NeoPhotonics Rolls out Integrated Coherent Receiver at ECOC 2010

Maker of photonic integrated circuit (PIC) based units, NeoPhotonics has released an Integrated Coherent Receiver (ICR) for the 100 Gbps Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) transmission solutions.

The company announced the new product at the European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communications (ECOC) 2010, in Italy. The ICR is an integrated PIC technology-based intradyne receiver.

The ICR supports the needs of the Implementation Agreement of the Optical Internetworking Forum, for the 100G Integrated Polarization Intradyne Coherent Receivers. The instrument offers sophisticated demodulation to analyze the optical phase and state-of-polarization of a signal, allowing recovery of the phase-polarization group of 100 Gbps DP-DQPSK format signals. The receiver includes four groups of photodiodes with four linear amplifiers, to offer four output channels at data rates of 32 Gbaud.

The Chief Executive Officer of NeoPhotonics, Tim Jenks stated that the ICR is crucial for enabling high-speed network links. Dr Ferris Lipscomb, Vice-President of Marketing, mentioned that the company uses hybrid photonic integration to attain high-performance needed for 100 Gbps applications.
