The Tektronix 80C12B optical sampling module is a broad wavelength (700 to 1650 nm) multirate optical sampling module providing telecom and datacom testing for standards from 155 Mb/s to 11.4 Gb/s.
This highly flexible 80C12B module can be configured to support a wide variety of 10 Gb/s applications, lower data rate applications (155 Mb/s to 7.4 Gb/s), or a combination of 10G and lower data rate standards. The low data rate applications include: Telecom applications from 155 to 2666 Mb/s, 1G, 2G, and 4G Fibre Channel, multilane standards such as 10GBASE-X4 and 4-Lane 10 Gb/s Fibre Channel, and Infiniband SDR and DDR rates. The supported 10 Gb/s application includes both datacom and telecom standards.
The supported 10 Gb/s datacom applications include 10GbE, 40GbE-R4, 100GbE-SR10 applications at 9.953, 10.3125, 11.0957 Gb/s and 10G Fibre Channel applications at 10.51875 Gb/s and 11.317 Gb/s. The 80C12B also provides telecom rate testing at 9.953, 10.664, and 10.709 Gb/s.
With its amplified O/E converter design, this module provides excellent signal-to-noise performance and high optical sensitivity, allowing users to examine low-power optical signals. The 80C12B provides an electrical clock recovery output (AC coupled) to beyond 12 Gb/s data rates, which is compatible with the CR125A-HS or 80A05 (sold separately).
The Tektronix 80C12B is available for rent or lease at TRS-RenTelco. We have an experienced team of metrologists and technicians that calibrates every product to stringent standards in our 50 GHz ANSI/NCSL Z540-1 compliant laboratory. Contact us to know more or request a quote today.
