NeoPhotonics Announces 100G CFP2 Transceivers For Datacom And Telecom Applications

NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuits, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, announces the introduction of two new 100G CFP2 transceiver modules. The new 100G CFP2 modules include both the popular 10x10 MSA transceiver based on the “10x10” PIC architecture developed by NeoPhotonics and the “4x25” 100GBASE-LR4 transceiver. The CFP2 form factor is a hot pluggable module that is designed to offer lower power and smaller size compared to current generation CFP transceivers and to enable doubling of the face plate input/output port density. The CFP2 is also an attractive form factor for use in fast growing datacenter and metro Ethernet applications.

The new NeoPhotonics 10x10 CFP2 transceiver is based on ten synchronous electrical lanes and is capable of operating at both 100GE and OTU4 date rates. It features the NeoPhotonics PIC-based 10-channel laser array powered by a 10-channel driver array. The array architecture helps to streamline manufacturing processes. The 10x10 CFP2 is also backward compatible with the 10x10 CFP platform currently being commercially deployed. The company also intends for the CFP2 electrical interface to support both 4x25 LR4 and 10x10 LR10 on the same line card.

The CFP2 LR4 transceiver is based on four synchronous electrical lanes of 28Gbps signals and is designed to comply with the IEEE 100GBASE-LR4 and OTU4 specifications. The 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter is based on high performance EML lasers designed to meet stringent OTU-4 optical performance requirements.

“We are excited to announce the development of our PIC based 10x10 and LR4 CFP2 optical transceiver line, which we believe will provide our customers with the flexibility to meet many different network demands,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “The CFP2 platform is enabled by the company’s ability to integrate lasers in arrays utilizing proprietary PIC technology which we believe will continue to enable smaller transceiver form factors and lower power consumption for datacenter and metro Ethernet applications.”
