NeoPhotonics Announces Availability of a Matched Suite of 64 GBaud Coherent Optical Components for 1.2T Applications
Provides a Complete Optical Solution for 600G and 1.2T Coherent
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 22, 2018--
NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and
manufacturer of optoelectronic solutions for the highest speed
communications networks in telecom and datacenter applications, today
announced that it is currently shipping to multiple customers its suite
of 64 GBaud optical components for coherent systems operating at 600G
and 1.2T. The suite consists of three critical optical components: a 64
GBaud CDM (Coherent Driver Modulator), plus a 64 GBaud ICR (Coherent
Intradyne Receiver) and finally an ultra-narrow linewidth tunable laser.
These components work
together to enable customers to implement single channel 600G or
dual channel 1.2T data transmission over datacenter interconnect (DCI)
distances of 80 km. The components also support 400G over metro
distances of 400-600 km using 64 GBaud and 16 QAM or 200G over long-haul
distances of greater than 1000 km using 64 GBaud and QPSK
System designers depend on NeoPhotonics 64 GBaud Coherent Product Suite
to achieve higher data-rates over a given distance. 64 GBaud components
double the symbol rate over standard 100G (32 GBaud) coherent systems.
Higher symbol rates increase data capacity while maintaining superior
OSNR, spectral density and reach performance. Higher order modulation
schemes such as 16 QAM and 64 QAM improve spectral efficiency, but
require a higher OSNR and benefit from the ultra-narrow linewidth
provided by NeoPhotonics external cavity tunable laser. These three
components are available in compact form factor packages suitable for
CFP2 pluggable modules and compact daughter cards.
64 GBaud CDM: NeoPhotonics 64 GBaud,
polarization multiplexed, quadrature coherent driver modulator (CDM) is
shipping in limited availability and features a co-packaged InP
modulator with a linear, high bandwidth, differential driver in a
compact package designed to be compliant with the anticipated OIF
Implementation Agreement. Co-packaging the InP IQ modulator with the
driver enables an 85% reduction in line card board space compared to
equivalent lithium niobate solutions. Furthermore, this facilitates
transceiver applications up to 600 GBps on a single wavelength for next
generation transport modules..
64 GBaud Micro-ICR: NeoPhotonics Class 40
High Bandwidth Micro-Intradyne Coherent Receiver (Micro-ICR) is in
volume production and is designed for 64 GBaud symbol rates, doubling
the RF bandwidth of standard 100G ICRs. The 64 GBaud Micro-ICR supports
higher order modulation such as 64 QAM. The compact package is designed
to be compliant with the OIF Implementation Agreement OIF-DPC-MRX-02.0.
Low Profile Micro-TL: NeoPhotonics
ultra-narrow linewidth external cavity tunable laser has been proven in
volume production and is now configured in a smaller, lower profile
package, which is designed to meet the stringent requirements for
packaging density in pluggable modules. The external cavity laser design
has a significantly narrower linewidth than competing designs, which is
especially advantageous for higher order modulation formats. The laser
is available in a compact package Integrable Tunable Laser Assembly form
factor designed to be compliant with the OIF Implementation Agreements
OIF-MicroITLA-01.1 and OIF-ITLA-MSA-01.3.
“All three elements of our suite of optical components for 600G and 1.2T
are now available and shipping to customers, allowing them to take
advantage of the performance of all three elements to optimize their
system performance,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics.
“We ensure that each element is designed to work seamlessly with the
others and offer our customers a complete optical solution, both
increasing performance and reducing development time” continued Mr.
NeoPhotonics will exhibit its suite of coherent components for 600G and
1.2T at the OFC Optical Networking and Communication Conference &
Exhibition in Booth 3322 in San Diego, March 13th to 15th,
along with its broad family of products for high speed applications.
