MAFA 2000 Series EDFA DATASHEET | AUGUST 2012 FIBER OPTICS MAFA 2000 Series Erbium Doped Fiber Micro Amplifier EMCORE’s MAFA 2000 Series Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) Gain Block Module is an ideal building block for OEM system integrators. The family of MAFA 2000 EDFA Gain Blocks is designed to meet the most demanding noise performance requirements of high performance networks, and performs all the functions required of an optical amplifier for system integration. Applications Microwave and RF Optical Fiber Distribution Systems EW Systems Free Space Optical Communications DWDM Networks Video and Data Transport Networks MAFA2000 series EDFA Gain Blocks provide optical isolation on the input and output of the gain block for stable, low noise operation. The input and output optical signal power levels are detected for monitoring and control. The input optical signal is amplified with active gain control for a constant output power level or with active output power control for constant gain mode operation. The MAFA 2000 series EDFA Gain Blocks also provide monitors and associated alarms for all critical operating parameters. The optical output of the MAFA 2000 series EDFA Gain Blocks also provide monitors and associated alarms for all vital characteristics. The optical output of the MAFA 2000 series EDFA Gain Blocks can be split into multiple ports by an optional external splitter.

MAFA 2000 Series EDFA FIBER OPTICS DATASHEET | AUGUST 2012 Compliance and Reliability Information FCC: Subpart B. Part 15 class “A”: Unintentional Radiators EN 55013: Sound and Television Broadcast receivers and associated equipment – Radio disturbance characteristics- limits and methods of measurements – Electric Field Radiation Emissions (2001) Fit Rate: 60% level of confidence 670 @ 25C (14-23 dBm EDFA) Fit Rate: 60% of level of confidence 962 @ 40C (24-27 dBm EDFA) Note: It has been determined that recent design changes with the DB25 connector make necessary the re-certification of the MAFA2000 for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) per EN 61000-4-3. Prior to this certification, it is possible that if the MAFA2000 is exposed to electromagnetic interference (EMI) it may cause unintended changes in the behavior of the unit. In addition to possible improper operation, there are safety implications to consider as well. It is recommended that users of this product do so for evaluation purposes only, and exercise caution. At a minimum, it is recommended that a metallic shielded cable be used to connect to the DB25 connector to minimize risk. Other methods of reducing potential EMI such as testing unit far away from electromagnetic radiators, and in a metallic enclosure (such as the PONA2100 series) is highly recommended. Users of this product do so at their own risk.
