EXFO FTB-5240 1250 to 1650 nm Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) Module

The Exfo FTB-5240 is a powerful optical spectrum analyzer (OSA) designed to meet the challenges of DWDM applications. With the increasing sophistication of communication networks comes the need for equally powerful test and measurement equipment designed to meet the challenges of DWDM. Whether testing involves manufacturing, installing and commissioning network fiber, or managing, maintaining, monitoring and troubleshooting performance elements, EXFO’s FTB-5240 Optical Spectrum Analyzers (OSAs) are ready to handle any situation. In addition, the FTB-5240 OSA gives you the best of two worlds: the impressive specifications of a lab-quality instrument in a state-of-the-art, field-ready modular unit for fast, accurate and efficient fiber characterization. This application note presents in-band OSNR measuring techniques become essential to accurately measure the OSNR in reconfigurable networks. Specifications. Wavelength range (nm): 1250 to 1650.

Chromatic Dispersion
Chromatic Dispersion is a broadening of the input signal as it travels down the length of the fiber. Chromatic Dispersion results from a variation in propagation delay with wavelength, and is affected by fiber materials and dimensions.

A Detector is a signal conversion device that converts power from one form to another, such as from optical power to electrical power

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)
Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a form of modal dispersion where two different polarizations of light in a waveguide, which normally travel at the same speed, travel at different speeds due to random imperfections and asymmetries, causing random spreading of optical pulses. It is he difference between the maximum and minimum values of loss typically measured in ps/km^1/2.
