Kaiam, a developer of high-performance datacom optical transceivers, has launched LightScale2, an upgraded optical integration platform enabling ‘unprecedented’ performance and scalability. The company is currently sampling CWDM4 100G QSFP28s modules based on this architecture.
Optical subsystems developer Kaiam has announced availability of its 100Gb/s QSFP28 transceiver. The uncooled CWDM transceiver is aimed at optical modules based on the CWDM4 and CLR4 multi-source agreements (MSA) for low-cost data centre applications.
Both the transceiver and 4x25Gb/s transmitter and receiver optical sub-assemblies (TOSA/ROSAs) are now sampling to select customers with volume production expected later in the year.
