EMCORE to Host Live Demonstration of its micro-ITLA for 40/100/400 Gigabit
Coherent Applications at OFC/NFOEC 2013
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation
(Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components
and subsystems for the fiber optics and solar power markets, announced today
that it will host a live demonstration of its micro-ITLA (micro-Integrable
Tunable Laser Assembly) at the 2013 Optical Fiber Communications Conference
and Exhibition at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 19-21, in booth #3411.
EMCORE invites OFC/NFOEC attendees, industry analysts and members of the media
to view the demonstration of its micro-ITLA throughout the duration of the
show. The demonstration will illustrate the features making the micro-ITLA one
of the most sought after components to power the next generation of
high-performance telecom networks. EMCORE's demonstration will highlight the
flexibility of the micro-ITLA's tuning capability, which allows tuning to any
grid and frequency at different power output levels, with very low noise and
superior frequency accuracy.
"We are very excited to demonstrate the micro-ITLA at OFC/NFOEC 2013," said
Jaime Reloj, Vice President of Business Development for EMCORE."To date more
than 400 samples have been shipped and the product has been designed into
several key customers platforms.The micro-ITLA is currently being used in
multiple field trials, and we are ramping production to meet demand."
The micro-ITLA is based on EMCORE's Clearlight External Cavity Laser (ECL)
technology, which is the most widely-deployed tunable laser source for
high-speed 100 and 400 gigabit per second coherent systems. It is fully C-Band
tunable and EMCORE plans to make available L-Band tunability in the same
form-factor later in 2013.Other advance features such as ultra-low power
dissipation options and ultra-high output power will become available in the
same time frame.
EMCORE will be exhibiting and meeting with customers and industry analysts at
the 2013 Optical Fiber Communications Conference and Exhibition at the Anaheim
Convention Center, March 19-21, in booth #3411.
