LMC10 Transmitter Modules

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 6 -- Bookham Inc., a provider of optical components, modules and subsystems, recently reported it record power performance with its new LMC10 line of transmitter modules. The company said they are the first to offer 100-km Mach-Zehnder (MZ) long-reach with 10 Gb/s transmission in a package small enough to enable small-form-factor (SFF) module footprints.
Joining Bookham's existing LMC10NEG transmitter are the LMC10NEJ, with negative chirp and precision optical power, and the LMC10ZEG, with zero chirp and dynamic power control. The new Telcordia-qualified 10-Gb/s transmitters use an indium phosphide (inP) MZ-based modulator and a distributed feedback laser that can extend metro networks and long-reach capabilities while retaining SFF or equivalent footprint areas with no electronic dispersion compensation or dispersion-compensated fiber.
"This means that a 10-G overlay strategy can be implemented on existing 2.5-G networks without compromising the density of metro shelves," said Jon White, product line manager at Bookham. "No other 10-Gb/s device has the same performance and size combination. Takeup for our existing InP transmitters has soared over the last year; these new versions are being offered to a wider customer audience as capacity increases in our new assembly facility in China."
The products form part of Bookham’s transmitter and network laser portfolio and complement its line of directly modulated lasers and electro absorption lasers. Bookham is also developing full-band tunable versions of its compact MZ products which it plans to release in 2006.
