MPC-202 Multifuction Polarization Controller
The MPC-202 is an advanced Multifunction Polarization Controller specially designed to meet the requirements of coherent receiver performance tests. It combines General Photonics’ award winning PolaRite™ II/III polarization controller with proprietary polarization control algorithms to achieve a wide range of polarization control functionalities, including high speed quasi-uniform rate polarization scrambling, random-rate polarization scrambling with Rayleigh rate distribution, discrete-state polarization scrambling with high slew rate, sine, square, and triangle-wave SOP modulation, and manual polarization control functions...
The PMD-1000 is a flexible, digital PMD source that deterministically generates precise 1st order PMD up to 180 ps and 2nd order PMD up to 8100 ps2. Its quasi-continuous operation mode enables independent generation of first order and wavelength independent second order PMD for uniform coverage of the PMD space.
High speed fiber optic transceivers, including those deploying coherent detection technology for 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s data transmission, must meet stringent PDL tolerance specifications. In addition, the PDL tracking speed and response time of the PDL mitigation algorithm of a coherent detection receiver must be quantified...
The PSY-201 generates and maintains any state of polarization (SOP), regardless of the input SOP. It combines General Photonics’ patented controller, polarimeter, and control algorithms into an instrument that functions as both an SOP generator and a polarization analyzer.
