Overview

NeoPhotonics Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG) is an integrated PLC component that multiplexes or demultiplexes 40, 44, 80, or 96 channels onto a single fiber. MSA-standard AWGs follow the mechanical and electrical requirements of the Multi Source Agreement for Thermally-stabilized AWG Modules. Customers can utilize a single-board design to accommodate AWGs from multiple vendors. NeoPhotonics offers a full line of MSA AWGs with channel spacings of 50 GHz and 100 GHz, covering the C and L Bands.
