Given the incredible growth in the demand for more bandwidth in the datacenter, innovation is the only way forward," said Sarah Boen, general manager, Wired Communications, Tektronix. With the deployment of 100G and transition to PAM4, our customers were looking to us to deliver a more efficient and faster debug solution. Market demands like this are what lead to innovation and we're honored that the DPO70E1 has been selected as a finalist for this important award.

The DPO7OE1 can also be used as a conventional Optical-to-Electrical (O/E) converter for wide-bandwidth optical signal acquisition. The DPO7OE1 provides an FC/PC or FC/APC optical connection for Tektronix high performance oscilloscopes for high-speed optical signal verification. It can also be used for legacy NRZ applications. Analysis packages support standard optical measurements including ER, AOP, OMA, eye height and eye width as well as PAM4 IEEE and OIF-CEI standard specific measurements including TDECQ.
