EMCORE Introduces New DFB Laser Modules For Wireless And Distributed Antenna System Applications

Stocks in this article: EMKR

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 3, 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 introduced two new Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser modules designed for analog wireless and Distributed Antenna System (DAS) applications. The new 1764 1550 nm C-Band DWDM and 1615 1310 nm DFB Laser Modules will be previewed at ANGACOM, June 4-6 at the Cologne Germany Fairgrounds by EMCORE and EQ Photonics in hall 10.2, stand D038.

The increasing demands on wireless networks from social media, texting, email, and uploading and downloading of applications, music, videos and photos is creating greater and greater need for deployment of cost-effective, integrated wireless DAS systems. Both the new 1764 and 1615 Series laser modules are designed, tested and optimized specifically to support highly-linearized wireless applications. These lasers are matched to 50 Ohm systems typical of wireless networks and have a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C for reliable performance in harsh node environments and narrow transmitter designs. Both models have bandwidth up to 2.7 GHz.

The 1764 1550 nm C-Band DWDM Laser Module features low adiabatic chirp to maximize signal quality over both short and long fiber lengths. The laser's superior linearity minimizes degradation of the broadcast signals caused by distortions and non-linear effects. The 1764 is available in all C-Band ITU grid wavelengths. The 1615 1310 nm DFB Laser Module also delivers superior linearity and supports fiber lengths up to 10 km without dispersion issues.

"We are seeing a growing market opportunity for adaptation of our highly-linear DFB laser technology for specialized wireless and DAS applications," said Jaime Reloj, Vice President of Business Development for EMCORE. "Wireless systems providers are building systems in subway tunnels, massive stadiums, high-speed trains and cruise ships. Our new DFB lasers for wireless applications integrate extremely well into these systems, enhancing bandwidth to help enable the delivery of consistent, reliable WiFi signals in areas where interference is high, or signals are normally weak," said Reloj.
