Woburn, MA, August 25, 2004 - Boston Applied Technologies Incorporated (BATI), a leading developer of light intensity and polarization management products, today announced the release of a new member of the Eclipse™ VOA family -- Variable Add/Drop Module, or VADM. The Eclipse™ VADM is an integration of optical add/drop module (OADM) and Eclipse™ high speed VOA. It controls the optical power of the wavelength channel being added or dropped in the same module. Based on the OptoCeramicTM technology platform, the Eclipse™ VADM features excellent optical characteristics, including low insertion loss, low polarization dependent loss (PDL), wide dynamic range, high channel isolation, and high speed power adjustment. This device contains no moving parts and has the same reliability as other members in the VOA family. It is an ideal device for Variable Multiplexer (VMUX) or Variable DeMultiplexer (VDEMUX).
