ANRITSU MS9740B Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) combines high-end measurement-sensitivity performance, expanded functionality, compact size and high-speed measurement capability. Unit accurately verifies and improves time-to-market of 100G/400G optical modules designed into 5G and Cloud communications systems. Unit enhances the optical receiver bandwidth settings. This design approach significantly improves throughput while maintaining high performance. The benchtop OSA has wide range of >70dB and maximum measurement processing time of 0.35s (sweeping 30-nm wavelength). Optical sensitivity is as low as –90dBm. Accurate side mode suppression ratio (SMSR) measurements can be made at 45 dB or more, helping engineers have confidence in their designs.
