ROSA-type receiver from Oki Electric

Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd announced two models of receiver optical sub assembly (ROSA)-type optical receiver modules. These modules are for use in XMD-MSA (10Gbps Miniature Device Multi Source Agreement) applications that are compliant with the small transceiver XFP (10Gbps small Form-factor Pluggable) used to establish high-speed LAN and metropolitan area networks.

With the expanding volume of data transmission over the Internet, optical receivers and transmitters that are compliant with XFP are being introduced, which is an industry-standard for 10Gbit optical transmission over long distance backbone and interim distance in metropolitan areas. In order to easily expand the transmission capability while using existing equipment, a small-receptacle reception module is required to be installed into the transmission system easily.

The 10Gbit-PIN-ROSA (OD8643R) has a minimum light sensitivity of -20dBm and transimpedance of 1.4kiloohms. The 10Gbit-APD ROSA (OF3643R) has -27dBm minimum light sensitivity and 1.4kiloohm transimpendance.

"We have been providing the widely used optical receiver modules compliant with MSA for surface mounted packaging-type 10Gbit optical receivers. However, with the expected increase in demand for a ROSA-type receiver, we developed the ROSA-type receiver module for XMD-MSA compliant with XFP," said Masayuki Tsuboi, president of optical component company at Oki.

Samples of OD8643R and OF3643R are available for $128 and $298, respectively.
