Emcore Expands 1550nm CATV Transmitter Production

Linear externally modulated transmitters achieve qualification and ship to major cable operators

InP chip and system maker Emcore is expanding production of DOCSIS 3.1, 1550nm CATV transmitters using Linear Externally Modulated Laser (L-EML) technology.

L-EML-based transmitters have achieved qualification with major cable operators and are in volume production. The new Emcore Medallion 8100 L-EML-based 1RU transmitter will be on display at the 2016 Cable-Tec Expo, September 27-29, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA.

The L-EML device consists of a high-power, low-noise, narrow linewidth laser combined with a proprietary highly-linearised modulator in a monolithic assembly. It enables long distance optical link performance approaching traditional lithium niobate-based externally-modulated transmitters, but is more cost-effective for its targeted applications and far exceeds the performance of Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser-based systems.

"L-EML-based CATV transmitters usher in a new era of transmission technology for the industry and we are extremely pleased at the enthusiastic reception and successful qualification at major MSOs," said Grant Olecko, senior product line director at Emcore. "With the rapid growth of next generation DOCSIS 3.1 deployments, Emcore developed a cost-effective solution that overcomes the technical limitations of linear DFBs, while pushing the boundaries of performance towards traditional, but higher cost, lithium niobate-based solutions," added Olecko.

"The L-EML innovation is a truly disruptive technology in the industry which we unveiled at ANGACOM earlier this year, and we continue to ramp production to meet demand following additional successful trials," commented Gyo Shinozaki, Vice President of Marketing for Emcore. "We are excited to showcase L-EML for the first time publicly in the U.S. at the 2016 Cable-Tec Expo."

At the Cable-Tec Expo, Emcore will also show the company's system level portfolio for CATV including the new Medallion 6100 series transmitters, the Medallion 7110 series of low-noise, high power EDFAs and the Medallion 2100 optical A/B switch. In addition, Emcore will feature its full line of DOCSIS 3.1 lasers, DFB CATV butterfly and TO-56 lasers, low-noise optical receivers, broadband photodiodes, and components for wireless and Distributed Antenna System (DAS) applications.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
