NeoPhotonics Announces 53 GBaud Linear Optical Component for 400Gbps
San Jose, California – March 5, 2018 – 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 its 53 GBaud Linear Optical Component
family, which includes PAM4capable optical components for 100G and 400G cloud data center and other client
applications, including drivers and EML lasers in transmitters plus PIN
photodetectors and TIAs in receivers.
data centers are generating strong demand for transceiver solutions with higher
port densities and lower cost per bit, which is driving the technology shift to
single-lambda 100Gbps with PAM4 technology.The NeoPhotonics 53 Gbaud family offers module designers a complete set
of optical components with accompanying analog electronic chips designed to
performance with low power consumption in small form factor applications.
GBaud Linear Optical Component family from NeoPhotonics includes:
·53 GBaud Open
Drain Driver (ODD) for linear operation of EML lasers. With a typical 90mW
of power consumption per channel and small size, this high speed driver is well
suited for space and power efficiency in small form factor pluggable modules.
·53 GBaud MZM
drivers for Silicon Photonics modulators. This quad driver has a high 3.5Vppd
output per channel and a typical 2.2W low power consumption for all four
channels designed for small form factor pluggable modules.
CWDM4 EML, which includes the option for integration with NeoPhotonics’ open
drain driver. Over the operating temperature range from 20 to 70C, this EML
is a preferred transmitter solution for PAM4 for intra-datacenter applications.
·53 GBaud PIN
photodetectors. The side illumination structure of the PIN PD enables a simple
coplanar assembly with mux/demux chip and TIA well suited for compact modules.
·53 GBaud Transimpedance
Amplifier (TIA). With low noise and a typical power consumption of 60mA
over a 3.3V rail, this TIA is well suited for receiver signal amplification for
up to 10km transmission.
complete 53 GBaud Linear Optical Component family, with a typical bandwidth of
35 GHz for all these optical components, provides all needed optical components
for single lambda 100Gbps transmitters and receivers, scalable to 400 Gbps
transceivers with CWDM4 wavelengths.” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of
NeoPhotonics.“NeoPhotonics is pleased
to now also support the cloud data centers and the industry with a solid and growing
portfolio of cost effective optical components based on NeoPhotonics’ high
speed platforms of GaAs driver, InP EML/PIN PD, and SiGe TIA,” continued Mr.
will exhibit its 53 GBaud Linear Optical Component family 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.
