Optiviva MEMS VOA-300 release

Guangzhou Yinxun Optiviva Inc. (Guangzhou, China, and Northern California, USA) announces today the general availability of its patent pending MEMS Variable Attenuator, MVOA-300.  The new line of MEMS Variable Attenuators (VOAs) is designed to meet the Telcordia 1209 and 1221 requirements. Comparing to our existing MVOA-200 and MVOA-250 product line, this new MVOA-300 has dramatically improved the products performance and stability with its unique assembly technique. Particularly, the MVOA-300 VOAs have adopted the industrys popular TO-46 packaging style with Optivivas own proprietary of hermetic sealing technology.

Specifications include:

  • Compact Size: 5.5X18mm

  • Low Power Consumption: <0.1mw

  • Low Drive Voltage: 0~8 DCV Drive

  • Fast Response Time: 2ms

  • Attenuation range: >40dB 

  •  Repeatability: <0.1dB

  • Working Wavelength: C bandL band

  • Insertion Loss: <0.8dB

  • WDL: <0.4dB

  • PDL: <0.2dB

  • TDL: <0.2dB

MVOA-300 VOA offers two configurations: blockingminimum attenuation at power offand non-blocking (maximum attenuation at power off). This line of VOAs is designed for the broad applications in dynamic optical modules like R-OADM, V-Mux, OXC and EDFA. MEMS VOA brings clear advantages in cost, speed, power consumption, and size, in applications such as channel equalization, gain-tilt control and transmission protection, etc
