Keysight / Agilent 83440B / 83440C / 83440D Lightwave Detector

  • Fast 22 ps Full-Width Half-Max (FWHM) Pulse Response
  • Broad 6, 20 or 30 GHz Bandwidth
  • Small, Convenient Package
  • Low Pulse Aberrations
  • Integral Bias Regulation
  • Ideal for High-Speed Digitizing Oscilloscopes


The Agilent / HP 83440 lightwave converters are fast, accurate, DC-coupled optical-to-electrical (O/E) converters packaged as small optical probes. They mount directly to electrical instrument front panels to simplify integration and minimize distortion and loss from cables, connectors, and signal conditioning components. A simple internal structure ensures very low signal distortion for improved output signal fidelity. By eliminating all unnecessary components along the signal path, the 83440 family offers very accurate electrical representations of modulated optical waveforms. The 83440 family features hermetically sealed, unamplified, InGaAs photodiodes. The input optical port features the Agilent universal optical interface, compatible with most common optical connectors, while the output electrical port features a precision 3.5 mm (83440B/C) or 2.4 mm (83440D) microwave coaxial connector.

Product Family: 83440, 83440A, 83440B, 83440C, and 83440D.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
