LOS ANGELES -- NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced here at OFC/NFOEC, a new PIC-based Integrated Coherent Receiver (ICR) for 40 and 100 Gbps DWDM transmission systems that incorporates an integrated polarizing beam splitter (PBS).

The new NeoPhotonics ICR is designed to eliminate the need for system designers to place a PBS externally, decreasing circuit board footprint requirements. The product supports the OIF Implementation Agreement for Integrated Dual Polarization Intradyne Coherent Receivers*. The NeoPhotonics ICR is designed to provide advanced demodulation to analyze the state-of-polarization and optical phase of a phase-modulated signal relative to an externally supplied optical reference signal, enabling recovery of the phase-polarization constellation of 100 Gbps Dual Polarization Quadrature Phase Shift Keyed (DP-DQPSK) format signals.
