Overview

Custom designed for high-density linecards, the NeoPhotonics Mini Coherent Receiver provides advanced demodulation to analyze the state-of-polarization and optical phase of a phase-modulated signal relative to an externally-supplied optical reference. This enables the recovery of the phase-polarization constellation of 100 G/s Dual Polarization Quadrature Phase Shift Keyed (DP-DQPSK) format signals as well as 8-QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) and 200G 16-QAM format signals. The ICR is based on a Monolithic Indium Phoshpide chip that integrates a 90-degree hybrid mixer with four high-speed waveguide photodiodes accompanied by four differential linear amplifiers to provide four output channels at 32 GBaud and above.
