MEMSCAP, a company specializing in MEMS-based solutions, announced that the company’s high voltage electrostatic MEMS variable optical attenuator has successfully completed Telcordia qualification by meeting all mechanical, environmental and operational stress tests described in GR-1221 and GR-1209 standards for passive optical components.
Variable optical attenuators based on MEMS technology are used in complicated optical modules that operate up to 100 GBits. Their usage in optical networks applications such as optical module protection and power management is ever-increasing.
According to Steve Wilcenski, who serves as General Manager for Customer Products Business Unit at MEMSCAP, the company is committed to produce several innovative products with superior quality, performance and consistency. The Telcordia qualification is a testament to the company’s commitment towards highly reliable designs, processes, packaging and packaged products.
The completion of the Telcordia qualification is an important landmark in the MEMSCAP’s strategy to offer highly integrated components with high value proposition to customers and markets. Through this qualification, customers can now confidently integrate the company’s packaged products into their systems and modules.
MEMSCAP offers custom and standard products and solutions such as component designs, components, production and associated services. The company’s customers include top universities, research institutes, and Fortune 500 companies.
MEMSCAP’s packaged electrostatic variable optical attenuator is compatible with majority of optical printed circuit boards offered in the market. It demonstrates better optical power attenuation stability. The company now offers high voltage variable optical attenuators for sampling and production shipments.
