DiCon Announces New 50 GHz MEMS Tunable Optical Bandpass Filter with Smaller Footprint



Richmond, CA - DiCon Fiberoptics releases an update to the 50 GHz MEMS Tunable Optical Bandpass Filter. This third generation filter features the same superior performance of previous generations in a package that is 40% smaller with reductions in both the height and footprint dimensions.

With multiple bandwidth options and fast tuning speed, the MEMS Tunable Optical Bandpass Filter is ideal for any application that requires wavelength tuning. An extension of DiCon's already proven MEMS technology platform, it demonstrates the same longevity and durability as other DiCon products, such as the MEMS Variable Optical Attenuator and the MEMS 1xN Optical Switch.

The Tunable Optical Bandpass Filter is able to tune within the C or L band and can be optimized for either a 50 or 100 GHz channel plan. Because the filter has both continuous scan and channel parking capability, it can be used in a wide range of today's optical filter applications. For example, its uses range from acting as an optical channel monitor for DWDM systems, an optical spectrum analyzer for test and measurement, or a tunable demultiplexer at a ROADM node. The compact size and reliability of the MEMS Optical Tunable Bandpass Filter also make it ideal for military and defense avionic systems.
