10 March 2003 -- A pan-European supplier of low cost pattern generators LA Techniques of the United Kingdom will exhibit for the first time at this month's OFC exhibition in Atlanta.

The company will be showcasing its range of pulse pattern generators, data driver amplifiers and related components intended for the fibre optic telecoms component industry.

LA techniques has grown steadily over the past five years, will be exhibiting with its new US partner Optimark Fiber Optics of Boston, Mass (Hall B, Booth 2). The companies reached an agreement in December 2002 which involves the US partner in sales, distribution and acting as LA Techniques' representatives throughout North America.

"Coming to OFC is a natural progression for LA Techniques," said sales and marketing director Chris Lester. "There has been a demand for our products in North America since we were formed. Our first export order was from the United States.

"The appointment of Optimark was designed to establish a more dedicated and thorough approach and visitors to OFC will now have the opportunity to see for themselves what we can deliver and why we have been so successful."

Among the LA Techniques products highlighted at OFC will be the highly successful LA 19-02-01 12 Gb/s and the LA 19-01-01 2.7Gb/s pulse pattern generators.

The LA 19-02-01 is a pseudo random pulse pattern generator capable of operation of up to 12 Gb/s. It can accommodate two internal clock generators and also accepts an external clock input.

It provides a fast pulse output up to 4Vpp suitable for applications such as testing high bit rate communication components, fast pulse amplifiers and high speed logic circuit development.

The LA 19-01-01 operates up to 2.7 Gb/s and provides a fast rise time and low pulse distortion. It can also accommodate two internal clock generators and an external clock output and provides a clean pulse output suitable for applications such as optical communications, fast pulse amplifiers and high speed logic circuit development.

Both products have established an international pedigree in production testing and development applications, where a fully-featured pattern generator is not always necessary.

"There is considerable life in the North American market, especially for high-spec, low-cost equipment that delivers on its promises," said Lester.
