NeoPhotonics samples dual-rate 100G LR4 CFP2 for client-side applications

NeoPhotonics Corp of San Jose, CA, a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of both indium phosphide (InP) and silica-on-silicon photonic integrated circuit (PIC)-based modules and subsystems for high-speed communications networks, has announced sample availability of its dual-rate 100G LR4 CFP2 transceiver module for client-side applications.

The 100G LR4 CFP2 requires less than half the power and is half the size of the existing 100G LR4 CFP form factor, making it an attractive form factor for bandwidth-hungry data-center applications where both face-plate port density and lower electrical power are highly desired, says NeoPhotonics.

The 100G LR4 CFP2 transceiver is designed to fully comply with the IEEE 802.3ba 100GBASE-LR4 standard for links up to 10km and also supports the higher OTU4 datarate for telecom applications. It utilizes a 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter based on NeoPhotonics’ proven high-volume manufacturing platform for 28G electro-absorption modulator laser (EML) lasers and drivers, which are designed to meet stringent OTU-4 optical performance requirements.

“The introduction of our second 100G client transceiver module underlines our commitment to the ultra-high-speed segment of the transceiver market,” says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks.

In booth 1815 at the Optical Fiber Communications exposition (OFC 2014) in San Francisco (11-13 March), NeoPhotonics is showcasing its 100G client transceivers alongside its existing product portfolio, including intradyne coherent receivers and narrow-linewidth tunable lasers for 100G coherent communications, as well as an extensive line of next-generation transceivers for access networks.
