The Compatible MEMS Series Fiber Optical Variable Attenuator is constructed using our standard VOA core having a circular end shape and pins that are compatible with VOAs made by other manufactures for ease replacement. It uses a patented high reliability thermal activated micro-mirror, moving-in and -out optical paths, uniquely featuring large extinction ratio, high stability over wide temperature range, and exceptionally long life cycle. Unlike electrostatic MEMSs, the thermal MEMS has no drift issues and is insensitive to moisture, vacuum environment, and ESD, providing a high reliability platform for over 25 years continuous operation. The MEMS Straight Series VOAs are configured in single and dual channels (activated at the same time). The VOAs are bidirectional and are Telcordia standards GR1221 qualified.
Photonwares provides customized design and modular assemblies to meet control and integration applications.
