Teledyne LeCroy's Oscilloscope First To Achieve 100 GHz

The firm has also released the first in a series of indium phosphide (InP) chips planned for future generations of high speed oscilloscopes


Teledyne LeCroy, Inc., a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Inc.says it has demonstrated the world’s first 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope by successfully acquiring and displaying live signals at 100 GHz bandwidth.

The performance demonstrated dramatically exceeds currently available capabilities. High speed oscilloscopes are vital tools in the development of high-speed digital networks, the critical backbone of the rapidly expanding cloud-based computing paradigm that characterises our digital age.

“Reaching 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope performance is one of many industry milestones achieved by Teledyne LeCroy," says Tom Reslewic, chief executive officer, Teledyne environmental and electronic measurement instrumentation. “It reveals new phenomena, opens channels for new discoveries and paves the way for vast improvements in the field of high speed measurement."

The demonstration was conducted at the research facilities of Teledyne Scientific Company in Thousand Oaks, California.

Teledyne LeCroy and Teledyne Scientific also announced that they have completed the design of a jointly developed next-generation InP chip and have released the design for fabrication at Teledyne Scientific’s InP foundry.

The jointly developed chip is the first device in an expansive chip set planned for future generations of high speed oscilloscopes. Teledyne acquired LeCroy Corporation in August 2012 and has pursued synergies related to the development of ultra high speed oscilloscopes.

“We are pleased to see the 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope milestone reached less than one year after the acquisition of Teledyne LeCroy," comments Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “Releasing the new InP chip in collaboration with Teledyne Scientific on the very same day illustrates the breadth of our technology expertise, and our commitment to taking high performance oscilloscopes to the next level."

InP promises higher speed devices than can be designed in other known processes. Teledyne is a specialist in next generation InP technology, with advanced design and production capabilities currently in place.





 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
