Applied Optoelectronics offers 100-Gbps optical transceiver line

Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAOI) will highlight a new range of data center 100-Gbps optical transceivers at OFC 2015 in Los Angeles. The modules include a multimode fiber QSFP28, a QSFP28 designed for PSM-4 applications, and a single-fiber module designed to CLR4 applications in a QSFP+ optical module format.

Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAOI) will highlight a new range of data center 100-Gbps optical transceivers at OFC 2015 in Los Angeles. The modules include a multimode fiber QSFP28, a QSFP28 designed for PSM4 applications, and a single-fiber module designed to CLR4 applications in a QSFP+ optical module format.

The multimode QSFP will be available as standalone devices as well as the endfaces for active optical cables (AOCs). The QSFP28 MSA SFF-8665 compliant device will support both InfiniBand EDR and IEEE 802.3bm Ethernet. It offers a power consumption <3.5 W (<7 W for the AOC variants).

As its name implies the PSM4 QSFP28 complies with the parallel singlemode four-fiber MSA. It leverages four 1310-nm uncooled DFB lasers and offers a power consumption of <3.5 W. It operates from -5 to +70 degrees C.

The single-fiber QSFP+ device also benefits from the use of four-channel CWDM uncooled DFB lasers. It complies with IEEE 802.3bm/100G-CLR4 specifications at a power consumption of <3.5 W. The module also operates from -5 to +70 degrees C.

Multimode product samples are available now, with the PSM4 and CLR4 products expected to be available later this year, Applied Optoelectronics says. The company will supply product specifications, availability, and pricing information upon request.
