Key performance specifications
The 8 Series Sampling Oscilloscope provides a comprehensive optical test solution for telecom and datacom applications, as well as general purpose optical component testing. The TSO8C17 and TSO8C18 optical modules provide > 30 GHz optical bandwidth, plus fully integrated Optical Reference Receivers (ORR) enabling both single mode and multi-mode conformance testing at 850 nm, 1310 nm, and 1550 nm bands.
Compliance test for 10G, 50G, 100G, 200G, and 400G IEEE 802.3TM standards such as 400GBASE-FR8, 400GBASE-DR4, and similar optical direct detect standards. The TSO820 Sampling Oscilloscope is also designed to support high speed NRZ standards such as 100 Gb Ethernet (100GBASE-LR4 or similar) that operates at a rate of 25.78125 Gb/s. Stay up-to-date on the latest standards changes by updating or adding new measurement plug-ins as they are released.
Traditional oscilloscopes perform signal acquisition and analysis in the same instrument. However, as the instrument ages, the relative processing power becomes obsolete over time. The 8 Series Sampling Oscilloscope turns this notion upside-down and features a disaggregated architecture, which separates the acquisition hardware and analysis platform. TSOVu can be installed on any Windows machine, giving users the freedom to choose the laptop readily available in the lab, a server connected to the network, or anything in between.
