TriQuint Optoelectronics announced the availability of XFP MSA compliant 10Gbps transceivers for SONET/SDH 40km (short haul) and 80km (long haul), as well as 10GbE 40km (extended reach) applications.

According to the company, the new transceivers offer customers superior performance by utilizing TriQuint's EML optical engines. "Our customers can now purchase 40km and 80km XFP transceivers from one of the industry's long-standing suppliers, thus reducing supply chain risk," said Product Marketing Manager Ray Aubert.

The 10Gbps XFP transceivers utilize the company's Qube optical engines, which can be used in any small form factor 2.5Gbps and 10Gbps pluggable transceiver, as well as small form factor 300-pin transponders. The devices are designed for use in network transmission systems and operate at SONET OC-192 standard and FEC rates, while for SDH, they operate at STM-64 standard and FEC rates, according to the ITU-T G.959.1 and G.691 standards. For high-speed data communications, the transceivers can operate at both 10G Ethernet rate and 10G Fiber Channel rate according to the IEEE 802.3ae standards.

The XFPs offer low power dissipation (under 4W) at 70C case temperature.

Samples are shipping now to select customers, and TriQuint expects full production to ramp in 1Q05.
