WALTHAM, Mass. -- CyOptics Inc., a leading developer of Indium Phosphide based active optical components, today introduced the EAM2010, a zero insertion-loss, external electro-absorption modulator (EAM) that provides up to 10dBm output power. Building on the company platform of 10Gbps devices, the EAM2010 is the newest release in a line of high-performance EAMs integrating multiple functions to increase capacity and reduce costs in both metro and long haul applications. When used with a single mode source laser, the EAM2010 offers exceptionally low chirp, enabling a very low dispersion penalty for an 80-125km uncompensated link. The device's high launch power eliminates the need for an external post amplifier, and it integrated power monitoring and control capability replaces external monitors and variable optical attenuators. The result is a significant reduction of system complexity, size and cost. "By providing high launch power, very low dispersion, and integrated functionality, the EAM2010 addresses specific customer needs for today's applications," says John Pilitisis, CyOptics chief executive officer. "Our focus is on leveraging our expertise in Indium Phosphide technology to develop a full line of highly-integrated cost effective solutions."CyOptics Inc.
