MAFA 1000 Series EDFA DATASHEET | OCTOBER 2013 FIBER OPTICS MAFA 1000 Series Erbium Doped Fiber Micro Amplifier EMCORE’s MAFA 1000 Series Erbium Doped Fiber micro Amplifier (μEDFA) Gain Block Module is an ideal building block for OEM system integrators. The family of MAFA 1000 EDFA Gain Blocks is designed to meet the most demanding noise performance requirements of fiber optic communications and control systems, and performs all the functions required of an optical amplifier for system integration. MAFA 1000 series EDFA Gain Blocks provide input and output optical isolation 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. Applications CATV Systems Long Distance RF/Microwave Fiber Optic Communication Links Sensing and Control Systems High Performance Supertrunking Links High Power Distribution Networks Redundanct Ring Architectures FTTx Networks The MAFA 1000 series EDFA Gain Blocks also provide monitors and associated alarms for all critical operating parameters. The optical output of the MAFA 1000 series EDFA Gain Blocks can be split into multiple ports by optional external splitter. Optional back reflection monitoring feature enables safe output optical power managing. The compact mechanical footprint of the MAFA 1000 allows using this unit to be installed in small space environments.
