TOKYO, March 15, 2017 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it will begin shipping an avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver optical subassembly (ROSA) capable of supporting 100Gbps optical transmissions on June 1. The new ROSA, which incorporates four high-sensitivity APDs integrated with a compact optical demultiplexer, supports extra-long-haul transmissions, extra-low power consumption and downsizing in Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP28) transceivers.
The device will be displayed at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) 2017 in Los Angeles, California from March 21 to 23.
In response to the growing need to install communication equipment in increasingly confined spaces, Mitsubishi Electric's new APD ROSA offers one of the industry's smallest footprints combined with 40km transmission capability, which will help downsize 100Gbps communication equipment and expand high-speed 100Gbps optical transmission networks.
