NeoPhotonics introduced a new product line of SFF and SFP bi-directional transceivers for fiber to the home (ftth) applications. Now available for initial shipments, the transceivers operate at data rates from 125Mbps to 1.25Gbps and are compliant with IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) standards.

The devices meet the SFP and SFF-8472 MSA standards. The SFF transceivers offer various pig tailing options and the SFP transceivers are hot pluggable. The transceivers incorporate either MQW-FP or DFB lasers at 1,310-, 1,490- and 1,550nm. The receiver designs are based on PIN diodes.

"Bi-directional transceivers that operate over a single strand of fiber are key in lower cost FTTH applications," said Jeffrey Lo, VP of active components at NeoPhotonics. "The single fiber concept reduces system cost, doubles capacity and simplifies network design and fiber management. Combining this advantage with the MSA compliant form factors of SFF & SFP transceivers is key to reducing capital and operating expenditures in FTTH deployments."

The transceivers are already shipping.
