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.
