March 14, 2002--Modulight, Inc. (www.modulight.com), a manufacturer of high-performance semiconductor components for optical fiber communication, today announced a new family of laser chip products. The Fabry-Perot (FP) laser chips, emitting at 1310 nm, are designed for uncooled transponders, transceivers, and transmitters.

The chips for 622-Mbit/sec, 1.25-Gbit/sec, 2.5-Gbit/sec, and 10-Gbit/sec components are intended for short and intermediate reach applications like SONET/SDH and ATM data links and transceivers for Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet, OIF VSR-4, Fibre Channel, and InfiniBand. The 100 percent tested 622-Mbit/sec, 1.25-Gbit/sec, and 2.5-Gbit/sec chips are available in sample quantities immediately; 10-Gbit/sec FP lasers will be sampled to first customers by the end of Q2 2002.

The lasers show excellent high-temperature properties with characteristic temperature in excess of 85 K, says the company. Typical slope efficiency is 0.37 W/A at 25 degrees C and 0.28 W/A at 85 degrees C.
