Boston Applied Technologies Incorporated
Develops Low Voltage VOAs

Woburn, MA, November 1, 2006 - Boston Applied Technologies, Incorporated (BATi), a leading manufacturer in variable optical attenuation and modulation technology, added high performance, lower driving voltage Variable Optical Attenuators (VOA) into its existing VOA catalog.

As one of well-known VOA manufacturers in the world, BATi continues to developing new VOA products based on the patented proprietary OptoCeramicTM technology platform. By utilizing the high electro-optic coefficient material, BATi's VOA has all-solid state structure with no moving parts. BATi's VOA is ease to use for both fiber-based systems and free-space applications.

The newly developed low-voltage VOA provides even faster speed, wider dynamic range, low insertion loss, low polarization dependence loss and the best reliability in a compact package. The power consumption of this new product is only half of those required in older versions.

BATi's low-voltage VOAs will greatly increase the flexibility of control system design and optical system integration.
