Home Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) Splitter/Coupler Modules

 

 

Introduction:

    Fiberdyne presents the Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) splitter. Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) technology is the latest in passive, fiber-optic component manufacturing. It uses semiconducter (i.e. integrated circuit) fabrication techniques, to build compact, fiber-optic devices. This technique displaces fused-biconical taper devices for high-count splitters (e.g 1x32). The resulting devices are smaller and more robust.

Conceptual Usage:
    Couplers are typically used where an aggregate of optical power is required. Therefore, Coupler Module is an assembly, which houses coupler components. These components combine optical power from two or more inputs.

    Splitter applications are more common. Typically, they are used for video distribution or for data network monitoring. Inputs are divided and sent to several destinations (e.g. to neighborhoods for CATV). Alternatively, a low-power signal sample is "read-out" with minimal impact, to the link. Therefore, a Splitter Module is an assembly, which house splitter components. These components divide optical power to two or more outputs.
