Mitsubishi Electric to Launch Compact Integrated 100Gbps EML-TOSA

Will support long-haul transmissions and downsizing of 100Gbps communication equipment

TOKYO, March 16, 2016 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it will begin shipping a laser diode-transmitter optical subassembly (TOSA) capable of supporting 100Gbps optical transmissions on July 1. The new TOSA, which features four electro-absorption modulators with laser diode (EML) integrated with an optical multiplexer, offers one of most compact EML-TOSA solutions available for IEEE 100GBASE-ER4 applications.

The device will be displayed at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition 2016 (OFC) in Anaheim, California from March 20 to 24.

In response to the growing need to install communication equipment in increasingly confined spaces, Mitsubishi Electric's new laser-diode TOSA offers 40km transmission capability in one of the industry's smallest footprints, a combination that is expected to help downsize 100Gbps communication facilities and expand high-speed 100Gbps optical transmission networks.

Product Features
1) High-performance EML for long-distance transmissions
-Combines over 40km transmissions and low power consumption with high extinction ratio modulated by small driving voltage
-Suitable for long-distance transmissions, such as between data centers
2) Size measuring just 30 percent that of predecessor will help to miniaturize optical transceivers
-Optical multiplexer and other components were optimized to reduce the package size to 30 percent that of the predecessor model (FU-401REA)
-Package size complies with common specifications for CFP4 optical transceivers
