Effect Photonics unveils low-cost tunable laser system-on-chip

Effect Photonics has announced a new, full-band tunable optical system-on-chip designed to meet the requirements of the expanding data centre interconnect (DCI) market.

Last year the company introduced a 100G transceiver capable of 80km reach using direct-detect technology (Going without gold: Effect Photonics unveils first products). This year it’s branching out into building blocks for coherent optical modules.
