Emcore introduces EDFAs to extend reach of Optiva Platform

At the Satellite 2014 event in Washington DC (16-19 March), Emcore Corp of Albuquerque, NM, USA, which makes compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber-optic and solar power markets, has introduced the Optiva OTS-2O and OTS-2OP Series of erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) and pre-amplifier modules, which are designed for a wide variety of extended long-haul signal transport applications.

The Optiva EDFA and pre-amplifier provide building blocks for system integrators to extend fiber-optic links beyond 100km. They are designed to meet the most demanding noise performance requirements of fiber-optic communications and control systems, while performing all the functions required of optical amplifiers for system integration, says Emcore. The new EDFA modules are available with optical output powers of 14, 17, 20 and 23dBm.

Applications for the new Optiva EDFA series include long-distance RF and microwave fiber-optic communications links, CATV systems and FTTx networks, high-performance supertrunking links, high-power distribution networks, sensing and control systems, and redundant ring architectures.

The OTS-2O Series EDFA modules provide input and output optical isolation for stable, low-noise operation. The input and output optical signal power levels are detected for monitoring and control. The input optical signal is amplified with active gain control for a constant output power level, or with active output power control for constant gain mode operation. In the OTS-2OP EDFA pre-amplifier, the very low-level input optical signal is initially pre-amplified, then amplified with active output power control for constant power mode operation, and the output optical signal power levels are detected for monitoring and control.

“The integration of the Optiva OTS-2O and OTS-2OP Series EDFA modules with the Optiva family of 1550nm fiber-optic transport equipment provides a complete solution that extends the reach of fiber links for a wide range of applications,” says Frank Weiss, VP of Advanced Systems.

Key features of the OTS-2O and OTS-2OP Series EDFA include low noise and low power consumption, standard and optional gain flatness (OTS-2O), and local and remote monitors and alarms for all critical operating parameters via SNMP and EMCOREView GUI. In addition, the optical output can be split into multiple ports by optional external splitter. The OTS-2O and OTS-2OP Series EDFA fit Optiva 16, 6- and 2-slot enclosures and are RoHS compliant.
