Unveiling the Yokogawa AQ6370E: Revolutionizing Optical Spectrum Analysis for Next-Generation Communication Networks

Introducing the AQ6370E, an enhanced iteration of the renowned AQ6370D. This latest model is packed with advanced capabilities that boost performance and usability. Designed to cater to the needs of various sectors like industry, universities, and research institutions, the AQ6370E offers a comprehensive solution for characterizing an extensive array of components. Its applications span across diverse fields, including optical communications, optical transceivers, and optical amplifiers, making it an ideal choice for professionals in these domains.

Drawing on decades of technological expertise and experience in the field, Yokogawa presents the AQ6370E optical spectrum analyzer. This cutting-edge instrument is designed to address the growing demand for highly accurate and user-friendly test equipment in the research, development, and production of optical communication devices and equipment. The surge in Cloud services, 5G communications, and other information and communication services necessitates robust and high-speed optical communication networks, thereby propelling the need for next-generation optical devices and components capable of supporting these networks. To evaluate the characteristics and quality of these advancements, precise optical test instruments are indispensable, enabling analysis of light wavelength components and measurement of wavelength characteristics.

Since its initial release in 2014, Yokogawa's AQ6370D optical spectrum analyzer has gained widespread adoption in both R&D and production testing. The newly launched AQ6370E builds upon its predecessor by introducing a range of innovative functions and features that streamline development and production processes.

Among the notable enhancements is the High Close-in Dynamic Range (HCDR) mode, which empowers users to measure single longitudinal mode lasers with exceptional close-in dynamic range. Close-in dynamic range plays a vital role in laser and optical device development.

Furthermore, the AQ6370E offers a Side Mode Suppression Ratio (SMSR) mode that reduces measurement time for SMSR and an Application (APP) mode tailored for specific device under test (DUT) interfaces. The APP mode guides users seamlessly through configuration settings to test result outputs, making it easily accessible even for customers unfamiliar with optical spectrum analyzers.

Another notable addition is the large LCD touch screen, enhancing everyday operation of the analyzer with its intuitive and user-friendly interface.
