This is to announce the release of the latest firmware (Rev. 2.01) for AQ6370C Optical Spectrum Analyzer.

Summary of a few key features and improvements includes:

  • Double sweep speed mode
  • Enhanced analysis and search functions
  • Additional analysis items for Optical transceiver testing
  • Graphical display for EDFA analysis
  • Multi-peak/bottom search function
