NeoPhotonics Samples 100G CFP-DCO Coherent Transceiver

NeoPhotonics has initiated sampling of its Coherent CFP-DCO module as part of its ClearLight Coherent Module platform introduction, which uses 16nm Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) and is capable of achieving single wavelength 100 and 200 Gbps transmission over Datacenter Interconnect through Long Haul transmission distances.

NeoPhotonics said its ClearLight CFP-DCO platform is based on optical components with performance capabilities that have already been proven in high volume production. These include a high power tunable laser having the narrowest linewidth and the lowest power consumption in the industry, a low insertion loss modulator capable of higher order modulation, a high responsivity receiver and a low power consumption digital signal processor.

The first release 100Gbps version uses a standard 100GE or OTU-4 interface which can plug directly into existing 100G CFP client-side slots to extend the range and capacity for metro and DCI applications. The module incorporates standard hard decision staircase forward error correction for interoperability, as well as proprietary soft decision forward error correction for high performance applications. A 200Gbps version utilizing 16-QAM is based on the same platform and utilizes the same high volume, proven coherent optical components.

"Our new ClearLight CFP-DCO 100G pluggable Coherent transponder represents a powerful new platform product for NeoPhotonics, and we are pleased to initiate sampling to customers," said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. "This exciting new product is made possible by our Advanced Hybrid Photonic Integration technology, coupled with the latest advances in 16 nm Coherent DSPs, and provides our customers with a flexible, high performance pluggable coherent module for their high speed networks," continued Mr. Jenks.
