EMCORE Introduces Model 1997 6 GHz Uncooled Coaxial Laser Module for 5G Wireless at OFC
The rollout of 5G wireless networks is well underway. 2019 saw 5G’s first commercial deployments from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, and smartphone manufacturers will continue to rollout 5G models throughout 2020. EMCORE’s new 1997, 6 GHz uncooled DFB laser module is an ultra-linear, coaxial model optimized for 5G and a variety of wireless infrastructure fiber optic link applications. It is designed to enhance bandwidth and signal integrity for delivery of consistent, reliable wireless signals in temperature-controlled environments. The 1997 is packaged in a compact, hermetic TOSA (Transmitter Optical Sub-Assembly) with monitor photodiode and optical isolator for flexible integration into DAS and small cell modules. It differs from EMCORE’s 1998, 6 GHz cooled DFB laser by eliminating the TEC (Thermoelectric Cooler) and flex circuit connector to provide a lower cost solution for indoor use. It delivers outstanding optical performance over a temperature range of -40 °C to +75 °C.
“Our new 1997 laser expands EMCORE’s line of optical components for extended bandwidth, high-speed wireless applications,” said
At OFC, EMCORE will showcase its complete line of optical chips and packaged components for 5G, Cloud/Data Center, Broadband Access and LiDAR. EMCORE will be meeting with customers and industry analysts in our booth, and invite you to contact us if you are interested in scheduling a meeting.
