Kylia introduces integration-ready coherent receivers

MARCH 17, 2010 -- Kylia, specialized in micro optical complex component manufacturing, has developed an integration-ready coherent receiver. The optical system is compatible with OIF recommendations and is targeted at developers working in high-speed transmission using coherent detection.

MARCH 17, 2010 -- Kylia, specialized in micro optical complex component manufacturing, has developed an integration-ready coherent receiver. The optical system is compatible with OIF recommendations and is targeted at developers working in high-speed transmission using coherent detection.

The eight outputs are free space and can be directly coupled into four pairs of balanced photodiodes. The geometry of the outputs (beam size, pitch etc.) can be user defined, says the company. Kylia can also perform the integration of the coherent receiver in front of the photodiodes.

“Providing optical complex subsystems to RF/photodiode components based manufacturers will give them access to the 100-Gbps market,” says Frédéric Verluise, CEO of Kylia.

“Delivering the dual-polarization coherent receiver in the most advanced optical laboratories around the world has been our contribution to make the DP-QPSK format jump from paper study to real 100-Gbps experiments. Offering the integration possibility is our next participation to make DP-QPSK format a reality in the existing optical networks,” says Jacques Clermont, sales manager of Kylia.

Kylia will be exhibiting on booth# 2225 at OFC/NFOEC 2010, which will take place in San Diego from March 23-25.
