Quantifi Photonics launches new oscilloscope for interconnect testing


Quantifi Photonics, a manufacturer of photonics test and measurement instruments, has announced that it is launching its new QCA Series High-Speed Communication Analyzer at DesignCon 2024, a conference being held from 31 January to 2 February.

The QCA Series is a digital sampling oscilloscope designed to offer cost-effective performance and enable manufacturers of next-generation interconnects to overcome the critical testing roadblock of scaling production to high volumes.

Quantifi says its new product has ultra-low jitter performance and unrivalled instrument density, making it ideally suited to perform high-precision measurements in parallel for optimised test throughput and reduced cost-of-test in high-volume testing and manufacturing applications. The company also says the QCA Series can be easily integrated into existing assembly and alignment equipment used to manufacture next-generation interconnects.

The new QCA Series targets applications across 100-800G and 1.6T Ethernet, emerging co-packaged optics and in-package optical I/O, and computer interfaces such as PCI Express and USB.

The QCA is initially available as an electrical version for 25G NRZ and 26.6/53.1 GBaud PAM4 and will be followed by an optical version. To facilitate the triggering of the QCA for optimum measurement accuracy particularly for DSP-based technologies, Quantifi Photonics will also be offering the QCR Series of Clock Recovery modules. The QCA is powered by VISEYE analysis software and graphical user interface.

Andy Stevens, CEO of Quantifi Photonics, says: “I'm thrilled to announce the launch of the QCA Series at DesignCon. We've developed a truly scalable and capable oscilloscope platform, addressing a critical gap in the market for high-volume testing and manufacturing for optical and electrical interconnects. With this launch, we're poised to fundamentally transform the sector by substantially reducing the total cost of ownership for oscilloscopes and empower our customers with test solutions for the next generation of communication technologies.”
