SEPTEMBER 6, 2007 — Bookham, Inc., of San Jose, CA, qualified its OceanBright submarine pump module, clearing it for volume shipment. The module, used in erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs), suits deployment in undersea cable systems globally.

The 980-nm pump module meets submarine reliability requirements of less than 50 FITs. It passed module-level lifetest at highly accelerated conditions. Built on Bookham's eight-laser chip (G08) technology, the device can exceed 400 mW at 0°–45°C operating temperatures. It complies with multi-source agreement requirements for use in uncooled applications.
