Smaller Pump Laser Packaging Announced

EuroPhotonics
Dec 2012
An agreement between optical communications products suppliers Oclaro Inc. of San Jose, Calif., and 3SPGroup of Nozay, France, marks the biggest change in industry standards for small form factor pump laser packaging in 15 years, reducing the packaging by 70 percent, the companies say. The new 10-pin butterfly package replaces the current standard 14-pin format and is about 30 percent its size. It will be backwardly compatible with legacy applications and will allow customers to develop compact amplifiers with lower costs and reduced space requirements in network equipment, the companies say.
