Emcore announces Telcordia qualification and production release of tunable XFP transceiver

Emcore Corp of Albuquerque, NM, USA, which makes components, subsystems and systems for the fiber-optic and solar power markets, has announced the Telcordia qualification and production release of its tunable XFP (TXFP) transceiver.

“We have demonstrated that our technology exceeds the mandated industry robustness and reliability standards,” says Rob Stone, director of Emcore’s Telecom business unit. “We have been successful in our goal of enabling customers to replace their legacy 10Gb/s long-haul tunable interfaces with a more power- and size-efficient module, which improves both their operational and capital expenses,” he adds. 

The tunable XFP incorporates the latest ‘ClearLight’ generation of Emcore’s patented external cavity laser (ECL) technology, which has been deployed in worldwide fiber networks by multiple carriers since 2004. All active optical subcomponents are manufactured in-house, leveraging Emcore's core capability in wafer growth and fabrication. In addition to its current volume manufacturing location, Emcore will be adding additional capacity at its contract manufacturer over second-half 2011.
