The MPC-202 is an advanced Multifunction Polarization Controller specially designed to meet the requirements of coherent receiver performance tests.
It combines General Photonics’ award winning PolaRite™ II/III polarization controller with proprietary polarization control algorithms to achieve a wide range of polarization control functionalities, including high speed quasi-uniform rate polarization scrambling, random-rate polarization scrambling with Rayleigh rate distribution, discrete-state polarization scrambling with high slew rate, sine, square, and triangle-wave SOP modulation, and manual polarization control functions.
The MPC-203 is a High Speed Multifunction Polarization Controller specially designed to meet the high SOP scrambling requirements needed for stress testing coherent receiver’s polarization tracking performance.
It combines General Photonics’ award winning PolaRite™ II/III polarization controller with proprietary polarization control algorithms to achieve a wide range of polarization control functionalities, including variable high speed polarization scrambling up to 400,000 revolutions/s.
Unlike other high speed polarization scramblers found in the market, this all-fiber, pass-through fiber design comes with the lowest IL, PDL, PMD and activation loss
MPC-203 – High Speed Multifunction Polarization Controller
High speed fiber optic transceivers, including those deploying coherent detection technology for 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s data transmission, must meet stringent PDL tolerance specifications. In addition, the PDL tracking speed and response time of the PDL mitigation algorithm of a coherent detection receiver must be quantified.
The PDLE-101 is specially designed for such PDL-related tests. This PDL source/ emulator can generate individual PDL values between 0 dB and 20 dB, with a resolution of 0.1 dB for PDL tolerance testing.
It can also generate variable PDL with user defined range, waveform, and speed for PDL tracking speed and recovery time tests.
PDLE-101 – PDL Emulator
The PMD-1000 is a flexible, digital PMD source that deterministically generates precise 1st order PMD up to 180 ps and 2nd order PMD up to 8100 ps2. Its quasi-continuous operation mode enables independent generation of first order and wavelength independent second order PMD for uniform coverage of the PMD space.
The PMD-1000 uses high speed ternary magneto optic crystals to generate PMD. The PMD switching time is as little as one millisecond, making the PMD-1000 the fastest PMD generator on the market.
