C-Band Boosters & Preamplifiers

1RU Test InstrumentHigh power boosters of up to 30 dBm output power and low noise preamps with input power as low as -50 dBm provides the flexibility to meet a wide array of customer requirements.

Available with AC power supply for the 1RU format, and with RS232 and USB communication ports in the 2RU formats.

Power Amplifiers

These one- to four-pump boosters are ideally suited to calibration of instruments at high-power level and linearity checks.

Features

 

1RU-AC 2RU  
Maximum Saturated Output Power at -5 dBm Input Power 27 30 dBm
Minimum Operational Bandwidth 1529 - 1563 1535-1567 nm
Noise Figure at 1550 nm, -5 dBm Input Power ≤ 5.0 (4.3 typ) ≤ 5.5 dB
Many standard models available with output powers between 10 dBm and 30 dBm

Gain-Flattened Amplifiers

Flattened up to 40 nm, these units offer high output power in the C band for DWDM applications, with the same user-friendly features of their non-flattened cousins.

Features

 

1RU-AC  
Maximum Saturated Output Power 27 dBm
Minimum Operational Bandwidth 1530 - 1565 nm
Noise Figure ≤ 5.5 dB
Gain Flatness at Optimum Gain < 1.5 dB
Many standard models available with output powers between 10 dBm and 27 dBm

Preamplifiers

Extremely high-gain and almost quantum-limited noise figure in one turn-key package.

Features

  • Near quantum-limited noise figure
  • Up to 50 dB small-signal gain
  • Output isolator
