SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR), a global technology leader for fiber optic subsystems and components for communication applications, today introduced the new WaveShaper S-Series extending the flexibility and performance of its family of Programmable Optical Processors. These enhanced optical processors provide advanced arbitrary filter generation and switching capabilities to simplify and increase the precision of optical system development and production test. They are well-suited for telecom equipment and systems manufacturers, R&D laboratories, and universities.

WaveShaper optical processors offer the ideal tool for DWDM system and component testing, optical pulse shaping and control, and high-speed optical research and development. The new WaveShaper S-Series extends this already powerful platform with:

  • Enhancements to the Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) optical engine to provide even higher optical resolution for improved control of filter shape and dispersion;

  • New software, including drivers for LabVIEW and Linux, to simplify integration of the WaveShaper into complex test systems;

  • Smaller form factor to free up valuable space within test systems.

"With the new S-Series, Finisar continues to demonstrate its leadership in optical filtering and Wavelength Selective Switch technology," said Simon Poole, Director of New Business Ventures for Finisar. "By leveraging our extensive optical expertise, we have again delivered unmatched control, precision, and flexibility to our customers."
