VI Systems has introduced the R50-1300 receiver optical subassembly (ROSA), which it claims is the first to provide data rates of up to 50Gb/s for multimode-fibre-coupled receiver modules. The target applications are short-reach optical transceivers and systems inside data centres.

At the OFC Exhibition next week, VI Systems will present a set of transmitter and receiver optical subassemblies (TOSA/ROSA) and the related building blocks for the next generation of 25 Gigabit Ethernet short-reach optical transceivers.
The components on display include the 25Gb/s TOSA with part number T25-850 and 25Gb/s ROSA with part number R25-850. VI Systems say these building blocks will enable a new generation of short-reach 25 Gigabit Ethernet optical receivers in a high-performance small form factor SFP28 package or for on-board assemblies.
