Emcore launches Model 1999 6GHz-bandwidth coaxial laser module for 5G

At the Mobile World Congress Americas (MWCA) in Los Angeles (22-24 October), Emcore Corp of Alhambra, CA, USA – which provides indium phosphide (InP)-based optical chips, components, subsystems and systems for the broadband and specialty fiber-optics markets – has launched the Model 1999 coaxial distributed feedback (DFB) laser module for next-generation wireless fiber-optic link applications. The 1999 laser module features wide bandwidth above 6GHz and is designed for 5G, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), L-band and wireless remoting link applications.

The 5G wireless migration is underway, with all three of South Korea’s mobile network operators now offering the world’s first ultra-fast 5G services in multiple cities. Full-blown 5G smartphones are available, and early results show a significant uptick in data use among 5G customers, according to SK Telecom.

The new 1999 laser module is an ultra-linear, coaxial DFB laser module operating at wavelengths of 1270-1550nm that is optimized for 5G wireless fiber-optic links. It is designed to enhance bandwidth and signal integrity to meet the increased data demands of 5G networks for delivery of consistent, reliable wireless signals.

Featuring optical output power up to 10dBm, the 1999 laser delivers what is claimed to be superior optical performance over an enhanced temperature range from -40°C to +75°C with very low power consumption. It can be cooled with external thermo-electric coolers (TECs) for high stability or run without TECs to further reduce power consumption. The unit is packaged in a compact, hermetic assembly together with a monitor photodiode and isolator for flexible integration into various transmitter configurations.

“Our new 1999 laser follows the successful release of the model 1998 at last year’s MWCA in Los Angeles and builds on Emcore’s track record of high-performance designs for wireless and high-speed digital applications,” says Gyo Shinozaki, VP & and general manager of Broadband. “With bandwidth above 6GHz, the 1999 will deliver maximum high-speed signal integrity, raising the performance bar in linear fiber-optic transmission in 5G, DAS and long-distance fiber-optic link networks,” he adds.

The new model 1999 and 1998 lasers, along with Emcore’s complete line of lasers, optical receivers and photodiodes for wireless, are on display in booth #S-2461 of the Los Angeles Convention Center at MWCA.
