Oclaro Unveils New Line of Non-Hermetic 25Gbit/s DFB Laser Diodes for 100Gbit/s Transceivers

SAN JOSE, CA -- Oclaro, Inc. announces the successful qualification of its non-hermetic 25Gbit/s 1.3 μm distributed feedback (DFB) laser diodes for 100Gbit/s transceivers. Featuring leading optical performance with low operating current at high temperatures, the Oclaro 25Gbit/s DFB is a key component for enabling data center operators to transition faster to highly meshed 100Gbit/s connections over single-mode fiber.

About the 25Gbit/s DFB Laser Diode

The Oclaro 25Gbit/s DFB laser diode is designed for 100Gbit/s and 25Gbit/s optical transceivers used in transmission client interface, high-end spine switch/core router interfaces and large-scale data center meshed networks. Leveraging our experience in high-speed laser design, the 25Gbit/s DFB laser diode features higher bandwidth and lower power consumption, allowing transceiver module designers to migrate to non-hermetic designs to further reduce costs and footprint.

Additional benefits of the 25Gbit/s laser diode include the following:
•Delivers excellent eye mask performance with more than 5dB extinction ratio at 60 mA driving current at 70 degree C of transceiver module level;
•Leverages Oclaro's cutting-edge design and mass production technology of InAlGaAs-MQW and Ridge waveguide structure to deliver optimum optical performance; and
•Completed the non-hermetic test compliant with the Telcordia GR-468-CORE issue 2 including non-hermetic damp heat/damp heat for powered non-hermetic devices.

The 25Gbit/s DFB laser diode is now fully qualified and available for production.
