There are 4 product models of 6433 Series Lightwave component analyzer-6433D (10MHz to 20GHz), 6433F (10MHz to 43.5GHz), 6433H (10MHz to 50GHz) and 6433L (10MHz to 67GHz), they can be divided into 2-port and 4-port models. The Lightwave Component Analyzer is mainly used in high-speed broadband electro-optical device (electro-optical modulator, direct-adjusted laser, TOSA), optoelectronic device (PD, PIN, APD, ROSA), optical device (optical attenuator, EDFA) frequency response parameter test. It is an efficient test equipment in the scientific research, production and measurement process of optical chips, optical devices, optical transceiver components, optoelectronic instruments, and optical communication systems.

l  Integrated multi-function test wizard

The 6433 series Lightwave Component Analyzers have 4 measurement modes: electric-electric, electric-optical, optical-electric and optical-optical. The function modes can be switched arbitrarily, which can meet the measurement requirements of S-parameter, impedance, time domain and other parameters of most common devices at present. The integrated parameter setting is convenient for users to quickly complete the setting of light wave parameters, optical path de-embedding parameters, radio frequency de-embedding parameters and one-key testing.

l  Automatic Fixture Removal

The 6433 series Lightwave component analyzer can automatically remove the fixtures connected to the test link through optical de-embedding and radio-frequency de-embedding. When electrical fixtures or optical fixtures are introduced into the test link, users can select the enable state of radio frequency de-embedding and optical path de-embedding, import fixture parameter files, and automatically remove fixture data to improve measurement accuracy. Especially when the probe error required for the chip test is removed, the measurement is more flexible and meets the measurement needs of users in different occasions.
