FREMONT, Calif. -- Optoplex announced today its release of FlexCombä product line for a bi-directional flat-top and high isolation optical comb filter, and its engagement with major customers for design-in activities.

In contrast with traditional Fabry-Perot cavity based comb filter, FlexCombä is capable of transmitting modulated DWDM signals with its passband width available anywhere from 75% of the channel spacing down to a few pm. Both the filter channel spacing (FSR) and filter duty cycle (3-dB bandwidth to FSR ratio) can be specified by customers. As customers in optical transport equipment and instrumentation industries have described, this filter has superior performance traditional approaches and opens a whole new playing-field of applications from noise suppression for multi-wavelength laser or low-power signal filtering to multi-channel optical transmission.

Based on Optoplex’s patented technologies of micro-optics and phase modulation through thin-film coating, FlexCombä is a pure passive device characterized by minimal temperature dependence, flat passband, high channel isolation, low PDL, and uniform insertion loss. FlexCombä is a Telcordia GR-1221 qualified product.

With the introduction of FlexCombä, Optoplex once again demonstrates its technical innovation in designing new components to solve today’s most challenging optical communication, monitoring, and testing problems.
