Comprehensive components for telecom and datacom
Lumentum supplies optical photo detectors and receivers for fiberoptic telecommunications and cable television networks. WDM products use receivers for each channel at both ends of a fiberoptic link, as wavelength translation is required. Photo detectors work throughout a network to monitor a variety of characteristics including power levels and channel count. Positive intrinsic negative (PIN) and avalanche photodiodes (APD) offer data rates from 155 Mbps to 10G. Models are available with transimpedance amplifiers (TIA), auto gain control, high gain, high sensitivity, and with several package and connector options. Analog receivers are also available for forward path or return path CATV.
