However, multimode and multiband brings additional test challenges, such as longer test times during the product development, verification and manufacturing stages.
To avoid the cost, complications and lead times associated with the installation of new fiber, Perle now offers over 30 models of Gigabit Media Converters that enable Gigabit speeds across a multimode fiber link up to 2km in length.
The cost of a premises network when installed using multimode fiber with 850-nm VCSELs is lower than the cost of a network that has been installed using either single-mode or multimode fiber with 1,300-nm lasers.
11g expected this summer, the market's consolidation around multimode a/b/g solutions embedded into laptops will cause an explosion in the adoption of wireless LANs in the enterprise," said Sheung Li, product line manager of Atheros Communications.
In contrast, fibers with cores roughly 50 to 60 [micro]m across often host hundreds of modes--hence the name multimode.
The high resolution and data processing capabilities of the MultiMode 8 are the result of its combination of rigid, mechanical design and extremely advanced SPM control electronics.
The multimode reader will also be used for performing the assessment of biological activities, enzyme assays, (fast/slow) kinetic assays, biochemical binding assays, protein protein interaction analysis, affinity measurements, molecular binding assays, receptor/ligand analysis, cellular and pathway signal analysis, calcium monitoring, cell-based assays.
The MultiMode 8 is Bruker's premier high-resolution research AFM, which is available with an extensive list of new features and accessories that make it ideal for some of the most demanding AFM applications.
Multimode readers were first introduced in the late 1990s, with the latest generation of multimode readers now hitting the market.
