WILMINGTON, Mass. -- AZNA LLC has announced the qualification of their 10Gb/s Chirp Managed Laser (CMLTM) product family in accordance with the requirements of TelcordiaTM GR468-CORE. The CML family consists of the DM-80 and the DM-200 product codes. These codes enable transmission distances for 10Gb/s NRZ signals up to 120km and 250km respectively without the need for any dispersion compensation - a capability which is possible only with the AZNA CMLTM. Both product codes have the standard butterfly package footprint; the WDM XFP TOSA version of the CMLTM will complete qualification in early 2006.

The CMLTM utilizes 10Gb/s direct modulation which outperforms external modulators commonly used in high performance networks. The CMLTM technology solves the inherent chirp problem associated with the direct modulation of these lasers with an elegant, yet simple and robust optical design. The CMLTM package takes advantage of more than a decade of laser reliability by integrating reliable off-the-shelf DFB laser chips with time-tested standard laser packaging processes. This solution enables a reliable and a virtual dispersion-immune transmission network.

“Our numerous design wins have already driven us to volume production levels. Our customers’ responses to the CML in their network trials have been over-the-top.” said Parviz Tayebati, CEO and cofounder of AZNA LLC. “They emphasize the performance, small size, cost savings, and network flexibility brought about by not having to deal with the constraints of dispersion compensation. Now, by adding the successful qualification of the CMLTM to these benefits, we are able to complete the picture for widespread telecom deployments.” added Tayebati.
