BEAVERTON, Ore., March 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix, the world's leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, today announced that the DPO70000SX 70 GHz ATI Performance Oscilloscope was recognized by the 2016 Lightwave Innovation Reviews with a score of 5 out of 5 possible points.
Presented annually by Lightwave, the Lightwave Innovation Reviews program distinguishes top new products and solutions available within the optical networking industry as determined by a stellar panel of third-party judges. Judges include industry executives and analysts from a wide variety of service providers, technology developers, industry analysts, and journalists.
"On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate Tektronix on its 5 out of 5 score," said Lightwave Group Publisher Rob Stuehrk. "This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most original and innovative products in the optical networking industry. We are pleased to celebrate Tektronix's DPO70000SX for it's meaningful contribution to the optical networking industry."
The DPO70000SX 70 GHz ATI Performance Oscilloscope features the lowest-noise and highest effective bits of any ultra-high bandwidth real-time oscilloscope available on the market. The new oscilloscope incorporates a range of innovations that enable it to more effectively meet the current and future needs of engineers and scientists developing high-speed coherent optical systems or performing leading-edge research.
Key innovations delivered in the DPO70000SX ATI Performance Oscilloscope that set it apart from other ultra-high bandwidth oscilloscopes include:
- World's first 70 GHz real-time oscilloscope with Tektronix' patented Asynchronous Time Interleaving (ATI) technology that preserves signal-to-noise ratio for higher fidelity. This means that users can more accurately capture and measure their signals at higher speeds than possible with any other oscilloscope available today. The low-noise ATI architecture makes the DPO70000SX especially well-suited for validation and characterization of key standards from NRZ to PAM4.
- Impressive 200 GS/s sample rate with 5 ps/sample resolution for improved resolution and timing.
- Compact form factor that enables the instrument to be positioned very close to the device under test (DUT) while providing flexible display and control for analysis. Reducing the distance to the DUT enables shorter cable lengths, which in turn help to preserve signal fidelity at very high frequencies.
- The most scalable oscilloscope system on the market featuring Tektronix' patent pending UltraSync architecture that provides precise data synchronization and convenient operation of multi-unit systems. Precise multi-channel timing synchronization is key to meeting acquisition requirements in applications such as 100G and faster coherent optical modulation analysis.
