Advanced Photonix announces sample availability of 10G APD ROSA products

Picometrix LLC, a subsidiary of Advanced Photonix Inc (API) of Ann Arbor, MI, USA (which designs and makes APD, PIN, and FILTRODE photodetectors, HSOR high-speed optical receivers, and T-Ray terahertz instrumentation), has announced sample availability of its avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver optical sub-assembly (ROSA). General product availability is planned for third-quarter 2014.

The AT-10D ROSA is an XMD-compliant form factor for use in high-performance 10Gbps transceivers and transponders for high-speed data and telecoms applications and the emerging 10Gbps fiber-to-the-home (FTTx) markets. The AT-10D utilizes patented APD technology that provides high bandwidth and sensitivity over temperature in a low-cost, industry-standard package. The firm plans to provide a suite of its APD products to support a market that will increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33% to over $160m by 2017, according to industry analysts.

“We are leveraging our core APD technology to support our customers’ needs as the demand for higher bandwidth moves from the long-haul and metro markets into the enterprise and FTTx markets,” says Robin (Rob) Risser, general manager of Picometrix and chief operating officer of API. “The AT-10D represents our next-generation; low-cost package targeted at high-volume and high-growth 10 Gbps markets,” he adds. “Our product family plans include both 2.5 and 10Gbps APDs in front-side and back-side illuminated configurations with standard packaging options, including TO-46, chip-on-carrier and chip-on-tape configurations.”
