Optical sampling. Unmatched performance.

With bandwidth demand growing exponentially worldwide, the transmission rates of optical networks are increasing to 40 Gbit/s and, in the near future, to 100 Gbit/s. Thanks to advanced modulation schemes, ultra-high network speeds can be achieved using existing DWDM channel spacing, while maintaining resilience to chromatic and polarization dispersion phenomena. Full characterization of this ultra-high-speed encoding represents a significant challenge. This is where EXFO’s PSO-100 Series comes in.

Based on a unique optical sampling approach, the PSO-101 and PSO-102 Optical Sampling Oscilloscopes eliminate almost all the limitations typically found in electrical sampling oscilloscopes. To do so, narrow sampling pulses open a sampling gate that generates a time-stretched version of the measured signal. The optical samples are then converted to electrical signals, which can be easily detected by low-speed electronics and digitally processed.
