The Multiple Application Platform (MAP-200) Tunable Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) laser (mTLG-C1) is a new-generation tunable laser that is ideal for DWDM testing where the capability to change wavelength on demand over the C- band with 50 GHz spacing is essential.
The MAP-200 is the first photonic layer lab and manufacturing platform to be LAN Extensions for Instrumentation (LXI)-compliant, bringing the full power of Ethernet connectivity and ease of use of interchangeable virtual instrument (IVI) drivers to the optical test environment. The MAP-200 platform’s industry-leading density and configurability enables test engineers to meet specific application requirements in the smallest possible footprint.
The new mTLG-C1 is based on a Sampled Grating Distributed Bragg Reflector (SGDBR) laser with an integral wavelength locker. Wavelength and output power settings are controlled using the MAP-200 local interface or automation interfaces. The integrated wavelocker and automatic power control loop enable very stable operation.
