MEMS Variable Optical Attenuator

(Φ 6mm diameter, 1260-1620nm)

The MEMS Series VOA is based on a micro-electro-mechanical mechanism featuring integrated compact design, simple construction, easy direct drive, and excellent optical performance of ultra low insertion loss, low PDL, and broad wavelength operation range. The MEMS Series VOA is compliant with the Telcordia 1209 and 1221 reliability standards. The MEMS Series  VOA is available in either normally-open or normally-closed configurations.  Temperature compensation version is available.

The VOA is driven by applying an electrical voltage.  The electrical connection is a flexible PCB with two holes at the end to mate two corresponding pins on the board.
