Emcore expands DOCSIS 3.1 laser family with 1310nm laser module for CATV

Emcore Corp of Albuquerque, NM, USA, which makes compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber-optic and solar power markets, has expanded its DOCSIS 3.1 laser line (launched in March) with the release of the Model 1616A DOCSIS 3.1, 1310nm DFB laser module for CATV (cable television) applications. The 1616A is compliant with the new DOCSIS 3.1 standard, supporting operational bandwidth up to 1.2GHz.

DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) is the standard that facilitates the addition of high-speed data transfer over existing CATV systems for internet access through cable TV services. DOCSIS 3.1 is the latest version and is designed to deliver several new benefits to cable companies including greater capacity and speed. It allows up to 50% more data throughput over the same spectrum to deliver up to 10Gbps downstream and 1-2Gbps upstream. DOCSIS 3.1 also reduces cost-per-bit for data delivery by improving the efficiency of spectrum use.

The 1616A DOCSIS 3.1 laser module features Emcore’s analog chip design and operates over an industrial temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. Inherent linearity minimizes degradation of broadcast signals, and it is fully Telcordia qualified.

“We are rapidly expanding our DOCSIS 3.1 laser module family to meet growing demand for this fast-emerging standard in the CATV industry,” says Jaime Reloj, VP of business development. “The 1616A DOCSIS 3.1, 1310nm laser is a key enabling component for our customers to build DOCSIS 3.1-compliant 1310nm systems,” he adds.

Emcore says that all its lasers use the highly linear, directly modulated distributed feedback (DFB) technology that has become synonymous with the highest-quality, high-speed photonics that drove the wide-scale deployment of fiber optics in CATV networks, satellite earth stations and mobile phone antenna sites. The new 1616A laser module extends that heritage of performance and reliability to the DOCSIS 3.1 standard for 1310nm applications.

The new 1616A DOCSIS 3.1, 1310nm and 1752A DOCSIS 3.1, 1550nm DFB laser modules are featured along with Emcore’s complete line of CATV components and transmitter systems in hall 10.1, EQ Photonics booth #Q14, at the ANGA COM 2014 Exhibition & Congress for Broadband, Cable and Satellite in Cologne, Germany (20-22 May).
