Optical amplifiers - Part 2: Single channel applications - Performance specification template

IEC 61291-2:2012 applies to single channel optical amplifier (OA) devices to be used in digital applications. For multichannel applications, use IEC 61291, Part 4. The object of this performance specification template is to provide a frame for the preparation of detail specifications on the performances of single channel OA devices to be used in digital applications. This edition constitutes a minor update through clarification that the scope is for single channel optical amplifiers, and that pump leakage parameters do not apply to semiconductor optical amplifiers.

IEC 61291-2:2016 fournit un modèle de spécifications de performances qui s’applique aux amplificateurs optiques (AO) destinés à être utilisés dans le cadre d’applications à un seul canal. Les applications multicanaux sont couvertes dans l’IEC 61291‑4. L’objet de ce modèle de spécifications de performances est de fournir une trame pour l’établissement de normes de performances et/ou de spécifications de produit relatives aux performances des dispositifs AO destinés à être utilisés dans le cadre d’applications à un seul canal. D’autres spécifications telles que les valeurs assignées, les conditions de fonctionnement, les essais et les critères de succès/défaillance peuvent être incluses dans les normes de performances ou les spécifications de produit, en plus des exigences basées sur ce modèle de spécifications de performances. Les rédacteurs de spécifications de produit peuvent ajouter des paramètres et/ou des groupes de paramètres à ces spécifications pour des applications particulières. Cependant, il convient que les rédacteurs de spécifications de produit ne suppriment pas les paramètres aux spécifications précisées dans la présente norme. Cette quatrième édition annule et remplace la troisième édition parue en 2012. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. La présente édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l’édition précédente: - le titre de la présente norme "applications numériques" est remplacé par "applications à un seul canal"; - le domaine d’application a été modifié et, par conséquent, les titres des tableaux ont été changés; - les termes et définitions ont été révisés; - trois tableaux donnant la liste minimale de paramètres applicables aux amplificateurs de puissance, préamplificateurs et amplificateurs de ligne basés sur des composants SOA (amplificateur optique à semiconducteur) ont été ajoutés; - les paramètres transitoires ont été ajoutés à la liste minimale de paramètres applicables aux préamplificateurs et amplificateurs de ligne basés sur un module OFA (amplificateur à fibres optiques).

Optični ojačevalniki - 2. del: Enokanalne aplikacije - Specifikacijska predloga delovanja (IEC 61291-2:2016)

Standard IEC 61291-2:2012 se uporablja za naprave z enokanalnim optičnim ojačevalnikom (OA), ki se uporabljajo za digitalne aplikacije. Za večkanalne aplikacije se uporablja standard IEC 61291, del 4. Cilj te specifikacijske predloge delovanja je zagotoviti okvir za pripravo podrobnih specifikacij za delovanje naprav z enokanalnim optičnim ojačevalnikom, ki se uporabljajo za digitalne aplikacije. Ta izdaja je manjša posodobitev na podlagi pojasnila, da področje uporabe velja za enokanalne optične ojačevalnike in da se parametri izpustov črpalke ne uporabljajo za polprevodniške optične ojačevalnike.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61291-2 has been prepared by subcommittee 86C: Fibre optic

systems and active devices, of IEC technical committee 86: Fibre optics.

This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2012. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:

a) the title of this standard has been changed from digital applications to single channel

applications;

b) the scope has been changed and, as a result, the titles of tables have been changed;

c) Terms and definitions have been revised;
---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------

d) three tables regarding the minimum list of relevant parameters of power amplifiers, pre-

amplifiers and line amplifiers based on semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) components

have been added;

e) transient parameters have been added in the minimum list of relevant parameters of pre-

amplifiers and line amplifiers based on optical fibre amplifier (OFA) module.

INTRODUCTION

This International Standard is devoted to the subject of optical amplifiers. The technology of

optical amplifiers is still rapidly evolving, hence amendments and new additions to this

standard can be expected. Each abbreviation introduced in this standard is generally

explained in the text the first time it appears. However, for an easier understanding of the

whole text, a list of all abbreviations used in this standard is given in Clause 3.

Performance specification template
1 Scope

This part of IEC 61291 provides a performance specification template which applies to optical

amplifiers (OAs) to be used in single channel applications. Multichannel applications are

covered in IEC 61291-4.

The object of this performance specification template is to provide a frame for the preparation

of performance standards and/or product specifications on the performance of OA devices to

be used in single channel applications. In the performance standards or product specifications,

other specifications such as ratings, operating conditions, tests and pass/fail criteria could be

included in addition to the requirements based on this performance specification template.

Product specification writers may add specification parameters and/or groups of specification

parameters for particular applications. However, product specification writers should not

remove specification parameters specified in this standard.
