Infineon Unveils VCSEL
"Our Corporate Research Center developed the new 1300nm VCSEL technology, which is a key component for new datacom systems using either multimode and single-mode fiber," said Thomas Seifert, Senior Vice President and COO of Infineon's Communication Group. "This new technology will enable our customers to deliver first-to-market, maximum performance optical interconnect and long-haul transmission solutions."
The new 1300nm lasers can be modulated up to 10 GHz, providing the output power required for fiber optic transmission systems operating at OC-192 data rates (10 Gigabits per second). Designers can reduce their overall system complexity and system costs as well as improve system performance. Through new capabilities of the 1300nm technology, tightly spaced laser arrays can optimize port densities.
