ANAHEIM, Calif. -- OFC 2002 -- Infineon Technologies (FSE/NYSE: IFX), a leading provider of communications integrated circuits (ICs) and fiber optic components, is demonstrating its new BIDI®-TRX Small Form Factor (SFF) Single-Fiber Transceiver at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference here today (booth number 3812).The new transceiver module, for which several speed, laser type, power and connector options are available, allows two-way communication over a single optical network fiber. This eliminates the cost of the second fiber that is normally required for such communication, thereby doubling the capacity of the network without adding any new fibers, as well as simplifying fiber management. The module is ideally suited for use in point-to-point networks, as a media converter in access applications, and for intra-office communication between switches, cross-connects, routers and servers.In a separate release:At the Optical Fiber Communication Conference here today, Infineon Technologies (FSE/NYSE: IFX) a leading provider of integrated circuits for advanced communications systems introduced its EXponder™ 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) module, which complies with the XENPAK Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) fiber optic transceiver specification. The XENPAK MSA, which is becoming a de facto industry standard, defines and specifies a consistent form factor, size, connector type and electrical pin-out for 10 GbE transceivers meeting the IEEE 802.3ae standard. In a separate release: At the Optical Fiber Communication Conference here today, Infineon Technologies (FSE/NYSE: IFX) introduced its 20-Channel Reconfigurable Add/Drop Multiplexer (Smart ROADM) module, which addresses the needs of the rapidly growing dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) market.The Smart ROADM is the only device currently available that combines on one chip all of the functionality required to add and drop and power equalize wavelengths within an optical network, including demultiplexer, multiplexer, switch matrix, variable optical attenuator, optical power monitors and separate control electronics. This high level of integration eliminates the space occupied by and the expense of the multiple devices required with other solutions.Infineon Technologies AG For more information on OFC 2002, please visit: www.nottheofc.com
