JDSU Offers Low-Cost Optical Detector Chip for GPON

JDSU began shipping an avalanche photo detector (APD) chip designed for GPON deployments. In order to make APD chips affordable for the GPON market, JDSU said it leveraged its manufacturing expertise to reduce production complexity, while retaining the same high reliability and performance of legacy APD chips. The chip is based on a planar platform, known for higher reliability and easier fabrication. JDSU has shipped tens of thousands of APD chips for telecom applications, with a reputation for field performance and reliability.

JDSU is currently developing packaged versions of the APD chip for the GPON space and other telecommunications markets.
