ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- EMCORE Corporation (Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optics and solar power markets, announced today that it has begun sampling customers for qualification of the new micro-Integrable Tunable Laser Assembly (ITLA) and expects to be at full production in the fall of 2012.

The micro-ITLA is based on EMCORE's external cavity laser (ECL) ITLA technology which has been the most widely-used tunable laser source for high-speed 40 and 100 gigabit per second coherent transmission systems, thanks to its narrow linewidth, low noise and excellent frequency accuracy. Additional standard features include a grid-agnostic channel plan, off-grid tuning, and in-operation power and frequency adjustment capability.

The EMCORE micro-ITLA integrates our proprietary cooled ECL technology in a miniaturized package that offers all the benefits of the industry-leading EMCORE ITLA in a form-factor that is three times smaller with 25% less power consumption. The micro-ITLA comes with a standard ITLA RS-232 digital user interface for convenient technology independent control of the product. The smaller form-factor and reduced power consumption enables customers to design higher densities and improved performance into their coherent system.
