NeoPhotonics Corp. (NYSE: NPTN) is highlighting its laser components for 100 to 400 Gbps data center applications, including CWDM4, CLR4, PSM-4, and PAM4, at the European Conference on Optical Communications 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden this week.
The company's portfolio begins with 1310-nm lasers and laser arrays qualified to Telcordia GR-468-CORE Issue 2 for use with low-cost, non-hermetic packages for 100G silicon photonics-based QSFP28 modules. NeoPhotonics also has 28-GBaud externally modulated lasers (EMLs) with an integrated driver in chip-on-carrier form for longer-reach 4x25 NRZ 100G, 4x50 PAM4 200G, and 8x50 PAM4 400G designs. Its 56-Gbaud EML with an integrated driver fits 4x100 PAM4 configurations for 400G data center applications.
"Our laser components are key elements for optical modules used inside the data center supplying the light for short-reach silicon photonics-based 100G transceivers and the modulated light for longer reach PAM4 based 100G and 400G transceivers," said Tim Jenks, NeoPhotonics chairman, and CEO. "While the laser architectures are different, both are designed by us, manufactured in our internal fabs and utilize our hybrid photonic integration technology for high performance and high reliability."
NeoPhotonics' standard and small form factor PIC-based components, including a suite of 64-Gbaud coherent devices for 100G to 600G coherent line-side applications, along with 100G client-side and data center CFP2-LR4 transceivers and multi-cast switches for ROADMs, are on exhibit in Stand 340 at ECOC 2017.
