Optical Communication Products Inc. (OCP) has announced the availability of its industrial (-40C to 85C) and extended (-5C to 85C) temperature XFP pluggable optical transceivers.

"We are addressing the expanded application requirements of the XFP market by offering additional operating temperature options to our portfolio," said Kirk Bovill, OCP's director of marketing. "We are sampling our cost and performance optimized modules to several customers."

The XFP transceiver is designed to provide multiprotocol support for the 10GbE OC-192 SONET/SDH and 10Gbit Fibre Channel to distances of up to 10km. The multirate modules support data rates ranging from 10.7Gbps to 9.95Gbps. These modules are compatible with ITU-T G.691, ITU-T G.709 and Telcordia GR-253 standards.

The serial electrical interface and DDM functionality are based per the XFP MSA. The DDM functionality enables the end-user to monitor internal temperature, DC supply voltage, transmitter bias current, transmitter output power and receive optical signal level in the performance of the XFP transceiver. Integrated DDM functionality also incorporates warnings and alarms to monitor these parameters.
