Tektronix, a provider of measurement solutions, has enhanced its optical modulation analyzer (OMA) software. With this release, engineers can now calibrate and control multiple OMAs to acquire and analyze simultaneous data from multiple channels.
According to a company press release, included in this release is a new visual OMA setup tool that facilitates reconfiguration of the oscilloscopes and coherent receiver front-ends so that the same hardware can be used for many different applications like PAM4 research or increased channel count in DP-QPSK testing.
“This release of our OMA software will improve the multi-channel test experience for researchers developing advanced coherent optical communication and networking technologies such as QAM or DP-QPSK,” said Brian Reich, general manager, Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix. “We are reducing the cost of setting up multiple OMA systems and we’re reducing the time between receiving multiple OMA hardware systems and getting calibrated, synchronized data from those systems.”
