Finisar 100G SWDM4 QSFP28 optics enter production

Finisar announced that it is in full production of its 100G shortwave wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) optical transceiver, which is compliant with the 100G SWDM4 specification defined by the SWDM multi-source agreement (MSA).

The pluggable QSFP28 transceiver is the first mass-produced module capable of transmitting 100Gb/s over a pair of multimode fibres, thus enabling users to upgrade their systems from 10 Gigabit Ethernet to 100 Gigabit Ethernet without changing their data centre cabling.

Champion ONE launches Bi-Di CWDM SFP transceivers

Champion ONE, a supplier of standards-based compatible transceivers, has announced general availability of its new 2.5Gb/s bidirectional (bi-di) coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) SFP hot-pluggable transceivers.

This new transceiver supports SONET OC-48, 2G Fibre Channel, 2.4G Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI), and Gigabit Ethernet. For CPRI applications, the bi-di transceiver can support an operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.

Oclaro unveils 64Gbaud components for 400G and 600G transmission

At ECOC 2017 in Sweden, Oclaro unveiled photonic integrated coherent transmitters (ICTs) and intradyne coherent receiver (ICRs) that enable optical transmission speeds up to 600Gb/s. Both products support baud rates up to 64Gbaud and complex modulation schemes up to 64-QAM.

These high-performance components can be configured for data rates from 100Gb/s to 600Gb/s, enabling customers to build modules supporting a variety of network applications from data centre interconnect (DCI) to ultra-long-haul transmission.

Inphi samples M200 ultra-low power 200G coherent DSP

Semiconductor developer Inphi is sampling the M200, an ultra-low power and high-performance digital signal processor (DSP) supporting 100G and 200G data rates for coherent optical modules.

The M200 is the first member of Inphi’s 16nm LightSpeed-III family of SoC devices, from the company’s acquisition of ClariPhy.

HiLight releases 11.3G CMOS TIA optimised for APDs

HiLight Semiconductor has announced the production release of the HLR10G1, a 11.3Gb/s CMOS transimpedance amplifier (TIA) designed to provide best-in-class sensitivity when used with 10Gb/s avalanche photodiodes (APDs).

Manufactured on 12-inch wafers, the HLR10G1 is ideally positioned to meet the high-volume, low-cost, high-performance requirements of the 10G PON market, which should start to ramp in 2017, the company contends.

Macom presents complete chipset for 10G PON deployments

Macom Technology Solutions has announced what it believes is the industry’s first and only complete chipset for 10Gb/s passive optical network (PON) applications.

The availability of all products from the same supplier will accelerate the deployment of 10G PON systems by make it easier and more cost-effective for customers to integrate the various parts when designing and building optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network unit (ONU) equipment.

ProLabs launches range of Green 100G transceivers

Compatible transceiver supplier ProLabs has unveiled the first product in a new line of ‘Green’ optical transceivers, which consume 30 per cent less power than traditional devices while offering the same great performance.

MACOM's 100G Single Lambda Solution leverages the company's 53 Gbaud PAM-4 technology to deliver 100G throughput over a single wavelength.

MACOM unveils end-to-end 100G single-lambda portfolio

Macom Technology Solutions has unveiled what it claims is the industry’s first complete 100G single lambda solution for cloud data centre optical interconnects that promises unprecedented system density at even lower cost per bit.

The availability of a complete set of products from a single supplier will enable customers to quickly and easily integrate those components, and get to market faster with the next-generation of 100G interconnects.

Champion ONE unveils 25G SFP28 SR and LR transceivers

Optical transceiver supplier Champion ONE has announced general availability of a new range of 25G SFP28 hot-pluggable transceivers for server and wireless applications. The new modules are part of the company’s Passport portfolio of compatible transceivers.
