Zarlink Semiconductor Inc. has unveiled the long-wavelength Fabry-Perot laser diodes that can be customized for surveillance and graphical recognition systems, video projector transmission and industrial measurement systems.

Fabry-Perot lasers are edge-emitting devices that drive pulsed light along single-mode fiber. Offering a 1,300nm wavelength, it includes the ZL60401, which operates at 622Mbps, the ZL60402 at 2.5Gbps and the ZL 60404 at 1.25Gbps.

The ZL60401 diode features high reliability, a built-in monitor diode, and ball lens or receptable type of packaging. It is designed for use with SC, FC and ST type fiber connectors used in telecom and datacom applications.

In 1,000-unit quantities, each laser diode is priced in the $30 range, including assembly and alignment in a precision, standard single-mode receptacle. Operating temperature range is from -40C to 85C.
