EMCORE Commences Volume Production Of Micro-ITLA Tunable Laser For 40/100/400 Gigabit Coherent Applications

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optics and solar power markets, announced today that it has commenced volume production of its micro-ITLA (micro-Integrable Tunable Laser Assembly) and is ramping output to meet demand.

The EMCORE micro-ITLA has already been designed into several key customer platforms and is currently operating in multiple field trials. To date, more than 400 samples have been shipped and customer feedback has been very positive.

"We are extremely pleased that the micro-ITLA has been designed into several key customer platforms since we began sampling customers with the product in 2012," commented Christopher Larocca, Chief Operating Officer for EMCORE.  "By leveraging our leading-edge ITLA technology and in-house semiconductor design and manufacturing expertise, the micro-ITLA provides customers with a highly-differentiated tunable laser solution for demanding high-performance telecom applications."

The micro-ITLA is based on EMCORE's Clearlight External Cavity Laser (ECL) technology. EMCORE's ECL is the most widely-deployed tunable laser source for high-speed 40 and 100 gigabit per second coherent systems due to its ultra-narrow linewidth, low noise and superior frequency accuracy.  The micro-ITLA integrates this proprietary ECL technology into a miniaturized form-factor that is three times smaller and consumes over one watt less power than previous generation ITLA's. The micro-ITLA allows tuning to any grid and frequency and has a 15 dBm high-output power option, plus advanced features including in-operation frequency fine tune of ±6 GHz, and in-operation power adjust of 6 dB. The micro-ITLA is fully compliant with the OIF (Optical Internetworking Forum) Implementation Agreement (IA) and allows full control and monitoring.

"Leveraging the benefits of EMCORE's industry-leading ITLA in an ultra-small form-factor represents a dramatic next step in tunable laser technology," said Jaime Reloj, Vice President of Business Development for EMCORE. "The smaller form-factor and reduced power consumption enables our customers to design higher densities, at lower cost with improved performance into their 40, 100 and 400 gigabit coherent systems."
