Uncooled COAX reflective SOA available in pig-tailed package

CIP Technologies has announced a new addition to its range of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). For the first time, a high signal gain reflective SOA coaxially packaged in a pigtailed TO-56 can is capable of uncooled operation over an extended temperature range.

CIP Technologies has announced a new addition to its range of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). For the first time, a high signal gain reflective SOA coaxially packaged in a pigtailed TO-56 can is capable of uncooled operation over an extended temperature range. This makes it suitable for a broad range of applications including sensor networks and WDM-PONs (wavelength division multiplexing passive optical networks). The SOA-R-OEC-1550-CO uses CIP's proprietary buried InP (indium-phosphide) heterostructure design and offers over 20 dB of signal gain across the C-band at temperatures up to 70 degrees Centigrade. The device is a pigtailed coaxial design, and incorporates a monitor photodiode.

CIP TECHNOLOGIES RELEASES NEW UNCOOLED COAX REFLECTIVE SOA PRODUCT

Martlesham Heath, UK, September 15, 2009 -- CIP Technologies, a company with a long history of photonics innovation, today announced a new addition to its range of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). For the first time, a high signal gain reflective SOA coaxially packaged in a pigtailed TO-56 can is capable of uncooled operation over an extended temperature range. This makes it suitable for a broad range of applications including sensor networks and WDM-PONs (wavelength division multiplexing passive optical networks).

The SOA-R-OEC-1550-CO uses CIP's proprietary buried InP (indium-phosphide) heterostructure design and offers over 20 dB of signal gain across the C-band at temperatures up to 70 degrees Centigrade. The device is a pigtailed coaxial design, and incorporates a monitor photodiode.

Commenting on the announcement, Dr Ian Lealman, CIP's SOA product manager, explained: "CIP already offers uncooled reflective SOAs in TO-can packages for use in Bi-Di modules, but our customers have also been asking for a convenient pigtailed package suitable for early evaluation of WDM-PON architectures. In this configuration, the product
is also proving to be an ideal source in a range of fiber optic sensor networks."
