Keysight 8703A Lightwave Component Analyzer

As the transmission rate or bandwidth of fiber optic systems is pushed upward, high frequency design considerations become essential. The Keysight 8703A measures each of the system elements that transmit these wide bandwidths. The lightwave component analyzer operates with a swept modulation frequency to precisely characterize how lasers, LEDs, photodiodes, and electro-optic modulators operate with a high-speed information-bearing signal similar to an RF/µW network analyzer.
