Dither-less Automated Modulator Bias Controller

Unlike classical dither signal based bias controllers, the MBC-AN-LAB does not superimpose any tone (dither) signal to the optical modulated wave. They are designed for application where such a tone signal is not desired and typically for analog applications where a high purity carrier is required. They are easy to implement, fully automated with its autoset function. The MBC-AN-LAB is proposed in a compact and smart package.
