SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2016 — NeoPhotonics Corp. has announced a sampling of HB Micro-ICRs, or Class-40 High-Bandwidth Micro-Intradyne Coherent Receivers, capable of supporting 64-Gbaud symbol rates, which is double the bandwidth of standard 32-Gbaud ICRs. The HB Micro-ICR supports higher order modulation up to 64 QAM, which when coupled with NeoPhotonics ultra-narrow linewidth, external-cavity Micro-ITLA laser, can achieve 600 Gbps over Datacenter Interconnect distances of 80 km. The HB Micro-ICR is designed to support the Optical Internetworking Forum Implementation Agreement for Micro-Intradyne Coherent Receivers. The HB Micro-ICR form factor is designed to fit into both CFP2-ACO and CFP-DCO pluggable modules. Both the HB Micro-ICR and the ultra-narrow linewidth laser also exhibit the low electrical power required for use in pluggable modules.
