NeoPhotonics sampling 100G Class 3 coherent pluggable CFP2-ACO

NeoPhotonics Corp of San Jose, CA, USA (a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of hybrid photonic integrated optoelectronic modules and subsystems for high-speed communications networks) has announced initial sample availability for the ClearLight CFP2-ACO (analog coherent optics) Class 3 coherent pluggable module (the firm's first CFP-2 ACO module in a Class 3 configuration).

Building on NeoPhotonics' strength in components for coherent transport systems, the new product is the first in a series of high-performance pluggable modules and represents an expansion to the firm's coherent product suite to meet growing demand for high-density coherent solutions for both telecom and data-center networks.

The ClearLight CFP2-ACO combines all of the optical functions necessary for a coherent transponder in a standard-form-factor compact pluggable module and is designed to fully support the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) 'Implementation Agreement for CFP2-Analog Coherent Optics Module' (OIF-CFP2-ACO-01.0, 22 January) for Class 3. The module incorporates NeoPhotonics' ultra-narrow-linewidth external-cavity tunable laser and high-responsivity integrated coherent receiver (ICR), exhibits low electrical power consumption, and is suitable for 100G DP-QPSK and 200G 16QAM operation. The ClearLight Class 3 CFP2-ACO is compatible with digital signal processor (DSP) solutions from multiple vendors, and places the control of the optics outside the module with the DSP.

"We are building upon our core strength in advanced hybrid photonic integrated circuits [PICs] to combine multiple different functions in a compact module utilizing the right material technology for each element," says says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks. "This will allow us to follow this first product with a series of modules to meet the ever increasing performance demands of future networks." 

In addition to demonstrating the new CFP2-ACO, in booth 3301 at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2016) in Anaheim, CA, USA (22-24 March) NeoPhotonics is exhibiting its suite of standard and small-form-factor PIC-based components for 100G coherent line-side applications, along with its 100G client-side CFP2 and QSFP28 transceivers and its next-generation multi-cast switch for contentionless networks.
