Tektronix CSA8000 Communications Signal Analyzer

The Tektronix CSA8000 supports a huge and developing group of optical and electrical plug-in modules. This secluded model gives the user a chance to design the instrument with the correct highlights for their application both now and later. The accessible optical modules offer complete optical test answers for both telecom (622 Mb/s to 40 Gb/s) and datacom (Fiber Channel and Gigabit Ethernet) applications. Each optical module incorporates the greater part of the components important for communications testing, including an optical to electrical converter, an average power screen, at least one reference receiver channel, a full bandwidth path, and a low-noise electrical sampler. Furthermore, clock recuperation is accessible as a possibility for every single optical module. The electrical plug-ins incorporate an assortment of modules with bandwidths up to 50 GHz and specific highlights such as TDR. High bandwidth probes are also accessible for building an aggregate acquisition and estimation solution.

The CSA8000 is based on Tektronix's new sampling oscilloscope platform that mixes familiar MS Windows-based PC innovations with world-class waveform acquisition technology. This platform offers a wide exhibit of standard instrumentation and communication interfaces, including: GPIB, Parallel Printer Port, RS-232-C and USB Serial Ports, and an Ethernet LAN association. Also, the platform incorporates a few storage gadgets (floppy disk, removable hard drive and CD-ROM). At long last, because the framework supports an open Windows environment, new levels of data analysis should be possible specifically on the instrument utilizing commercially available software packages.
