Avanex Develops Ultra-Thin Amplifier Module

Avanex introduced an ultra-thin erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) module that measures 7.5 mm in thickness, over 35% thinner than any amplifier previously available from Avanex.

Avanex said its new PureGain 400 is designed to work within the stringent space constraints found in transponder and line card applications and is an essential tool to enable increased bit rate transponders. The physical and electrical interface of this new product can be shared with transponders.
