Overview

NeoPhotonics’s new External Cavity Dual micro-ITLA integrates our proprietary cooled External Cavity Laser (ECL) technology in a new smaller package that offers all the benefits of the micro-ITLA in a form factor that requires 25% less space than two single micro-ITLAs combined, while delivering the same level of performance. The smaller form factor and reduced power consumption of the new Dual micro-ITLA enables customers to design even higher densities into their line cards. The long cavity length of our ECL gives a pure optical signal with the narrowest linewidth in the industry. Lasers with stable phase or, equivalently, a narrow linewidth, become critical, especially for higher order modulation schemes such as 16QAM and 64QAM.
