NeoPhotonics Ships PIC-Based Integrated Coherent Receivers for 40, 100 Gbps

NeoPhotonics has quadrupled capacity for PIC-based Integrated Coherent Receivers (ICR) for 40 and 100Gbps coherent fiber optic transport systems. The devices combine the company's PIC-based ICR, which has one of the industry's highest signal detection responses, with advanced digital signal processing on each channel.
The NeoPhotonics ICR is designed to convert the phase encoded optical signals into electrical signals of varying intensity, which can then be analyzed using digital signal processing.

"The rapid increase in the use of coherent transmission technology for 40 Gbps on the line side, coupled with an initial ramp of 100 Gbps coherent systems, necessitates a significant increase in volume shipments of ICRs while maintaining stringent optical performance requirements," said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. "Our photonic integration technology utilizes our semiconductor-based wafer manufacturing capabilities and is inherently high quality, scalable and cost-effective, which positions us ahead of the demand curve for this important technology," concluded Mr. Jenks.http://www.neophotonics.com
