New Technology, Fewer Parts, Reduce Size and Cost for Omron Optical Coarse Wave Multiplexers/Demultiplexers
SCHAUMBURG, IL (January 20, 2005)-The Omron P1X4 (4 channel) and P1X8 (8 channel) Coarse Wave Division Multiplexers (CWDM) utilize a simplification in architecture to achieve the world's smallest size. This reduction in size, along with a miniature multi-layer thin film filter combined in a proprietary structure, ensure cost competitive performance in this miniature form factor.
These compact 4 and 8 channel mux/demux units measure only 7.2mm (W) by 14.5mm (L) by 4.7mm (H). The P1X4 and P1X8 are available with optional connectors to fit a wide range of network requirements.
These components are ideal for use as Coarse Wave Division Multiplexers (CWDM) and in Passive Optical Networks, including B-PON, E-PON, G-PON and WDM-PON, SAN, OADM and also in metro and metro edge networks including LX4 applications.
The P1X4 and P1X8 components are currently available and are priced at $80/channel in sample quantities.
