Source Photonics makes available first 25G SFP28-LR transceiver operating at industrial temperatures over 20km single-mode fiber

Optical communication product maker Source Photonics Inc of West Hills, CA, USA has announced the availability of what is claimed to be the first industrial temperature (i-temp) 25Gb/s SFP28-LR optical transceiver in the compact SFP+ form factor supporting wireless and Ethernet applications.

Source Photonics launched the first i-temp 6Gb/s SFP+ products in 2010 supporting 3G CPRI links and 10Gb/s SFP+ products in 2013 supporting LTE CPRI links. The addition of the 25G SFP28-LR transceiver to its product portfolio supports both Massive MIMO and the 24.33Gb/s CPRI standard for wide bandwidth frequency for air interfaces. The SFP28-LR will also be a key enabler for 1GB LTE networks. 

Based on the SFP+ MSA form factor, the transceiver demonstrates a typical power consumption of 1.5W at 85oC high temperature, and supports up to 20km single-mode fiber transmission. The new SFP28 transceiver operates as a single channel at 25Gb/s and operates at an i-temp case temperature range of -40oC to 85oC. The i-temp performance will ensure that the transceiver can operate in both temperature-controlled environments and in uncontrolled environments such as remote radio head (RRH) units placed atop cell towers.

Source Photonics is expected to start prototype sampling of the 25Gb/s SFP28-LR i-temp transceivers in mid-2016.
