NeoPhotonics launches dual-rate 100G CFP4 LR4 transceivers

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 introduced a new compact and dual-rate 100G CFP4 LR4 transceiver for telecom and datacom applications.

The 100G CFP4 LR4 requires much less power and is half the size compared to the current-generation CFP2 form factor. The 100G CFP4 is hence an attractive next-generation 100G module for bandwidth-hungry data-center applications, where both port density and lower power are highly desired, says the firm.

The new transceiver is designed to fully comply with the IEEE 802.3 100GBASE-LR4 and CAUI-4 electrical interface and OTN OTU4 standards for links up to 10km. It combines CFP4 MSA and MDIO functionality and is interoperable with previous-generation CFP and CFP2 modules. NeoPhotonics says that the 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter utilizes its proven performance and high-volume manufacturing platform of 28G EML lasers and drivers, enabling what is claimed to be best-in-class module performance, especially in OTN applications, inter-operability and easy deployment.

"The introduction of our new 100G CFP4 LR4 client transceiver module underlines our commitment to the ultra-high-speed segment of the transceiver market," says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks. "We are pleased to support our customers with their growing demand for 100G by adding production capacity for our CFP2 LR4, which was released last year," he adds.

At the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC 2015) conference & exposition in Los Angeles (24-26 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 and an extensive line of OLT transceivers for FTTH PON networks.
