FiberStore Ships Hundred Thousands MEMS Variable Optical Attenuator

FiberStore annouces to have shipped hundreds thousands of MEMS Variable Optical Attenuator globally over the last year.

Bellevue, WA, November 08, 2013 --( FiberStore, A leading manufacturer of optical components for the fiber optics and telecommunications industries, announces it has shipped more than 3 hundred thousand MEMS based variable optical attenuators over the last year.

MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) based Variable Optical Attenuators are integrated in complex optical modules operating up to 100 GBits. They continuously gain market share over competing traditional technologies in optical networks applications ranging from optical modules protection to the growing segments of power management. The MEMS variable optical attenuators (VOAs) are designed for latest optical network systems by providing low insertion loss, a wide attenuation range, flat wavelength dependence and low polarization dependence loss. The operating voltage only needs less than 5V for driving up to maximum attenuation range.

Besides, FiberStore has also supplied multiple customers from the beginning of its innovative photonic road map up to full product release, with its patented design MEMS chip, it build a track record for catering to the needs of the optical community and provide state-of-the-art products in production.

"FiberStore is the No. 1 supplier of optical MEMS VOA and chips in optical telecom markets, a segment growing at an impressive CAGR of 20% from 2010 to 2015, as MEMS-based VOAs increasingly displace non-MEMS solutions," said Joseph Dam, director and principal analyst for MEMS.

FiberStore's Variable Optical Attenuator dies have been designed to fit most packaging technologies available on the market and in closed loop mode exhibit superior optical power attenuation stability. FiberStore's full complement of thermally and electrostatically actuated Optical Attenuators is available today for sampling or production shipments.

Any additional specifications, such as the type of connectors (i.e. FC or SC, UPC or APC) and details for VOA products can be obtained by contacting FiberStore at or by calling our office in Washington. USA at +1 (206) 227 9282
