MARCH 21, 2010 -- Enablence Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: ENA) will unveil two products for its Components and Subsystems Division, including new tunable optical filter array and photodiode products, at OFC/NFOEC 2010.

The tunable bandpass filter array is an integrated optical and electronic module designed for directionless ROADM add/drop applications when combined with Enablence’s multicast switch product line. System designers can achieve directionless, colorless, and contentionless ROADM nodes at lower per port cost, Enablence asserts. Its design enables designers to fully use the potential of tunable lasers and have truly agile optical networks with flexible wavelength allocation and no need to pre-plan wavelengths, the company adds.

The side-illuminated low-entry monitor photodiode features an angled facet and a large optical area for monitoring the optical output of edge-emitting lasers that are mounted up-side down. Due to its angled side facet, a “wrap-around” submount is not required. The photodiode is optimized for monitoring Fabry-Perot or distributed feedback lasers used in singlemode data and telecom applications, as well as pump lasers used in erbium doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs).
