1/10th of the cost??? sounds too good to be true...could you provide some specific numbers?

Cost or price-performance is about 1/10th of traditional rack and stand instruments, when considering instrument cost and throughput.

Regarding the O/E Picometrics makes instrument grade reference optical receivers that are widely used in testing optical modules. Chekc the PT-12B

It all looks great and I am sure that are some applications that wil use thse optical cable...but the addition of two O/E converters adds significant burden...could you compare cost and power dissipation between both approaches? Kris
