The Multiple Application Platform (MAP Series) Tunable Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) laser (mTLG-C2) 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 Series 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 Series platform’s industry-leading density and configurability enables test engineers to meet specific application requirements in the smallest possible footprint.
The new mTLG-C2 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 Series local interface or automation interfaces. The integrated wavelocker and automatic power control loop enable very stable operation.
