OTTAWA and SAN JOSE, Calif. -- JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASDAQ: JDSU) and (TSE: JDU) today announced four new OA Series Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFAs) for fiberoptic communication systems providers, making it the broadest offering of standard optical amplifiers available. The OA Series offers an alternative to the costly and lengthy design and manufacture associated with traditional, custom-built EDFAs, allowing JDS Uniphase to provide high-performance EDFAs more quickly, more cost-effectively, and to a wider range of customers. The new OA 1000, OA 2000, OA 3000, and OA 4000 deliver high performance as measured by gain, gain flatness, noise figure, and dynamic range. The models and options vary from a compact (107 x 79 x 17 mm) gain block available with low power dissipation (2W) to a high power (22 dBm), fully controlled EDFA with mid stage access. Other options include fast transient suppression, Raman optimization, and variable gain with a 15 dB range that can be set by the user. The OA Series also includes the OA 500 (introduced as the MicroAmp) and the OA 500U (introduced as the Uncooled MicroAmp). In addition to the OA Series, JDS Uniphase offers Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers, Raman Amplifiers and custom EDFAs. JDS Uniphase Inc.
