DWDM SFP Transceiver

TriQuint Semiconductor’s Optoelectronics Division has added DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing) SFP transceivers to its NetLight SFP transceiver family.

‘It is now possible to consolidate wavelength management directly into the optical ports on the edge switch and significantly reduce the complexity and cost of DWDM in metro core and edge applications,’ said Glen Riley, Vice President and General Manager for TriQuint Optoelectronics.

Manufactured at its Matamoros, Mexico facility, TriQuint’s new versions of the NetLight SFP transceivers target DWDM interfaces up to 2.5 Gb/sec with 100GHz spacing and high wavelength stability. With an APD receiver and a typical launch power of 2 – 3 dBm, total transceiver power dissipation is typically under 1W.

The DWDM SFP transceivers are offered with digital diagnostic monitoring per the SFF-8472 standard and are available with TriQuint’s colour-coded bail latch that prevents in-service removal and operates in all faceplate designs.

Samples of the transceivers are available for evaluation in 2Q2004 with volume production beginning in 3Q2004.
