In booth #2739 at the Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2018) in San Diego (13-15 March), Applied Optoelectronics Inc (AOI) of Sugar Land, TX, USA – a manufacturer of optical components, modules and equipment for fiber access networks in the Internet data-center, cable TV broadband, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and telecom markets – is showcasing its recently announced 100G single-lambda PAM4 (4-level pulse amplitude modulation) electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) and directly modulated laser (DML) and 400G and 200G transceiver product portfolios, i.e.
- 400G product portfolio (4x100G QSFP-DD DR4, 4x100G QSFP-DD FR4, 8x50G QSFP-DD FR8, 8x50G QSFP-DD LR8);
- 200G product portfolio (2x100G QSFP-DD AOC, 2x100G QSFP-DD SR4, 2x100G QSFP-DD PSM4, 2x100G QSFP-DD CWDM4);
- 100G product portfolio (100G QSFP28 DR1);
- laser technology (100G single-lambda PAM4 EML, 100G single-lambda PAM4 DML).
“By leveraging AOI’s unique in-house laser capabilities and manufacturing expertise, we are committed to being a leading provider of optical components, modules and equipment worldwide,” says founder & CEO Dr Thompson Lin. “At OFC, we are proud to not only showcase our next-generation transceiver product portfolio, but also to demonstrate the laser technology that will enable data rates up to 400G and beyond,” he adds.
In addition, AOI’s Mingshan Li is presenting a paper ‘Demonstration of 53.125Gb/s, CWDM, PAM-4, Directly Modulated Laser Transmission over 20km SMF’ in the ‘Open Systems and Modules’ session beginning at 8:15am on 12 March.
