Aug 2004
A group of optical chip and module manufacturers has released common specifications for optical devices based on a 10-Gb/s Miniature Device multisource agreement. The specifications are intended for devices capable of transmission over at least 20 km.

The latter agreement covers devices that comply with interface standards such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and SONET OC-192.
The participating manufacturers are Eudyna Devices Inc. of Yokohama and Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. of Osaka, both in Japan; Opnext Inc. of Eatontown, N.J.; and Mitsubishi Electric Corp. and Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd., both of Tokyo.
