Nuphoton Technologies, Inc. offers Ethernet interface option for EDFAs

Murrieta CA, ( July 2006) – Nuphoton Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of the leading-edge technology fiber optic communications products now provides Ethernet communication option for its rack mount EDFAs and gain blocks.

The Ethernet option provides remote management capabilities to the EDFA. With this option, the EDFA no longer needs to be connected to the monitoring / controlling computer directly. It can be connected anywhere in the network and be accessed through an IP address.

The EDFAs can be ordered with Ethernet interface option or RS233 interface option.

Nuphoton Releases EDFA with Extended Operating Temperature

Murrieta CA, ( April 2006) – Nuphoton Technologies Inc, a fiber optic amplifier and fiber laser specialist, has released a new Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) with extended operating temperature range. This innovative product NP2000-XT offers extended operating temperature range from -40 to +85 degree C, beyond the Telecordia requirement of -5 to + 65 degree C. This new product complements the existing product portfolios for the FTTH, CATV and Aerospace applications.Development of NP2000-XT was in response to customer demand for an EDFA that can operate in the extreme temperatures imposed by demanding applications like FTTH. In a typical FTTH environment, EDFAs can be deployed in locations like on top of electrical poles or edges of building walls. In these cases the traditional temperature protection measures like repeater sheds or chambers may not be practical or cost effective. NP2000-XT is an ideal solution for such environments.Fig. 2 shows the output power, gain, and noise figure of Nuphoton EDFA gain block at temperatures of -40, 25, and 83oC. As demonstrated in Fig.2, this EDFA can provide output power > 18dBm across the C-band in the -40 to +85 oC operating temperature range.The typical electrical power consumption is under 5W.NP2000-XT is a highly reliable optical amplifier, with comparable MTBF of conventional amplifiers.

Goodrich Sensor Systems awards Nuphoton Best Supplier of the year 2005

Burnsville, MN, ( November 2005) – Nuphoton was awarded the Best Supplier of 2005 for innovation, in the annual supplier conference of Goodrich Sensor Systems. Nuphoton was selected from amongst the 63 suppliers of the Sensor Systems division of Goodrich.Nuphoton was lauded for its product excellence and commitment to customer satisfaction.
