Boulder, Colo. Picosecond Pulse Labs (PSPL) has introduced the Model 8001 LABware instrument that integrates a 12 Gbits/s amplifier, a power supply, amplitude control, and crossing point control in a single instrument.
The Model 8001 provides a typical amplitude of 8 Vpp and a rise time of 14 picoseconds. Each control is separately adjusted through dials on the front panel. The lab instrument may be used for driving Lithium Niobate optical modulators up to 12.5 Gbits/s in the lab or used as a linear amplifier with 12 GHz of bandwidth when the instrument's input is kept below its saturation level.
Pricing: List price for U.S. customers is $3,395/unit.
Availability: In most cases, these instruments are available from stock or within six weeks ARO.
