MARTLESHAM HEATH, U.K. -- CIP Technologies, a company with a long history of photonics innovation, today announced the release of major new product, the R-SOA-EAM-1550, at the ECOC 2009 conference in Vienna, Austria.

This novel device monolithically integrates a semiconductor optical amplifier with a reflective electro-absorption modulator, to combine high optical gain with high speed modulation capability. The R-SOA-EAM-1550 offers high output power, low power consumption, and low sensitivity to input polarisation, making it suitable for DWDM transmission at speeds of 10 Gb/s over fiber optic links of up to 80 km. The device is ‘colorless’ and a single device may be used across the entire C-band.

“Using colorless modulators with remote DWDM light sources is becoming a viable alternative to expensive tuneable lasers in WDM-PON and metro applications,” commented David Smith, CTO of CIP Technologies. “This level of device performance represents a breakthrough that will simplify and cost-reduce future deployments.”
