Mintera ships first small-form-factor 40Gb/s DWDM DPSK module

Mintera Corp of Acton, MA, USA, which makes high-bit-rate optical transport sub-systems, is claiming the industry’s first shipment of a small-form-factor 40Gb/s DWDM DPSK transceiver module. The MI 7000XM Adaptive-DPSK product delivers industry leading optical performance in a standard 3.5” x 4.5” 300-pin package.

"This shipment signals the next phase in 40Gb/s evolution with the first delivery of a new generation of 40Gb/s DWDM modules,” says president & CEO Terry Unter. The MI 7000XM is half the size and dissipates half the power of previous-generation DWDM 40Gb/s 300-pin modules.

The patent-pending Adaptive-DPSK technology enables 40Gb/s transport on 50GHz-channel-spaced systems and transmission over agile reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) networks without compromising critical ultra-long-haul (ULH) reach. The unit maintains the same industry-standard interfaces as its MI 4000XM predecessor, enabling existing customers to use the MI 7000XM module on line cards designed for the MI 4000XM. Such backward compatibility enables users to bring the latest technology to market rapidly without incurring significant development costs, the firm claims.
