The Kaiam Athermal AWG (Arrayed Waveguide Grating) is a fully passive device. It has no control electronics and consumes no electrical power. The rugged design contains no moving parts, and the optical performance is guaranteed from -5ºC to 70ºC for Central Office and -40ºC to 70ºC for Remote Node applications.
Optimized for WDM-PON applications, this AAWG is configured for dual band operation. 40 C-band channels and 40 L-band channels are supported simultaneously, as illustrated in the data sheet. In the ‘downstream’ direction the device will spatially separate a stream of channels from a single mode input fiber into 40 different output fibers each corresponding to an individual channel in one of the specified wavelength bands. In the ‘upstream’ direction the reverse process will occur simultaneously for channels in the second wavelength band.
