Xanoptix Adds to Transceiver Suite

MERRIMACK, N.H. -- Xanoptix, Inc. is pleased to announce a smaller form factor version of the XTM-1ä high-density optical transceiver. This latest XTM-1 is made for distances greater than 1km and has a total bandwidth of 225 Gb/s. XTM-1’s small form factor is achieved by the use of massively parallel optical transmitters and receivers, custom IC design which includes the on-chip laser drivers and receiver amplifiers, breakthroughs in packaging and the use of a new ferrule for MT form factor connectors. This innovative 72-fiber connector incorporates a dense 6x12 array of multimode fibers. The XTM-1 transceiver contains 36 transmit and 36 receive channels operating asynchronously up to 3.125 Gb/s per channel. The XTM-1 is ideal for a variety of interconnect applications due to its significantly smaller size and efficient use of circuit board space.

“The size and versatility of the new XTM-1, combined with its proven capabilities, sets the standard for optical network solutions.” said John Trezza, President and CTO of Xanoptix. “XTM transceivers allow networks to reach previously unobtainable levels of efficiency and speed.”
