PLC Splitter Wafers & Chips 1xN Series

PLC splitters are key components in fiber networks. Based on planar light wave circuit (PLC) technology, they provide a robust and flexible technology platform for the sophisticated optical components required by next-generation intelligent networks.

SANWA’s 1xN PLC splitters use plasma chemical vapor deposition (P-CVD) and patented fabrication process to offer stable performance and high reliability with guaranteed specifications that exceed Telcordia requirements. They are available in bare fiber, blockless packages, and with different types of fiber connectors and adapters.

1. Low insertion loss

The insertion loss of PLC splitter is very low, which can reduce the total power loss in optical fiber link. This is mainly due to the polarization maintaining function.

The splitter is a passive component that distributes the optical signal to multiple users. It consists of a splitting chip, an input and output fiber array and a sealing package.

The splitter is a key part of a PON system PLC Splitter Wafers & Chips 1xN Series to satisfy many demanders for receiving light signals at the same time. It can be used for both centralized and cascade distribution.

2. Low return loss

PLC Splitter is a passive optical device that realizes signal power splitting in the optical fiber network. It offers high performance, stability and reliability. Its specifications meet and exceed Telcordia requirements.

SANWA PLC splitters feature low return loss, which is the measure of how much power in the output signal is lost in the path between the input port and the output port. This is especially important for applications that require high levels of signal management. Moreover, they can provide significant cost savings due to reduced connector losses.

3. High return loss

PLC splitters are micro-optical devices that use planar lightwave circuit technology to separate or combine optical signals. They consist of a silica glass waveguide circuit chip aligned with a V-groove fiber array using ribbon fiber.

They are used in EPON and GPON to realize optical signal power management. They offer high channel-to-channel uniformity and meet Telcordia 1209 reliability requirements.

Tarluz offers a full range of 1xN PLC splitters with varying specifications including insertion loss, polarization-dependent loss and return loss. We also provide bare and blockless PLC splitters with different fiber connectors and types.

4. Low polarization dependent loss

PLC Splitter is an integrated waveguide optical power distribution device based on quartz substrate. It can divide the optical signal evenly and efficiently with low polarization dependent loss.

SANWA offers a wide range of PLC Splitter with splitting ratio 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and 32x. They are widely used in FTTH access mode corridor boxes and outdoor PON splitters. They are pluggable with LC adapters/connectors for easy installation and replacement. They are Internet of things also compact in size and can be mounted in 19” cabinets to meet the high-density cabling needs.

5. Low back reflection

PLC splitters are passive devices used to route multiple optical signals in a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network. They connect the Optical Line Terminal (OLT) at the central office to multiple end users via distribution fibers. PLC splitters are characterized by low insertion loss and excess loss, as well as high channel-to-channel uniformity.

Bare fiber & blockless PLC splitter, ABS type PLC splitter with fan-out kits, LGX box PLC splitter, 1U rack mount PLC splitter are available for different configurations and demands. They meet Telcordia GR-1221 and GR-1209 reliability requirements.

6. High channel-to-channel uniformity

The PLC splitter is one of the most important components in the passive optical network. It evenly distributes the optical signal from a single input into multiple output ports. It can be used for centralized or cascade distribution.

The three main factors that affect the quality of a PLC splitter are the fibre array for input and output and the chip. The quality of these three components determine whether the PLC splitter can work stably and normally.

To ensure high quality, the fibre array and chip are aligned using a goniometer stage before they are bonded together with epoxy. The assembly is then cured at a controlled temperature.

7. High reliability

PLC splitters are the passive component that connects a CO with distribution fibers and multiple ONUs. Compared to fused biconical tapered (FBT) optical splitters, PLC technology provides lower insertion loss per port and splitting-ratio nonuniformity.

PLC splitters consist of a splitting waveguide chip with input and output optical fiber arrays coupled to it on both ends, which are then bonded together and packaged. This design reduces the complexity of manufacturing and assembly, providing a high reliability compared to FBT splitters. This is essential for FTTR, where splitters with non-uniform splitting ratio are often used.

8. Small form factor

The 1xN PLC splitter series uses silica optical waveguide technology and provides a wide operating wavelength range, good channel-to-channel uniformity, and a small form factor. It is widely used in GPON and future PON networks to realize passive optical power management.

The 1xN PLC optical splitter is available in a variety of packages, such as bare fiber type, blockless type, cassette type, LGX box type, and rack-mount type. All of these products meet Telcordia 1209 and 1221 reliability requirements. They can be easily installed in a variety of enclosure types, including terminal boxes and cabinets.

9. Wide operating wavelength range

In FTTH networks, PLC splitters are used to realize centralized or cascaded optical signal power management. They are installed between an Optical Line Terminal (OLT) in the central office and an Optical Network Unit or ONU near the end users.

SENKO offers 1xN PLC splitters with guaranteed performance specifications and high reliability that surpass Telcordia requirements and are tailored for specific applications. They are available in multiple package types such as Bare fiber type, Blockless type, Cassette Type and LGX type. Various fan-out kits are also available with these products.

10. High return loss

PLC splitters are an essential passive component of optical fiber networks. They divide the incoming optical signal into numerous outputs at a specified ratio, helping users maximize the performance of their network circuits.

Return loss of a PLC splitter is defined as RL=-10lgPril/Pin, where Pril is the optical power at the output port of the PLC splitter and Pin is the optical power at the input port of the PLC splitter. Excess loss is caused by insertion loss of the PLC chip, fiber array nonuniformity and splitting ratio nonuniformity.
