OE695G - Optical to Electrical Converter
These wide- band multi-mode optical-to-electrical converters are designed for measuring optical communications signals. They connect to Teledyne LeCroy real-time oscilloscopes and provide capability for physical layer signal assessment using a variety of oscilloscope tools, such as SDAIII-CompleteLinQ Serial Data Eye, Jitter, Noise and Crosstalk Analysis, mask testing, serial triggering and decoding, and other compliance and debug tools. Maximum data rate test capability is >11.317 Gb/s with reference receiver, or 12.5 Gb/s without.
Leading Specifications
  • Frequency range to 5 GHz (6 GHz optical)
  • 62.5 µm multi-mode fiber input
  • Broad wavelength range:
    • 500 nm – 870 nm (OE425 and OE525)
    • 950 nm – 1630 nm (OE455 and OE555)

These wide-band multi-mode optical to-electrical converters are designed for measuring optical communications signals. Their broad wavelength range and multimode input optics make these devices ideal for applications including Gigabit Ethernet and Fibrechannel, as well as SONET/SDH up to 2.5 Gb/s.

The OE425 and OE455 are ProBus® modules compatible with WaveProand Waverunner oscilloscopes as well as WaveMaster instruments when used with a LPA-BNC adapter.

The OE525 and OE555 are ProLink® modules compatible with WaveMaster,SDA and DDA instruments.

Universal Calibrated Reference Receivers
The O/E converters contain calibration data that can be used to create optical reference receivers for SONET/SDH (up to OC48/STM16), Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet and other optical standards. This feature is available when the O/E is used on a WaveMaster series oscilloscope. This universal reference receiver supports any data rate up to 3 GHz and remains calibrated on any channel of any WaveMaster.
