26.5 GHz Multimode
Lightwave Component Analyzer
The Keysight Technologies, Inc. N4376D Lightwave Component Analyzer (LCA) is the instrument of
choice to test short wavelength 10G Ethernet, Fibre Channel FCx8, FCx10 and FCx16 electro-optical
components, with up to 26.5 GHz modulation range. The N4376D also supports the test of transmit-
ter and receivers for optical computer backplanes and optical chip-to-chip connections in high speed
computers and server applications.
Modern optical transmission and datacom systems require fast, accurate and repeatable charac-
terization of the core electro-optical components. These core subcomponents (lasers, modulators
and detectors) have significant impact on the performance of the transmitter and the receiver with
respect to modulation bandwidth, jitter, gain, and distortion of the final transceiver.
