The T40-850 is small size package of which combines the proprietary 850nm ultrahigh-speed VCSEL and the company’s latest generation SiGe BiCMOS integrated driver circuit. Both devices are assembled into hermetic package and fiber coupled with a 50/125 micron multimode fiber. The overall power consumption is less than 150mW.

The TOSA component features a very compact size of 5 x 5 mm at an overall length of 30 mm including a strain relief boot to protect the fiber. The first products are fiber coupled and terminated with a FC/PC connector. A receptacle type is planned for release in Q2/2012.
