We’re proud to be exhibiting at ECOC 2011, and we hope to see you there!


Date: 2011/9/19-21
Location: PALEXPO SA, Geneva Switzerland
Booth: #1254

Be sure to visit us at Booth#1254, where we’ll be introducing our high speed optical component test systems and LCOS based WaveProcessorTM Arrays (WPA) for Next Generation ROADM. It is capable of measuring samples using demo unit.

Swept Test System STS-510

The Santec Swept Test System, STS-510, has been developed to streamline photonic testing, providing a complete solution where high-speed analysis with high resolution and accuracy is key. Combining Santec’s 5th generation tunable laser, TSL-510, with a Santec Swept Processing Unit SPU-100 and custom software the complete STS-510 system optimizes WDL measurement for use in both R&D and production environments.

  • Accurate WDL characteristics measurement (high power repeatability <+/-0.02dB))
  • Automatic normalization of laser source power
  • High wavelength resolution & accuracy
  • Reduced measurement time
  • Supporting LabVIEW control software
  • Optical components and modules characterization
  • Photonic material characterization

LCOS based WaveProcessorTM Arrays (WPA)

Santec WPA is an array WaveProcessorTM based on LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon). The WaveProcessorTM has one input port from which the input optical signals are intelligently, spectrally processed by the LCOS, and one output port. The WaveProcessorTM Arrays (WPA) are integrated multiple ports type of the WaveProcessorTM. Each port is independently managed by the command-based user controls. The WPA based on LCOS is the first commercial product of its kind in the world. The WPA will provide a drastic footprint downsizing in the next generation ROADM.

  • 4×4 WXC (4 degree, 4 color add/drop ports)
  • Upgradable wave-processing in next generation ROADM
  • Tunable filters for colorless receivers

WaveProcessorTM WPA-900

The WPA-900 is a system programmable to generate arbitrary filter shapes with santec’s unique LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) technology. It can be used as an optical equalizer for high-speed signals, as an adaptive DWDM channel filtering, or as a flexible test and measurement system.

  • Programmable arbitrary spectral shaping
  • Attenuation and bandwidth variable for each individual ITU-T grids
  • Excellent frequency resolution, 1GHz (typ.)
  • Optical equalizer for high-speed optical signals
  • 40Gb/s, 100Gb/s transmission test

Compact&Cost Effective Tunable Laser WSL-100

The WSL-100 is a compact and cost effective tunable laser source for use in WDM systems and optical measurement applications. This laser is tuned over C-band or L-band, covering a 38nm tuning range with 25 or 50 GHz channel spacing to the ITU-T grid. This laser can be controlled either by using the buttons on the front panel, by using GPIB interface or by using USB interface.

  • Tunable over C-band or L-band
  • 25 or 50GHz ITU-T grid tuning
  • High wavelength accuracy and stability with internal wavelength locker
  • High optical power (up to 13dBm)
  • Low Relative Intensity Noise (RIN)
  • GPIB interfaces with the industry standard SCPI command
