12 June 2003 Grenoble, France and Summit, NJ Lightwave -- OpsiTech, supplier of high-performance, low-cost integrated optical components and modules for optical networking systems, has joined the multi-source agreement (MSA) on thermally stabilized arrayed waveguide AWG modules.
The AWG MSA defines the standardization of the mechanical and electrical interfaces of DWDM multiplexers and demultiplexers for both non-cyclic and cyclic operations.
"OpsiTech's customers are pleased to beneficiate from this MSA initiative," contends Jerome Prieur, vice president of sales and business development at OpsiTech. "It ultimately reduces time to market, cost, and inventory."
OpsiTech's AWG-based components includes 50-, 100- and 200-GHz non-cyclic, cyclic, and polarization maintaining multiplexers and demultiplexers.
