OXNARD, Calif. -- Chromux Technologies, Inc. (Oxnard, CA), a leading developer of optics and MEMS-based products for optical communications systems, today introduced 1xN planar waveguide splitters. The low-loss waveguide splitters are ideal for managing video, voice and data signals in optical access networks using passive optical networking (PON) technology.

The Chromux waveguide splitters improve the performance of fiber-to-the-premises and fiber-to-the-curb networks by offering wide wavelength response and excellent port-to-port uniformity. They are available as chips or packaged modules in 1x8, 1x16 and 1x32 configurations. The 1x32 configuration features insertion loss of 16.8 dB, polarization dependent loss of 0.3 dB and 1.7 dB uniformity over a 390-nm-wide transmission window (1230 to 1620 nm). The modules are Telcordia qualified.

"High-performance waveguide splitters are a key enabling technology for FTTP networks. Their broad wavelength coverage and port-to-port uniformity will help system vendors address both current and future needs," said John Auyeung, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Chromux. "Our planar waveguide splitters are reliable, cost-effective and offer outstanding performance in every area. In fact, several of our customers have reported favorable results when testing our splitters for performance and reliability."
