Oclaro demonstrates 400G CFP8 module at OFC 2017

Oclaro has announced sampling of a 400G CFP8 optical transceiver to support the ultra-high bandwidth requirements of core routers and optical transport applications. Oclaro held a live demo of the CFP8 at its booth #2747 at OFC 2017.

Delivering four times more bandwidth than existing 100G CFP-family devices in a small and compact footprint, the device operates with eight lasers using 50Gb/s per channel and PAM4.

Molex shows high-density optical EMI shielding adapters

When optics moves onto the line card, systems developers need to find ways to manage electromagnetic interference (EMI) through the front panel. That’s where Molex’s high-density optical EMI shielding adapters come in. The company displayed its new line of multi-port EMI adapters with internal laser protection shutters on its booth, 3218, at OFC 2017, on 21–23 March in Los Angeles.

Lumentum unveils Trueflex Nano small form factor WSS

Lumentum has added a small form factor TrueFlex Nano 1x9 wavelength-selective switch (WSS) to its portfolio for reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) applications.

Thinner than its predecessor, the new TrueFlex Nano 1x9 WSS is small enough to fit into a single-slot line card in optical networking systems. This next-generation device is 42 per cent smaller than conventional products and requires less operating power, the company claims.

NeoPhotonics demos 600G CFP2-ACO coherent module

Components and subsystems developer NeoPhotonics will demonstrate its pluggable coherent CFP2-ACO module designed for single-wavelength transmission at 400G and beyond at OFC 2017 in Los Angeles, on 21–23 March.

II-VI unveils 3-pin 980nm uncooled micro-pump laser module

II‐VI has announced an uncooled 980nm pump laser module in a compact 3-pin micro-format package designed to meet the stringent reliability and power-efficiency requirements of ultra-compact amplification in current and next-generation high-bit-rate optical transceivers. 

Effect Photonics unveils low-cost tunable laser system-on-chip

Effect Photonics has announced a new, full-band tunable optical system-on-chip designed to meet the requirements of the expanding data centre interconnect (DCI) market.

Last year the company introduced a 100G transceiver capable of 80km reach using direct-detect technology (Going without gold: Effect Photonics unveils first products). This year it’s branching out into building blocks for coherent optical modules.

Microsemi unveils processor for scalable OTN-based fronthaul

Chip maker Microsemi has announced a new mobile fronthaul product, based on its DIGI-G4 family of Optical Transport Network (OTN) processors, that will enable high-capacity mobile fronthaul connectivity for converged 4G and 5G centralised radio access networks (C-RANs).
