Oclaro introduces new non-hermetic 25Gbit/s DFB laser diodes

Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR) has qualified its non-hermetic 25Gbit/s 1.3 μm distributed feedback (DFB) laser diodes for 100Gbit/s transceivers, the company said.

Featuring leading optical performance with low operating current at high temperatures, the Oclaro 25Gbit/s DFB is a key component for enabling data center operators to transition faster to highly meshed 100Gbit/s connections over single-mode fiber.

The Oclaro 25Gbit/s DFB laser diode is designed for 100Gbit/s and 25Gbit/s optical transceivers used in transmission client interface, high-end spine switch/core router interfaces and large-scale data center meshed networks. Leveraging our experience in high-speed laser design, the 25Gbit/s DFB laser diode features higher bandwidth and lower power consumption, allowing transceiver module designers to migrate to non-hermetic designs to further reduce costs and footprint.

Oclaro provides optical components, modules and subsystems for the core optical, enterprise and data center markets.
