The TBS2102B is designed to adapt to a continuous increase in demand for higher bandwidths and baud rates addressing current and future test parameters.

Key performance specification

  • Optical bandwidth above 30 GHz
  • Single-mode and multi-mode support for short and long-wavelength optical testing
  • Optical Reference Receiver (ORR) Optical Reference Receiver (ORR) is a 4th order Bessel-Thomson filter with a frequency response and tolerances as defined by the standards. Tektronix optimizes the response for best nominal fit and highest quality mask test results support for standard compliance testing

Key features

New system architecture

  • Disaggregated: Separation of the acquisition hardware and software analysis allows the data to be streamed over Ethernet to a connected PC. Users have the capability to scale their analysis platforms to their needs and can connect from anywhere on the network
  • Configurable: The TSO820 mainframe supports user-swappable current and future optical modules

Optical modules

  • Accurate testing and characterization of short or long wave optical signals using the high sensitivity and low noise performance of the TSO8C17 or TSO8C18 modules
  • Optical reference receivers (ORR)1 supports specified requirements for standards-mandated compliance testing
  • Extinction ratio measurements with built-in variable ER correction to ensure accuracy and repeatability

Analysis with TSOVu®

  • TSOVu: A new software platform that runs independent of the oscilloscope mainframe on users’ computers or server for both live and post-processing of acquired data
  • TSOVu offers comprehensive analysis of PAM4 optical signals. Includes support for eye diagrams, optical measurements such as TDECQ, and other standard measurements
  • Measurement plug-in designed to interface with the base software that can be dynamically installed as needed

High test throughput

  • Simultaneous capture of all channels at a high sample acquisition rate of 300 kS/s
  • Sophisticated Programmatic Interface (PI) for automation environments enables the highest test throughput. Each command supports full data synchronization, eliminating the need for wait / sleep statements
