Trimming the optical signal power levels in a fibre requires the employment of a variable optical attenuator. Uses include preventing a photodetector at a receiver from being overwhelmed by an excessively powerful signal and balancing the power leaving an optical amplifier across a fiber’s spectrum.
An optical attenuator, also known as a fibre optic attenuator, is a tool used to lower an optical signal’s power level, either in open space or inside an optical fibre.
Optical attenuators can be classified as fixed, stepwise variable, and continuously variable. MEMS attenuators in both the normally open and normally closed states are focused on important network optical power control applications.
The Telcordia 1221 dependability programme is completely complied with by the MATT series attenuators.
The Global MEMS Variable Optical Attenuator market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
Ultra-Compact MEMS Based Variable Optical Attenuator Is Already Available in the General Market, According to NeoPhotonics The General Availability of NeoPhotonics Corporation’s novel new ultra-compact FVOA-9000 MEMs based variable optical attenuator was announced today.
NeoPhotonics Corporation is a leading designer and manufacturer of optoelectronic solutions for the highest speed communications networks in telecom and datacenter applications.
The market-leading FVOA-5000/8000 product series from NeoPhotonics, which has been in volume production for more than 10 years, continues to set the bar for excellent performance and dependability with the FVOA-9000.
A significant size reduction of over 70% in the global component footprint is achieved by this new FVOA-9000, which also improves important performance metrics.
For transient suppression in EDFA optical amplifiers, the FVOA-9000 now achieves response times of less than 2 milliseconds and decreased wavelength dependent loss.
The FVOA-9000 has a smaller overall use footprint in system design thanks to its reduced TO can hermetic packaging size and lack of a need for an external ESD protection board. Its small size is a big plus for next-generation applications like Mini-EDFAs, tiny pluggable coherent modules, and small line cards and transponders where size is crucial.
