Product description

This module is ideal for applications where high bandwidth, mode stability, low relative intensity noise (RIN), and stable output power are needed.

The AA0701 series contains a thermoelectric cooler, thermistor, back facet monitor detector, and bias tee. The module is designed and built using our high-reliability platform for defense components.

Key features

  • High Bandwidth
  • Build in isolator
  • Hermetically Sealed
  • Built-in TEC, thermistor and monitor detector
  • Ruggedized for shock and vibration
