NeoPhotonics announces general availability of dual-rate 100G CFP2 LR4 transceiver

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 the general availibility of low-power, dual-rate 100G CFP2 LR4 transceivers for telecom and datacom applications.

The 100G CFP2 LR4 requires less than half of the power as well as half of the size compared to 100G CFP form-factor transceivers, making it an attractive next-generation 100G module solution for bandwidth-hungry data-center applications where both port density and lower power are desired, says NeoPhotonics.

The 100G CFP2 LR4 transceiver is designed to fully comply with the IEEE 802.3 100GBASE-LR4 and CAUI-4 Electrical Interface as well as OTN OTU4 standards for link distances up to 10km. It also complies with CFP2 MSA (multi-source agreement)and MDIO functionality. The 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter is based on NeoPhotonics’ proven performance and high-volume manufacturing platform of 28G EML lasers and drivers, which enable best-in-class module performance, inter-operabability and ease of deployment, claims the firm.

“After serving the 100G market with our CFP product, we are pleased to add this second-generation form factor into our 100G portfolio,” says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks. “CFP2 is the first 100G interface that provides face-plate density advantages over 10G SFP+,” he adds. “Therefore we believe this new form factor, based on our industry-leading 28G EML laser technology, will provide additional value to the rapidly expanding 100G market in which maximum bandwith management is a necessity.”
