Finisar Test & Measurement Workshop at ECOC 2016


The WaveShaper family of Programmable Optical Processors provides a range of programmable optical filtering and switching solutions for optical R&D and production test applications. Based on Finisar's high resolution, solid-state Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) optical engine, the WaveShaper family delivers extremely fine control of filter characteristics, including center wavelength, bandwidth, shape and, for WaveShaper 1000, 4000 and 16000, dispersion and attenuation. All members of the WaveShaper family can be controlled through the WaveManager Application Suite, which provides an intuitive user interface for real-time control of multiple WaveShapers. In addition, a common API across both Windows and Linux operating systems makes it easy to integrate the WaveShaper functionality into the users system. LabVIEW™ drivers are provided as well as bindings for common programming and scripting languages such as C, Visual Basic, Python, etc.

The WaveAnalyzer High Resolution Optical Spectrum Analyzer allows picometer resolution spectral analysis in combination with a real-time measurement update rate of up to 10 Hz.
