TeraXion launching its first generation of packaged InP I-Q modulator

TeraXion Inc of Quebec City, Canada (which designs and manufactures optoelectronic components and modules for high-speed fiber-optic transmission networks, fiber lasers and optical sensing applications) has launched its first-generation indium phosphide (InP) dual-polarization I-Q modulator for 100 and 400Gb/s long-haul and metro networks.

Based on a nested Mach-Zehnder configuration that enables 100G DP-QPSK and 200/400G QAM optical transmission, the I-Q modulator has a typical Vpi of 1.5V with a bandwidth of 35GHz and 9dB insertion loss. The device includes monitoring photodiodes and a polarization beam combiner in a small (41mm x 19mm) package, which allows for direct line-card integration. It is claimed to be the first InP modulator that offers equivalent performance to the lithium niobate legacy counterpart with a smaller footprint and with much lower Vpi.

The dual-polarization I-Q modulator is being exhibited booth # 424 at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2014) in Cannes, France (22-24 September).
