MARCH 26, 2007 -- Redfern Integrated Optics Inc. (RIO; search for Redfern), a developer and manufacturer of optical transmitters for telecommunications, data transmission, and other markets, has revealed plans to offer a complete 10G SFP+ transceiver module reference design based on its low-cost and low-power-dissipation 1,550-nm planar external-cavity laser (ECL) transmitter optical subassembly (TOSA) for 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) ER, ZR, and DWDM.
The reference design package includes transceiver schematics, bill of materials, and layout files. The company's 10GbE TOSA product line is offered in both standard commercial operating temperature (-5° to +75°C) and an extended industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C).
RIO is also offering a 2.5G DWDM SFP transceiver reference design package for long transmission distances from 120 km up to 640 km. According to the company, this design is suited for extending the reach of metro area network (MAN) applications and eliminating the need for expensive signal regeneration stations.
RIO's 2.5, 4.25, and 10G TDM and DWDM TOSA products are manufactured on a proprietary hybrid integrated optical platform that enables high performance, quality, and reliability in a small package and at low cost. All of the products are RoHS compliant.
RIO plans to demonstrate its PLANEX technology this week at OFC/NFOEC 2007 tradeshow in Anaheim, CA. In Booth #1901, the company will showcase its directly modulated 10-Gbit/sec 1,550-nm ECL TOSA in a 10GbE 40-km (10GBase-ER) SFP+ MSA pluggable transceiver module.
