Phoenix Photonics to launch Firebird Instrumentation portfolio

By Telecomlead Team: Optical fiber component specialist Phoenix Photonics
announced it will launch two new products in its Firebird Instrumentation
product range at OFC.

The development comes in line with the success of the
first products in the Firebird range. Launched last September, the Firebird
range features programmable 4-channel polarization controller that gives
customers a plug and play” capability to manage polarization issues.

The polarization scrambling module, designed for
integration into polarization test and measurement equipment, and the interface
module for our EPC controller represents the next step along our roadmap to
realize a series of high quality module and instrument products,” said Dean
Giles, operations director of Phoenix Photonics.

The company will use the same Firebird technology
developed for the 4-channel controller. The new compact Polarization Scrambler
module is pre-programmed to provide random or scanned polarization for any
input state requiring only a simple DC bias. The EPC interface enables direct
PC control of the EPC polarization controller.

At the event, Phoenix will display a range of
polarization products in conjunction with new components that utilize all-fiber
technology to stretch the operational wavelength, and fiber type.

Phoenix is a technology partner in the 7th Framework EU
funded project MODE-GAP, so it will also deploy the technologies developed from
the project including LP01 to LP11 tunable mechanical and in-fiber LPG Mode Converters
and 2 micron coupler and polarization control components.
