product announcement of 40G photoreceiver MPRV series
(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) u²t Photonics AG, a provider of innovative, leading edge optoelectronic components for fiber optic systems, announced its next generation 40 G receiver platform following the XLMD MSA footprint.

The new MPRV series will offer a family of very compact 40G receivers for OOK keying transmission in both, very short reach applications but also long reach applications. The product allows for on-board mounting and direct attaching of the device to the CDR/DeMux circuitry and incorporates u²t's well established wave-guided pin diode together with a limiting amplifier supporting both optical windows at 1310nm and 1550nm.

The new series of receivers will offer products with various specifications supporting the requirements from multiple applications and designs of transponder and system manufacturers with MPRV1332 as the first product.

"This new product has been developed at the right time following the XLMD MSA", said Jens Fiedler, VP Sales and Marketing at u²t, "and is not only supporting currently ongoing design activities of transponder manufacturers towards Small Form Factor devices but is also supporting the standardization activities towards a cost competitive 40GbE serial approach".

u²t announced the availability of prototypes of its new product platform starting in September this year. The MPRV series is targeted to be ready for volume production in the first half of 2009 and addresses especially the low cost and high volume very short reach (VSR) market.

The product will be demonstrated at this year's ECOC, 22nd to 24th September in Brussels at u2t's booth #188.
