NeoPhotonics has started sampling its 400G CFP8 transceiver modules, designed for data center interconnection and client side telecom applications.
NeoPhotonics has used its 28 Gbaud high performance and low power EMLs (Electro-absorption Modulated Lasers) and high speed PIN photodiodes in 400G PAM4 (4-level Pulse Amplitude Modulation) CFP8 module. NeoPhotonics able to integrate driver into the EML at the chip-on-carrier (CoC) level.
NeoPhotonics 400G CFP8 transceiver is designed to be compliant with the IEEE 802.3bs 400GBASE- LR8 / FR8 specifications for links up to 10 km.
“We are pleased to provide our customers this 400G CFP8 module which extends our high speed product family in a manner that leverages both our proven high performance and high volume production capabilities, providing an efficient path to high density and higher speed,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We believe our 400G PAM4 CFP8 solution will fulfill imminent market needs by leveraging the superior link performance of our high performance EML lasers, while reducing power consumption through integration with technology leading CMOS PAM4 chipsets. We believe that this product firmly demonstrates our leadership position at 400G,” continued Mr. Jenks.
