Albuquerque, N.M. EMCORE Corporation has released a full band tunable long reach 80 km small form factor (SFF) transponder for 10-Gigabit applications. Marking the company's expansion into the 10 Gbits/s telecommunications market, the ETU-9C00-SFF is believed to be the first commercially available transponder to integrate full band tuning at 50-GHz channel spacing in the 300-pin SFF package.
The ETU-9C00-SFF is a multi-purpose full band tunable optical transceiver module for 10 Gbits/s DWDM long reach telecommunications and datacommunications applications. The design provides wave-locked 50-GHz channel spacing on the ITU-grid and is tunable across the entire C- band. It is suitable for high performance telecommunications applications that require SDH STM-64, SONET OC-192, or 10GBASE-ZR transmission.
The Mach-Zehnder transmitter supports zero chirp and negative chirp options, and supports applications requiring less than 2 dB dispersion penalty through 100 km of fiber. The design is fully compliant with the 300-pin SFF multi-source agreement (MSA) and the European Union's RoHS 6 requirements.
Availability: The C-Band tunable ETU-9C00-SFF is currently sampling. The L-Band tunable ETU-9L00-SFF will be available in second quarter 2007.
The products will be on display at the 2007 OFC/NFOEC conference, Booth #3142, in Anaheim, Calif., March, 27-29, 2007.
