PRODUCT

High Dynamic Range ICR

NeoPhotonics Corporation and Inphi Corporation have started shipping a new High Dynamic Range-Integrated Coherent Receiver (HD-ICR) in production volume to their customers. The HD-ICR couples the high dynamic range, low noise, and high input current handling capabilities of the Inphi IN3250TA TIA with the high sensitivity of the NeoPhotonics photodiodes and is designed to deliver the performance necessary for next generation 100G ' colourless' coherent transmission systems.
