NeoPhotonics announces general availability of ultra-compact MEMS-based VOA

NeoPhotonics Corp of San Jose, CA, USA (a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of hybrid photonic integrated optoelectronic modules and subsystems for high-speed communications networks) has announced general availability of its new ultra-compact FVOA-9000 MEMS-based variable optical attenuator.

The FVOA-9000 extends the high-performance and high-reliability record from the highly FVOA-5000/8000 product line, which has been in volume production for more than a decade. The new FVOA-9000 again improves key performance measures while achieving a size reduction of nearly 70% in the global component footprint.

The FVOA-9000 now achieves response times of less than 2ms along with lower wavelength-dependent loss, making it well-suited to transient suppression in erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) optical amplifiers. In addition to a reduction in the size of the TO can hermetic package, the FVOA-9000 does not require an external ESD protection board, further decreasing its overall use footprint in system design. Its compact size is an advantage when used in next-generation applications where size is a critical factor, such as mini-EDFAs, compact pluggable coherent modules and compact line cards and transponders.

NeoPhotonics is exhibiting its suite of coherent components for 600G to 1 Terabit, along with its broad family of products for high-speed applications, in booth 2923 at the Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2019) in San Diego, CA, USA (5-7 March).
