PLC Splitter

Showing 1–0 of 0 results

Operating Principle: PLC splitters utilize a planar lightwave circuit chip composed of silica glass or other waveguide materials. The chip contains a network of waveguides that divide or combine optical signals based on the desired splitting ratio. Input optical signals are coupled into the chip, where they undergo splitting or combining to distribute power among multiple output ports.

Types of Splitters: PLC splitters are available in single-mode and multimode variants, catering to different fiber types and network requirements. They come in various splitting ratios, such as 1:2, 1:4, 1:8, 1:16, and beyond, allowing for flexible deployment in diverse network architectures.

Applications: PLC splitters find widespread use in passive optical networks (PONs), fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks, cable television (CATV) systems, and other communication applications. They enable efficient signal distribution from central offices to multiple subscribers, facilitating cost-effective network deployments.
