Bringing Optical Mixed-Signal Test Capabilities to PXI
Coherent Solutions for Optical Excellence
Coherent Solutions is a world-leading provider of test and measurement equipment for optical communications. They specialize in optical communication test and measurement instruments from signal generation to characterization with a range of innovative, easy-to-use modular and customized solutions supporting a mission to help engineers and scientists push the boundaries of high-speed optical communications.
PXI, or PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation, is an open specification governed by the PXI Systems Alliance (PXISA) that defines a rugged, high-performance platform optimized for test, measurement, and control. PXI combines PCI Express electrical-bus features with the rugged, modular packaging of CompactPCI and adds specialized synchronization buses. The introduction of Coherent Solutions optical PXI modules means all the benefits of a single-platform measurement system now extend to include true optical-electrical mixed signal test:
Simplify wiring and signal routing with unparalleled synchronization capability across a shared timing and triggering backplane
Capture more data with high speed data streaming from module to controller
Process more data, faster with embedded multi-core processors or remote-PC control
Save time and get to automated measurements quickly with an extensive portfolio of software for interactive and automated test and measurement
Coherent Solutions’ expanding portfolio of PXIe optical test modules bring a wide range of new mixed-signal test capabilities to the PXI platform, with many more on the horizon. The modules offer seamless integration with PXI Platform and deliver reliable and repeatable results across a wide range of optical and mixed-signal test applications.
