Compact EDFAs

The compact low-cost EDFA is a small form factor module with a cooler-less pump laser that offers economical amplification for a wide range of applications. It is designed to amplify from one to eight channels with 100 GHz or 50 GHz ITU-T grid in the C-band. This module is ideal for today’s highly dynamic networks and cost sensitive market.

A standard 6-pin electrical connector (HIROSE DF11-6DP-2DSA) allows for easy electrical connectivity. A standard RS232 or I2C electrical interface is provided for full functional EDFA. The compact EDFA is Telcordia compliant.

MSA Compliant Gain Block EDFA

MSA Compliant EDFAs

Lightwaves2020's MSA compliant gain block is designed for single-channel or banded channel amplification. It is a direct, low-cost drop-in replacement of existing high cost EDFAs.

The EDFA gain block includes a 980 nm pump laser, input monitor and input isolator, output monitor and output isolator, and a reel of optimized erbium-doped fibre. These components are contained within a compact 70 x 90 x 12 mm package.

A user-friendly MSA compatible 20-pin interface is included to enable the device to communicate with control electronics. The MSA EDFA is Telcordia compliant.

MSA Compliant Full Function EDFA

Lightwaves2020's MSA compliant single channel full function EDFA combines state-of-the-art control electronics, firmware and highly reliable optics within a small form factor package to offer compact, economical amplification for a variety of optical signals.

This product offers highly accurate Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and fast transient suppression, automatic constant output power Control (APC) and automatic constant current (ACC) via an RS232 command interface. The MSA EDFA is Telcordia compliant.

Compact ASE Source

Compact ASE source

Lightwaves2020 offers a full range of industry leading, low cost Amplified Spontaneous Emission (ASE) light sources. Using proprietary EDFA technology, Lightwaves2020's compact ASE sources provide up to 10dBm output power across the C-band. And the devices are extremely compact, making them ideal for applications that require a built-in compact broadband light source.

Lightwaves2020 compact ASE light sources exhibit excellent performance, including spectral and power stability. In addition, customers can choose between a standard or flattened spectrum output to best meet their application requirements. The ASEs are normally shipped with a standard RS232 or I2C electrical interface, although customised interface designs are also available. Lightwaves2020's low-cost, compact ASE sources have passed Telcordia GR1312 tests.
