Applied Optoelectronics Announces 100 Gbps Optical Engine

Combines four 25Gbps laser diodes, a receiver array, an optical fibre array and associated drive electronics

Applied Optoelectronics Inc (AOI), a US provider of fibre-optic access network products datacentre, cable TV broadband, and fibre-to-the-home markets, has announced a new optical engine for use in 100 Gbps transceivers for datacentre applications.

The new optical engine combines four of AOI's 25Gbps laser diodes, a receiver array, an optical fibre array and the associated drive electronics into a single optical subassembly that is the major building block required for assembly of a 100 Gbps parallel single-mode (PSM4) transceiver.

These transceivers are designed to address the growing market demand for 100G optics and are expected to be used in next generation datacenter interconnects to facilitate higher data throughput between servers and switches.

"Given our established leadership and expertise in manufacturing advanced optics, coupled with our history of innovation in highly integrated optical modules, AOI is at the forefront in developing leading edge light engines that enable the market transition to 100G speeds," commented Fred Chang, AOI's Senior Vice President of the Optical Component Business Unit. "We expect this device to be a critical building block for QSFP-28 transceivers using the PSM4 optical interface."



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
