Albuquerque, N. Mex. EMCORE Corporation is now sampling its 10 Gbits/s Fabry-Perot LC transmit optical sub-assembly (TOSA) for 10 Gbits/s SFP+ and XFP 10GBASE-LRM modules. LRM is an emerging technology that provides 10 Gbits/s transmission speeds over 220 meter multi-mode optical fiber links as defined by the IEEE 802.3aq 10GBASE-LRM standard.
The Fabry-Perot LC TOSA uses an XMD multi-source agreement (MSA) compatible Flex as the standard electrical interface and is available with an LC optical receptacle (with SC as an option for other form factors). It uses EMCORE's 1310 nm Fabry-Perot laser diode designed for direct modulation and non-cooled operation over a -5 degrees to +85 degrees C operating temperature range. The parts are RoHS compliant and meet the 10G XMD MSA.
The company's LRM receiver optical sub-assembly (ROSA), which includes a 10 Gbits/s InP PIN photo detector, transimpedance amplifier (TIA), and an LC or SC optical barrel, complete the solution for an optical to electrical interface for fiber to the module circuit board. The ROSA has a differential output and remains linear over the input power range defined in the LRM standard. The product is optimized to work with EDC (Electronic Dispersion Compensation) ICs to meet the linear requirements of LRM modules.
The EMCORE LRM product portfolio will be on display at the OFC/NFOEC conference in Anaheim, Calif., March 27-29, 2007 at Booth #3142.
Availability: The LRM Fabry-Perot TOSAs are sampling today.
