NEWARK, Calif. -- LIGHTCONNECT, a leading global supplier of dynamic components and modules for optical networks, expands its portfolio of MEMS-based Variable Optical Attenuators with its FVOA (Fast Variable Optical Attenuator) Series 4000.Designed for preventing system damage, the FVOA Series 4000 is ideally suited for receiver protection, or for use as a safety switch during transmitter turn-up until the laser stabilizes. Other applications for the device include single and multi-channel power control, as well as equalization and optical add/drop. LIGHTCONNECT's FVOA Series 4000 has passed all the stringent Telcordia GR-1209 and GR-1221 tests.This latest addition to LIGHTCONNECT's FVOA family of products is able to block the transmission of light when no voltage is applied and reduce the amount of attenuation as the applied voltage is increased. It features the same market-leading levels of performance and reliability as the FVOA Series 2000, including low insertion loss, polarization dependent loss and spectral dependence of attenuation."With this new product, we continue to lead the market in building cost-effective, reliable, high-performance VOAs," said Yves LeMaitre, Vice President of Marketing at LIGHTCONNECT. "By leveraging our design wins with major OEMs, we are now able to deliver custom designed power management solutions."LightConnect Inc.
