17 September 2003 Quebec City Lightwave -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. announced today the release of the IQS-2700 Tunable External Cavity Laser (ECL) for optical system and component testing applications.

The IQS-2700 Tunable ECL, housed inside the company's IQS-500 Intelligent Test System, is the highest performance, small form factor tunable laser source module on the market, say EXFO representatives. It is available in three different configurations, including an S+C+L-band (1460- to 1625-nm) model optimized for coarse WDM (CWDM) and fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) testing. Other configurations are designed for the C+L bands (1525- to 1625-nm) and E+S bands (1425- to 1525-nm).The C+L-band laser has a high-power output, essential for amplifier and network element testing, while the other two models come with a low-noise power output, ideal for both stopband and passband filter characterization. "Our high-end tunable ECL provides customers with the best of both worlds for their various test applications," contends �tienne vice president of product management, Optical Solutions and Communications. "The broad wavelength range offered by this two-slot module represents a cost-effective solution for system and component testing without sacrificing performance," he adds.
The IQS-2700 Tunable ECL is available in three configurations.
