Gao launches Extreme-compatible 10GBASE-SR XENPAK transceiver

Gao Comm Inc of Toronto, Canada has launched an Extreme-compatible 10GBASE-SR XENPAK transceiver, which can be used in switches and modules that support XENPAK transceivers.

The model C018XX01 is a fully integrated 10.3Gb/s optical transceiver module that consists of an 850nm-wavelength optical transmitter and receiver, XAUI interface, and mux and demux with clock and data recovery (CDR). It is hot Z-pluggable and features up to 10.3GBd bi-directional data links and RoHS compliance.

The transceiver uses an 850nm vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) to achieve a transmission distance of up to 300m over 50/125 micron multi-mode fiber. It also allows for MDIO and DOM and has SC connectors. In addition, the transceiver is compliant with XENPAK multi-source agreement (MSA) Rev 3.0. Its optical interface is compliant with IEEE802.3ae and 10GBASE-SR.

The 10GBASE-SR XENPAK transceiver belongs to GAO’s family of Extreme compatible transceivers. This line includes a wide variety of transceivers such as its Extreme-compatible 10GBASE-ER XENPAK transceiver, which use a cooled 1550nm externally modulated laser (EML) to achieve a transmission distance of up to 40km over standard single-mode fiber. The line also includes an Extreme-compatible 1000Base-LX GBIC transceiver, which consists of two sections: the transmitter section incorporates a Fabry-Perot (FP) laser diode, and the receiver section uses an integrated InGaAs detector preamplifier (IDP) mounted in an optical header and a limiting post-amplifier IC.
