MARCH 18, 2010 -- Civcom, a technology developer and manufacturer of opto-electronic components and modules, announced the availability of a new DPSK tunable 40G transponder as the latest complement to its 10Gbps Free Light family of tunable NRZ and RZ transponders.
Civcom’s 40Gbps 300PIN TRX module will be made available in two different packages:
Small Form Factor (5” x 5”) featuring standard DPSK modulation format and optional integration with an EDFA
Standard MSA size (7” x 5”) featuring integrated tunable DCM and EDFA functionality
Civcom’s TRX DPSK module increases dispersion tolerance from the standard ±40ps/nm to as high as ±640ps/nm. The introduction of integrated EDFA increases the dynamic range to 20dB.
The transponder module, which is compatible with the 300PIN MSA standards and I2C standards, uses a widely tunable laser covering the entire C-Band.
Civcom will participate at OFC/NFOEC 2010 Trade Show, Booth #909 (23-25 March, 2010) San Diego, CA, USA.
