CIP Technologies Develops 100 Gbps 2R Regenerator

CIP Technologies has released a new 100 Gbps version of its all-optical 2R (reamplification and reshaping) regenerator for optical networking applications. Based on CIP Technologies' HyBoard hybrid platform, the new device is fabricated from an integrated combination of an array of the company's' high-speed nonlinear semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA-XN), and planar silica Mach-Zehnder interferometers (MZIs).

This component combination extends the outstanding signal regeneration properties of the company's hybrid 2R device from data rates of 40 Gbps to 100 Gbps, and retains multi-channel capability.
