Lumentum's 200G PAM4 externally-modulated lasers (EMLs) have received a European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) Exhibition Industry Award 2022 in the category of data centre Innovation/Best Product.
"We are delighted and humbled to have won this award," said Wupen Yuen, Lumentum SSVP and general manager, Datacom. "Lumentum has led the industry through multiple generations of increased intra-data centre transmission rates leveraging market-leading innovation and exceptional quality. We are excited to work with customers and data centre operators to accelerate their transition to the next generation of switching and architectures with our 200G PAM4 EMLs."
Lumentum's EMLs are InP PICs that consist of a distributed feedback laser monolithically integrated with an electro-absorption modulator, providing customers with a single laser transmitter chip.
Lumentum's 200G PAM4 EMLs are designed to minimise input voltage swings to reduce the power consumption of related ICs, according to the company. Lumentum is planning CWDM and LAN-WDM 4-channel support for various system architecture needs.
