The validation of optical transceivers over temperature is critical to test device compliance over operating conditions and to demonstrate the robustness of the technology. MultiLane has developed the MLT8000 series, a scalable solution that enables the thermal testing of transceivers with precise temperature control.
The MLT8000 incorporates custom doors that enable the DUTs to be inside the chamber while the test equipment remains outside, properly thermally isolated. The doors are designed to fit a standard TestEquity thermal chamber. The system can hold up to 16 low-profile 400G BERTs with DUTs, enabling up to 16 DUTs to be tested simultaneously for optical transmitter characteristics and receiver sensitivity.
