Fujitsu Debuts Driver IC Integrated Modulator for 80km SONET/SDH

3/1/2004 - Fujitsu Compound Semiconductor, Inc. announces a new Driver IC Integrated Modulator Integrated (MI) DFB Laser Diode Module for 80km SONET/SDH applications. The FTM1141GF-C was developed to reduce the size and technical complexity of 10Gb/s Optical Transmitter board designs and includes a driver and MI-DFB laser in one package. This eliminates customer concerns regarding how to handle the RF interfacing between these two components on the board. The FTM1141GF-C has been designed with a differential co-planar electrical interface, which allows for easy interfacing to RF lines on PC boards. The package and pin layout are part of a multi-source agreement. This 1.5um single mode light source operates between 0-75 degC and has optical output power greater than 1dBm.

FCSI’s products include devices for fiber optic digital telecommunications applications in the 622 Mbs – 40 Gb/s range (laser diodes, receiver modules, GaAs IC’s, LN modulators, XFPs, SFPs, and 300 pin MSA transponders), and analog lasers for CATV applications (broadcast and return path). FCSI produces lasers at ITU grid wavelengths for DWDM systems. FCSI’s products also include microwave and millimeter wave RF devices for cellular, handset, broadcast and satellite communications.

Fujitsu Quantum Devices, Limited located in the prefecture of Yamanashi, Japan manufactures these products for the world markets in one of the world’s largest compound semiconductor operations. These operations are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified, with support facilities strategically located throughout the world for assembly and test. Fujitsu performs 100% testing to insure quality and reliability.
