VIAVI MAP Variable Optical Attenuator (mVOA)


The Multiple Application Platform (MAP) Variable Optical Attenuator (mVOA-C1) is optimized for the industry-leading VIAVI MAP-200 platform. Based on the previous-generation Multiple Application Platform (MAP), the MAP-200 is the first photonic layer lab and manufacturing platform that is LAN Extensions for Instrumentation (LXI)-compliant by conforming to the required physical attributes, Ethernet connectivity, and interchangeable virtual instrument (IVI) drivers. The MAP-200 platform is optimized for density and maximum configurability to meet specific application requirements in the smallest possible foot print.

The mVOA-C1 is a stepper motor and filter based attenuator that takes advantage of the latest available technologies to provide the highest performance optical power level control solution with the lowest optical impairments.

Ultra low insertion loss to minimize loss budget utilization

High accuracy and high repeatability to reduce measurement uncertainty

Fast transition speed to reduce testing time

Flat spectral response to reduce wavelength dependent uncertainty in multi-wavelength applications (CWDM, DWDM)

Low backreflection to reduce instabilities due to reflected light

Optional built-in wavelength calibrated power meter reduces the uncertainty by reducing external connections

High input power capability for EDFA testing and multi-wavelength applications
