Laser Components has announced the introduction of the MBC-AN series of modular bias controllers from Photline Technologies. The range is designed for analogue applications.

According to Photline Technologies, the MBC-AN series controllers are suitable for stabilising analogue modulators and ensuring a stable operation over time and environmental conditions when a high-purity optical carrier is required.

Modulator bias controllers are used to lock the operating point of Mach-Zehnder modulators and are necessary to compensate for the drift caused by ageing and changes in environmental conditions.

Key information

  • MBC-AN series controllers do not superimpose any tone signal to the optical modulated signal.
  • They are designed to lock the operating point of modulators for applications where such a tone signal is not desired.
  • They are typically used in analogue applications such as RFoF, remote antenna and radar links.
  • The controllers are compatible with all Photline Technologies analogue modulators.
