Teledyne LeCroy demos first 100GHz real-time oscilloscope as it releases new chip design to Teledyne Scientific’s InP foundry

Teledyne LeCroy of Chestnut Ridge, NY, USA (a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Inc) has demonstrated what is claimed to be the first 100GHz real-time oscilloscope by acquiring and displaying live signals at 100GHz bandwidth (exceeding currently available capabilities). High-speed oscilloscopes are vital tools in the development of high-speed digital networks, says the firm. “It reveals new phenomena, opens channels for new discoveries and paves the way for vast improvements in the field of high speed measurement,” says Tom Reslewic, CEO, Teledyne environmental and electronic measurement instrumentation.

The demonstration was conducted at the research facilities of Teledyne Scientific Company in Thousand Oaks, CA. Teledyne LeCroy and Teledyne Scientific also announced that they have completed the design of a jointly developed next-generation indium phosphide (InP) chip and have released the design for fabrication at Teledyne Scientific's InP foundry. The chip is the first device in an expansive chip-set planned for future generations of high-speed oscilloscopes. Teledyne acquired LeCroy Corp in August 2012 and has pursued synergies related to the development of ultra-high-speed oscilloscopes.

“We are pleased to see the 100GHz real-time oscilloscope milestone reached less than one year after the acquisition of Teledyne LeCroy,” comments Teledyne’s chairman, president & CEO Robert Mehrabian. “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.”
