FCSI Introduces APD Receiver Optical Sub Assembly for 10G Applications

3/1/2004 - Fujitsu Compound Semiconductor, Inc. (FCSI) of San Jose, CA announces a new APD Receiver Optical Sub Assembly (ROSA) for 10G Base-ER Ethernet and 10Gb/s SONET / SDH LR2 applications. The APD ROSA is designed for Xenpack, X2 transponder, and XFP transceiver applications. An APD and a TIA are integrated in a small 8 pin package - FRM5N141QW (LC) and FRM5N141QY (SC). Including the receptacle, the package size is W5.7 x H5.7 x L17 mm. The receptacle has a fiber stub to guarantee an optical return loss of 27 dB. A thermistor is also integrated into the package for APD temperature monitoring. The APD ROSA has a high sensitivity of -27 dBm typical and low TIA power consumption of 0.3 W or less.

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.
