Internally compensated digital VOA modules improve cost : iC'VOA(TM) Family

AFOP announces the release of the new iC’VOA Line which delivers higher functionality at lower cost per channel than other industry VOA technologies.

Wessling, (PresseBox) - The increased deployment of ROADM technology calls for more modular, digitally interfaced subsystems, such as the electrically controlled Variable Optical Attenuator (VOA). New technology can make a modular, digital VOA device design possible.

Featuring an internal compensation ( iC) controller, the patent pending iC’VOAs provide stability, reliability and accuracy and provides an I2C digital interface.. This new VOA technology provides superior WDL and PDL performance over a broader wavelength and temperature range - a significant improvement over other VOA solutions. iC’VOAs are the preeminent design-in solution that combines top performance and flexibility with an exceptionally low price per-channel. iC’VOAs from AFOP are a simple way to eliminate complicated device integration and gain significant savings in many applications with a modular, high performance VOA solution. It is customizable to various packaging and connector options.
