CST Global sampling 1270nm DFB lasers in TO can packages for FTTH markets

III-V optoelectronic foundry Compound Semiconductor Technologies Global Ltd (CST Global) of Blantyre, Glasgow, Scotland, UK says that samples of its 1270nm, 10Gb/s and 2.5Gb/s distributed feedback (DFB) lasers are now available in standard TO-56 can packages.

The lasers are targeted at the global high-speed fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) market, which is reckoned to be $7.3bn in 2019 and rising at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) exceeding 7%, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence.

“The 1270nm 10Gb/s synchronous lasers, with both a 10Gb/s downstream and upstream, are for the fast-growing XGS-PON [passive optical network] part of the FTTH market,” notes VP sales & marketing Euan Livingston. “Currently, XGS-PON makes up less than 10% of the total FTTH market, with estimates showing it may exceed 40% of the total FTTH market by 2023.”

“The 1270nm 10Gb/s lasers also support 10G-EPON FTTH applications, and the 1270nm 2.5Gb/s lasers support 10G-GPON applications,” Livingston continues. “Together, these make up around 10% of the worldwide FTTH market,” he adds.

“Our next-generation 1270nm laser chips in TO cans address worldwide FTTH demand,” says Anders Storm, CEO of Sweden-based parent company Sivers IMA Holdings AB. “The TO Can format allows vendors to test standard products for the next design cycle and meet production demand during 2020.”

CST Global is attending the Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2019) in San Diego, CA, USA (3-7 March).
