New Ridge has been at the forefront in defining test methodologies and designing and manufacturing equipment to make PMD tolerance testing of fiber optical receivers quantitative, repeatable, and comparable. Our PMD sources have set the standard for the generation of PMD states to ease the often difficult and lengthy process of PMD testing. Then coherent Read more about DSPs simplify PMD Tolerance Testing of Coherent Receivers[…]
I recently was interviewed by CEOCFO Magazine. The Q&A was published on line. You can read the article here. We covered the past, present and future directions of New Ridge. I also managed to describe (and pitch) our products. The article is available for download in PDF format (or formatted for mobile devices Mobile PDF).
With the release of software version 2.1.0, the NRT-8000 is truly a powerful instrument. Some of our updates offer features typical of other OSAs such as scan averaging and data logging. And some of our new features extend the NRT-8000’s capabilities beyond the boundaries of traditional OSAs. Below we will describe the most significant new features and updates. Resolutions Read more about New Features Enable New Test Capabilities for the NRT-8000 OSA[…]
In gratitude to the academics who push new frontiers of science and technology and train the next generation of scientists and engineers, we are announcing our 2016 ‘Back To School’ sale of the NRT-8000 compact OSA. For this limited time the NRT-8000 is priced below the normal academic discount. So academics, get a new Optical Spectrum Analyzer Read more about A Back-to-School OSA[…]
I get a fair number of confidential phone calls and e-mails reporting coherent receivers unlocking due to very fast SOP transient events. These transients can be hundreds of thousands of radians per second, even over 1 million radians per second, within 10s of microseconds, followed by a slower relaxation in a few milliseconds. Such ∆SOPs Read more about Are Ultrafast SOP Events Affecting Your Coherent Receivers?[…]
