Press Releases

Finisar launched a new product family at this year’s OFC conference in San Diego, complementing its line of coherent components and Analog Coherent Optics (ACO) transceivers.  Called the Integrated Tunable Transmitter and Receiver Assembly (ITTRA), the new product family is heralded as the industry's smallest fully integrated coherent optics assembly.

Keysight Technologies has launched Test Asset Optimization Services, which the company says is the industry’s first integrated solution that measures in real-time, asset true utilisation and health.

Keysight’s Test Asset Optimization Services is designed to eliminate the need for companies to assign personnel to manually record when instruments are in use and making measurements. It aims to allow customers to improve return on investments by optimising capital and operating expenses to meet test demands in research and development through manufacturing.

The latest polarity testing solution from OptoTest – the OP415 polarity analyser is designed to efficiently test 24-fibre MTP/MPO cable assemblies, but it can also be easily configured for 8-fibre and 12-fibre testing.

It comes pre-loaded with 12-fibre and 24-fibre polarity types A, B, and C, plus the ability to create and store custom fibre mappings and channel configurations. Alternatively, the polarity analyser can learn polarity types from existing cables and store them for future use.

The MIL-83526 DM connector is the most recent product developed for harsh environments. It incorporates four termini based on DIAMOND's two-component ferrules, assembled with our Active Core Alignment (ACA) process for unparalleled optical performances. This connector is available for MM, SM (PC/APC) and small core single mode fibre, polarization-maintaining (PM) fibre, and other specialty fibre types. Furthermore, this connector can also include electrical contacts for hybrid E/O applications.

MRSI Systems’ recently launched MRSI-HVM3 die bonder system has entered a volume production phase, using advanced demand flow technology to satisfy worldwide customer demand.

Launched at the China International Optoelectronics Exposition (CIOE) in September last year, the first wave of configured machines was focused on Chip-on-Submount (CoS), Chip-on-Carrier (CoC), and Chip-on-Baseplate (CoB) and have been successfully installed in North America, Europe and Asia.

The new PXI optical test modules from Coherent Solutions and National Instruments (NI) include optical switches, optical-electrical converters, and variable optical attenuators, with more modules promised for release throughout the year.

Oclaro is sampling a suite of integrated optical components that enable transmission solutions up to 600 Gb/s per wavelength for long-haul, regional, metro and data centre interconnect applications.

Components in the portfolio include: a 64Gbaud micro-Intradyne Coherent Receiver (micro-ICR); 64Gbaud Integrated Coherent Transmitter (ICT); a 100kHz micro-integrated tunable laser assembly (micro-ITLA); 64Gbaud high-bandwidth co-packaged driver modulator (HB-CDM); and a high-bandwidth LiNbO3 polarisation multiplexed - quadrature Mach-Zehnder (PM-QMZ) modulator.

II‐VI Incorporated has introduced a new CTM 1450 high resolution optical channel monitor for flexible grid reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers (ROADMs).

Highly flexible ROADMs that enable bandwidth optimisation across the network with dynamic data rate selection and channel width allocation are essential for the efficient build out of the global optical transport infrastructure. The CTM 1450 monitor provides visibility into capacity allocation by monitoring the DWDM spectrum at the ingress and egress points of ROADM nodes.

APAT OE has released a new XGS-PON ONU SFP+ transceiver. Designed to meet the symmetrical 10-Gb/s transmission requirements of XGS-PON applications, the transceiver features a 1270-nm DFB laser and 1577-nm avalanche photo diode (APD).

The company’s updated product is complete with an SC/APC optical interface, and with two specifications – commercial and Industrial. The Rogue ONU judgment time can be set in milliseconds to seconds prior to delivery, and its report can be removed by software or hardware pin.

The American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics) and Analog Photonics (AP) have released the AP SUNY Process Design Kit v2.0a.
