ARRAYED High-Speed VOA  

Ultra-Fast PLZT VOAs

The PLZT variable optical attenuator (VOA) can control optical signal power at nano-second speed suitable for EDFA transient/surge suppression, burst receiver dynamic range enhancement, analog signal modulation, and power control in optical networks.

The PLZT high-speed and low-power consumption VOAs provide the key differentiators for many optical applications such as;
  • Optical transit/surge suppression
  • Channel blocking/limiting
  • Optical power control
  • Channel power equalization
  • Analog optical signal modulation
