Santec Corporation is pleased to announce the general availability of its ultra-compact, fibre pigtailed tunable filter, MTF-1.  The 3 x 5 x 7 mm filter is the world’s smallest and is designed for integration into compact CFP2-ACO and CFP2-DCO transceiver modules.   It is tuneable over the full telecom C-band with a filter bandwidth of 150 GHz (1.2 nm).  The filter bandwidth is customizable up to 500 GHz.  Santec’s MTF-1 uses a MEMS mirror as its tuning mechanism which provides low power, vibration insensitive operation with 12 volt control.
