Teledyne LeCroy Successfully Demonstrates World’s First 100 GHz Real-Time Oscilloscope
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – July 24, 2013 – Teledyne LeCroy, Inc., a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY), today demonstrated the world’s first 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope by successfully acquiring and displaying live signals at 100 GHz bandwidth. This demonstrated performance 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 characterizes our digital age.
“Reaching 100 GHz real-time oscilloscope performance is one of many industry milestones achieved by Teledyne LeCroy,” said 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, Calif. Teledyne LeCroy and Teledyne Scientific also announced today 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 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,” said 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 is an advanced semiconductor process that promises higher speed devices than can be designed in other known processes. Teledyne is a leader in next generation InP technology, with advanced design and production capabilities currently in place.
