NeoPhotonics Adds Micro-Integrated Coherent Receiver to Its Suite of Products For 100G and 400G Coherent Transport
OIF Type 2 ICR and High Power Micro ITLA Are Now Generally Available
Increasing Capacity for ICR and External Cavity Micro ITLA
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 20, 2015--
NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and
manufacturer of hybrid photonic integrated circuit based modules and
subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks,
today announced a micro-Integrated Coherent Receiver (Micro-ICR) which
is designed to fully support the OIF implementation agreement
OIF-DPC-MRX-02.0, Type 1. The Micro-ICR has a compact form factor that
is approximately one quarter the size of the standard OIF 1.2 Type 1 ICR
and one half the size of the new OIF 1.2 Type 2 ICR. It is designed to
be used in coherent analog CFP2-ACO pluggable modules as well as in high
density line cards. The Micro-ICR offers advanced features for optical
power monitoring and adjustment using variable optical attenuators and
is designed for use with a single laser for both the local oscillator
and the transmitter.
This new Micro-ICR joins a broad suite of optical products for 100G
coherent communications from NeoPhotonics, including the OIF 1.2 Type 2
Small Form Factor ICR (Type 2 ICR) and the High Power Narrow-Linewidth,
micro-Integrable Tunable Laser Assembly (micro-ITLA), both of which are
now generally available and shipping to customers. These small form
factor products are also designed to scale to 200G and 400G applications
using higher order modulation schemes. In addition, NeoPhotonics is
continuing volume shipments and increasing manufacturing capacity for
its standard OIF 1.2 Type 1 ICR and its standard power ultra-narrow
linewidth external cavity Micro-ITLA.
“We are excited to use our hybrid photonic integration technology in our
Micro-ICR to take another significant step in reducing the size of 100G
optical components and thus allow our customers to increase the density
of their 100G and beyond line cards,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO
of NeoPhotonics. “We are increasing manufacturing capacity to meet
market demand for our currently shipping 100G coherent optical
components and plan to transition that capacity to our newer, higher
density 100G and 400G products as demand grows,” continued Mr. Jenks.
NeoPhotonics will exhibit its suite of standard and small form factor
PIC-based components and its modular Multi-Cast Switches, both for 100G
coherent line-side applications, along with its 100G client-side CFP2
and CFP4 transceivers and its next generation transceivers for access
networks in Booth 1511 at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC)
Exposition at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles,
California, March 24-26.
In addition, NeoPhotonics will present the following talks in
conjunction with OFC:
Sunday – March 22, 3:30-6:30 PM: Flexible Optical Network Workshop, Room
408A, “CDC ROADM with Minimum EDFAs,” presented by Winston I. Way.
