Oclaro expands tunable product portfolio with zero-chirp TXFP

Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA, which makes optical communications and laser components, modules and subsystems, has announced the production release of a zero-chirp full-band tunable XFP (TXFP) that delivers full 300-pin equivalent performance in a small, pluggable MSA (multi-source agreement) footprint with low power consumption.

The firm is showcasing its tunable laser portfolio at the European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communications (ECOC 2011) in Geneva, Switzerland (19–21 September). “Our customers need tunable lasers in a variety of formats, and our goal is to be the one-stop shop with the solutions that match their evolving product requirements,” says Jim Haynes, president & general manager of Oclaro’s Photonic Components business unit.

Oclaro’s product portfolio of tunable lasers includes continuous-wave tunable laser assemblies, tunable transmitter assemblies, MSA 300-pin 10Gbps SFF transponders, 40Gbps tunable transponders, tunable pluggable transceivers, and tunable XFP transceivers in both negative-chirp and zero-chirp form for the C- and L-bands.

Oclaro offers the zero-chirp TXFP in various configurations, including APD or PiN Rx options. Along with the firm’s negative-chirp TXFP and its first-generation tunable pluggable transceivers, users now have the option to migrate all 10Gbps DWDM links to a pluggable form factor without compromising on system performance. The new zero-chirp tunable XFP is fully qualified and released to production.

Oclaro notes that it continues to enhance 10Gbps DWDM links by announcing high-efficiency versions of TXFPs for low power dissipation and high-temperature environments, as well as preparing for the next generation of small-form-factor pluggable formats.
