Microlease added Sycatus's optical test systems to its distribution portfolio.

Microlease expands its distribution portfolio with Sycatus

  • Microlease, electronic test equipment sourcing specialist, has added Sycatus’s solutions to its distribution portfolio.
  • Sycatus is an Japanese provider of noise and delay measurement in optical transmission components and systems. 
  • Under the agreement, Microlease will sell Sycatus’s optical test solutions throughout Europe.

For Makoto Shikata, president of Sycatus, this agreement is « an opportunity to make our optical and wireline test systems more accessible to the European market. »

Main Sycatus’s optical test systems :

  • RIN (Relative Intensity Noise) Measurement System realizes 40 GHz measurement bandwidth with 40 GHz optical receiver and Keysight X-series signal analyzer ; wavelength optical range of 800-1625nm with SM/MM selection ; sensitivity <-160dB/Hz.
  • Optical frequency/phase noise analyzer for evaluation of optical frequency noise of lasers as power spectrum density ; wavelength optical range of 1520-1620 nm.
  • Laser Linewidth Measurement System down to 40kHz combined Keysight’s signal analyzer and dedicated test set, wavelength range of both C and L bands ( 1520-1620 nm) ; interferometer and optical receiver in one box.
  • Optical Delay Time Measurement System measures the delay time between the input and the output of an optical path of fiber optic components such as patch cords, couplers and switches. This solution is  composed of Keysight E5063A Network Analyzer, Optical Test Set and User Interface software. Wavelength : 1550 nm, 1310 nm 1064 nm or 850 nm.

Microlease already offers new instruments as Keysight Authorised Technology Partner and Premium Distributor in the UK and Italy, as Viavi Premier Solutions Partner in the UK and Germany and as GW Instek Authorised Distributor in the UK, Ireland, Italy and Spain

Sycatus is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The company was created in 2009. Between 2004 and 2009, it operated within the Agilent Technologies Photonic Solution Group. Keysight Technologies was created in 2014 to integrate Agilent’s electronic test and measurement business, while Agilent is focusing on instrumentation for life sciences.
