Source Photonics Launches Temperature-Hardened 10G Transceivers
InP-based CPRI transceivers operate up to 90degC for wireless infrastructure applications
Source Photonics, a provider of optical communication products, has announced the addition of extreme temperature-hardened products to its portfolio of Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers for antenna front-haul in wireless infrastructure deployments.
The new 10G LR-Lite SFP+ modules will operate to full spec compliance up to a case temperature of 90degC with standards-compliant power dissipation. The extended temperature range facilitates deployment of more compact and efficient remote radio units (RRU), enabling higher density and more efficient use of infrastructure and tower investment, says the company.
The new 90degC LR-Lite SFP+ product is based on 10G laser chips developed and manufactured in Source Photonics' own InP foundry; it has successfully completed all Telcordia GR-468 requirements for 90degC operation, and is available for volume orders.
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
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.
