Tsunami, developer of cost-effective components and modules for optical communications networks, has introduced its new Mini-MetroChannel 4-channel and 8-channel CWDM passive multiplexer and demultiplexer modules.

The Mini-MetroChannel CWDM modules are designed for integration into metro and access communication networks. Based on a highly integrated design, the modules measure approximately 45 x 28 x 9 mm (1.8 x 1.1 x 0.4 in). The 4-channel and 8-channel modules feature an extremely low insertion loss of 1.0 dB and 1.5 dB respectively, while both exhibit high channel isolation, claim company representatives. Designed to work with uncooled lasers with wavelengths spaced 20 nm apart, the modules' performance is independent of protocol and data rate.

Tsunami's Mini-MetroChannel modules provide an ideal balance of price and performance for multiplexing and demultiplexing in metro and access optical networks, says the company.
