NeoPhotonics Adds Reduced Size NLW Laser And ICR To Its Suite Of PIC-Based Optical Components For 100G Coherent Transport

NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based optoelectronic modules and subsystems for bandwidth intensive high speed communications networks, today announced that it will be exhibiting its suite of small form factor Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) based optical components for 100G Coherent Transport at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) in London, England, September 23-25.

These small form factor products are designed to meet the requirements of high port density 100G coherent systems and to scale to 200G and 400G applications using higher order modulation schemes.

NeoPhotonics is a leading supplier of Narrow Linewidth Tunable Lasers (NLW-TL) and Intradyne Coherent Receivers (ICR), which are key components in the 100G Coherent Transport systems currently being deployed in growing numbers around the world. NeoPhotonics now adds new small form factor versions to its current optical components for coherent systems. The first new product is a narrow-linewidth, micro-Integrable Tunable Laser Assembly (micro-ITLA), which is designed to reduce the footprint by more than a factor of three and to reduce power consumption compared to current generation ITLAs. Furthermore, NeoPhotonics’ micro-ITLA is designed to support the high optical output power and the narrow linewidth required for next generation coherent network architectures. The second product is a Small Form Factor Intradyne Coherent Receiver (SFF-ICR), which is less than half of the size of currently shipping ICRs. The SFF-ICR has the option of an integrated VOA on the signal path and a monitor photodiode (MPD) to simplify board level integration. This versatile device is well-suited for both single incoming channel and multiple incoming channel applications.

“Photonic Integration has played a major role in enabling the current generation of coherent systems which are now transforming the optical communications landscape, and we are proud of the contribution NeoPhotonics has made to this sea change,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “As exemplified by these new products, we are utilizing our Photonic Integration technology to bring our customers the benefits of reduced size, reduced power consumption and higher levels of integration and performance,” continued Mr. Jenks.
