Enablence offers 40G and 100G TOSAs and ROSAs

Nov. 12, 2013
Optical component and subsystem developer Enablence Technologies (TSX VENTURE:ENA) has unveiled a line of transmit optical subassembly (TOSA) and receive optical subassembly (ROSA) components for CFPx and QSFP+ optical transceiver applications.

Optical component and subsystem developer Enablence Technologies (TSX VENTURE:ENA) has unveiled a line of transmit optical subassembly (TOSA) and receive optical subassembly (ROSA) components for CFPx and QSFP+ optical transceiver applications.

Enablence says it is shipping TOSAs and ROSAs in 8x10G and 10x10G configurations that are compliant with the CFP MSA. Meanwhile, additional components for 4x10G, 4x25G, and 8x25G transceiver applications should be available “in the coming quarters,” the company adds.

The new TOSAs and ROSAs will play in QSFP+, CFP, and CFP2 modules for data center communications, Enablence says. The TOSA/ROSA designs use Enablence's proprietary low-loss silica-on-silicon planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technology and hybrid integration techniques to create compact photonic integrated circuits (PICs).

The company says the new TOSA and ROSA products are emblematic of Enablence’s refocus on component and subsystem supply after an unsuccessful expansion into systems development put the company on the brink of bankruptcy (see “Enablence Technologies management warns of insolvency”). Management says a financial restructuring has given Enablence a clean balance sheet with money left over for production expansion and new product development – and, hopefully, restored customer confidence.
