JANUARY 18, 2007 -- ColorChip (search for ColorChip) has unveiled its new high-performance Spark Splitter family of splitters. The company says its Spark splitter produces some of the highest optical performance in the fiber to the home and FTTx marketplace in a very compact design.
The Spark Splitters are based on Color Chip's proprietary planar light wave circuit technology. A fully packaged 1x32 splitter achieves insertion loss values below 16.2 dB and PDL values below 0.2 dB.
"The Spark Splitter product family was developed to achieve our customer's demand for ultra low loss splitters, used for PON networks. The advantage of such splitters is the extra distance the network can reach from the central office," said Moshe Price, CEO of ColorChip. "ColorChip is committed in continuing to provide higher-quality splitters to the market."
The Spark Splitters are available in 1x4, 1x8, 1x16, and 1x32 splitters for the GEPON (EPON), BPON, and GPON markets.
