The Scorpion Amplet MMP-HP7020 ultracompact, high-power optical amplifier module from NP Photonics offsets signal loss created by DWDM and optical conditioning devices. The high-gain, low-noise device features 16-dBm total output and provides up to 20 dB of gain across the C-band. It has a 90 x 70 x 12-mm MSA-compliant footprint. The amplifier module also generates less than 5.5 dB of noise. Embedded monitoring electronics and a midstage access option are included. The module can be customized to a two-port device with the same small footprint.
