SUGAR LAND, Texas -- In a bid to help equipment manufacturers reduce costs and increase performance, Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (AOI) today announced the availability of two new 1310-nm laser modules. These cost-effective, uncooled, distributed feedback (DFB) lasers meet the growing need for high performance lasers for internet and telecommunications systems. AOI will display these lasers at the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) Conference, March 19-21 in Anaheim, CA at booth 1976. Both lasers are offered in a standard coaxial package with single-mode fiber and feature an advanced multiple quantum-well design. The DFB-1xxx-CX-2-3.2 is designed specifically to meet the unique demands of the new 10-gigabit Ethernet standard (IEEE 802.3a). This 3.2 gigabit-per-second laser is available in four wavelengths, corresponding to the 10-gigabit Ethernet LX-4 (WWDM) standard and is optimized for higher operating temperatures, as required by the standard. The DFB-1310-CX-2-2.5 is designed for SONET S16.1 and L16.1 applications. This 2.5 gigabit-per-second laser is ideal for use in metro networks and intermediate reach applications. "We're very excited to be one of the first laser manufacturers to produce a high performance laser module specifically designed for 10-gigabit Ethernet. Equipment designers need cost-effective lasers that meet rising performance standards and our new lasers meet these challenges," said Stefan Murry, AOI's Marketing Director.
