OE1 Optical Probe for the MSO/DPO70000 scopes you can easily troubleshoot your optical devices by adding powerful debug capabilities: software clock recovery for PAM4 and NRZ, triggering, error detection, and capture time correlated or contiguous acquisition of a signal.
  • DSA8300 Series Sampling Oscilloscopes are suitable for accurate characterization of optical transmitter performance for major single-mode optical standards using industry leading built-in optical reference receivers with very low OSNR.
    • NEW! The 80C17 and 80C18 Optical Modules for the DSA8300 provide the industry's highest mask test sensitivity and lowest optical noise along with new features that increase production capacity and improve yield for current 100G designs moving into production.
  • CR286A Clock recovery instruments support most 100Gbp/s standards and work in concert with the Tektronix Sampling Scopes and BERT’s to deliver a stable clock for accurate timing measurement analysis.
  • BERTScope BSA Series Bit Error Rate Testers provide long pattern generation of PRBS signals along with very accurate BER measurement results and deep, root-cause analysis.
