EAU amplifier

EAU Series

Amplifier Modules

The EAU Series of low-noise, high performance erbium doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs) are the ideal building blocks for FTTH and CATV equipment manufacturers requiring C-band or L-band optical amplification. IPG’s EAU Series modules are board-mountable EDFAs designed for single optical channel systems. With the EAU Series, OEMs can accelerate time to market and offer leading-edge multiport EDFA solutions that are ideal for today’s FTTH applications.
