NEC Corporation Announces Extended Reach XFP Transceiver Based on AZNA CML TOSA.
Tokyo, Japan, Mar 27, 2007 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC (NEC Corporation, Tokyo, www.nec.com, www.necus.com) An electronics conglomerate known in the U.S. for its monitors. In Japan, it had the lion's share of the PC market until the late 1990s (see PC 98).
NEC was founded in Tokyo in 1899 as Nippon Electric Company, Ltd. has demonstrated an extended reach 10 Gbps XFP transceiver for 160 km links without dispersion compensation. This transceiver leverages NEC's Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) technologies with AZNA's extended reach Chirp See chirped pulse and CHRP. Managed Laser (CML 1. CML - A query language.

It dates at least to the Heian period, when Ki no Tsurayuki (868?–945?), editor of Japan's first imperially commissioned poetry anthology, wrote a fictional diary drawing on his experiences as governor of Tosa. ). This transceiver addresses the demand for high density pluggable optics and eliminates the need for dispersion compensation in 2.5 Gbps to 10 Gbps upgrades.
Optical transmitter modules are optical devices used in optical interfaces of equipment such as large-capacity optical communications systems and high-speed router switches. Since conventional electro-absorption modulator integrated lasers (EML) or Mach-Zehnder modulators used in long-distance transmission are limited to a distance of around 80 km there has been demand for longer-range capability.
In a joint effort the two companies have demonstrated a compact PLC based CML TOSA, which allows further miniaturization min·i·a·tur·ize

NEC has developed a PLC-based OSR which can replace the current bulk version of the OSR used in AZNA products. The PLC based CML reduces parts count and allows passive optical alignment, which allows mass production leading to a lower cost.
The XFP transceiver with a CML-TOSA is scheduled for display at OFC 2007 (Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition) being held in Anaheim, California from March 27, 2007. It will be exhibited at the NEC FiberOptech, Inc. booth (#1241).
