COPENHAGEN -– Hymite A/S, an innovative developer of photonic packaging products, today announced that its cost-effective small housings for optical components are fully compliant with new common specifications released this month for 10-Gbit/sec Miniature Devices (XMDs).

Hymite’s optical packages, designed to replace expensive, labor-intensive packages such as the commonly used “TO can”, “butterfly” and DIL configurations, comply with the new specifications in all aspects, including electrical terminal assignments and package outline dimensions.

The XMD-MSA, or Multi-Source Agreement, was created to enable compatible sources of transmitter optical sub-assembly (TOSA) and receiver optical sub-assembly (ROSA) devices embedded in the 10-Gbit/sec XFP MSA module.

“The industry is faced with a major hurdle in reducing packaging costs and form factors,” says Jochen Kuhmann, VP and CTO of Hymite A/S. “Compliance with industry specifications and standards is a key to Hymite’s strategy of providing component manufacturers a path to enhanced functionality with further size and cost reductions.”
