May 10, 2004 San Jose, CA, and Tokyo, Japan -- Eudyna Devices USA Inc. and Fujitsu Ltd. have started sampling 40-km, 1550-nm 10-Gbit small form-factor pluggable transceivers (XFP) to 10-Gbit SONET and Ethernet network equipment manufacturers. The transceivers utilize Fujitsu's module development technology and Eudyna's high-performance PIN receiver in a compact ROSA package and its Modulator Integrated Laser in a small TOSA package, which enables over 40-km transmission.
The low-power transceiver has been standardized by the XFP Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) group to allow communication equipment manufacturers to design high port-density 10-Gbit/sec optical line cards at lower costs. The hot-pluggable feature enables the OEM to reduce manufacturing cost and inventory and allows optical port upgrades and flexibility at the customers' premise at any point in time.
The transceiver has been designed to comply with SONET OC-192 IR-2 / SDH S-64.2b and 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) IEEE802.3ae 10GBASE-ER standards.
Eudyna and Fujitsu are already supplying 10-km 1310-nm XFP transceivers, which comply with SONET OC-192 SR-1 and 10-GbE 10GBASE-LR, to several customers and are planning to develop 80-km and DWDM versions to support all SONET, DWDM, and 10-GbE applications with the XFP package.
Eudyna's products include devices for fiber-optic digital telecommunications applications in the 622-Mbit/sec to 40-Gbit/sec range (laser diodes, receiver modules, GaAs ICs, LN modulators, XFPs, SFPs, and 300-pin MSA transponders), and analog lasers for CATV applications (broadcast and return path). Eudyna produces lasers at ITU-grid wavelengths for DWDM systems. Eudyna's products also include microwave and millimeter wave RF devices for cellular, handset, broadcast and satellite communications.
