Infineon XPAK modules support 10GbE over 300m

Infineon Technologies has announced that it has demonstrated the industry's first 10GbE XPAK-compliant transceiver module operating over 300m of low-bandwidth multimode fiber. The XPAK optical transceiver used a 1,310nm laser with EDC (electronic dispersion compensation) technology to extend the distance over which 10GbE data can be transmitted error-free.

The EDC technology compensates for dispersion and other impairments that cause inter-symbol interference and performance degradation. Without EDC, end-users need to either deploy high-cost, high-bandwidth multimode fiber to reach 300m at 10Gbps, or use a solution that requires multiplexing four separate lasers of different wavelengths.

First samples of the small-form-factor modules with integrated EDC will be available in the first half of 2004.
