More

Coherent Solutions’ IQABC with its advanced ABC (Automatic Bias Control) algorithm, accurately and reliably controls and optimizes all the modulator bias points regardless of the modulation format or pattern. Now you just need to hit the AUTO button and focus on your research without worrying if your modulator is biased correctly.

Optimizing DC bias points of an IQ modulator is no trivial task. There are six different Mach-Zehnder structures inside one dual polarization IQ modulator, all simultaneously influencing the properties of a single optical signal. Trying to optimize bias points using just the intensity measurement of the optical signal is time consuming, inaccurate and it requires a lot of knowledge and experience.

With its robust and adaptive ABC algorithm, the IQABC will find optimal bias points and maintain optimization against any bias drifts or changes to the driving signal.

More Product Information

Coherent Solutions - IQReceiver™ – High Performance Coherent Optical Receiver
  • High-performance, low-noise coherent receiver
    • IQReceiver is designed and built using the highest-performing discrete fiber optic components to provide superior fidelity measurement of coherently modulated signals. To minimize noise, IQReceiver does not use a transimpedance amplifier (TIA), a component often found in commercially available ICRs.
  • Dual polarization measurement
    • IQReceiver houses polarization selective hardware to characterize polarization multiplexed signals. LO input, signal output and internal laser outputs all use polarization maintaining (PM) fiber for the highest versatility.
  • Four single-ended outputs
    • Designed to be used with any real-time oscilloscopes with sufficient bandwidth and sampling rate, the single-ended outputs make it convenient to pair with the four input channels of most oscilloscopes. In high-bandwidth oscilloscope configurations where there are only two channels per unit, IQReceiver’s slim profile and wide footprint enable it to be placed between multiple oscilloscope units.
  • Built-in narrow linewidth tunable laser
    • IQReceiver comes with a built-in narrow 25 KHz instantaneous linewidth laser, making it perfect for coherent modulation formats that require high phase stability.
  • 19 inch rack mountable
    • IQReceiver can be paired with the rack mount brackets for easy mounting in any 19 inch rack.
