Innolume Elevates Performance Standards with Unveiling of High-Temperature DFB Lasers at OFC San Diego

Innolume made waves at OFC in San Diego with the debut of its groundbreaking Uncooled High-Temperature DFB lasers, a game-changer in the realm of optical communications. Presented in Eoptolink and HG Genuine 800G DR8 LPO modules, these lasers set new benchmarks for performance and reliability.

Key highlights of Innolume’s high-power DFB lasers include:

  • High Power: Achieving 150mW @70℃, empowering the integration of only 2 lasers per DR8 transceiver.
  • High Efficiency: With an impressive 20% Wall Plug Efficiency (WPE) at 70℃, driving < 8W power consumption in a DR8 LPO transceiver .
  • Insensitive to Optical Feedback: Capable of withstanding feedback up to -18dB, allowing operation without an optical isolator.
  • High Reliability: Fundamentally better reliability due to in situ window structure and resistance to dislocations
  • High manufacturability: QD DFBs are processed on GaAs wafers, which are available in 6 and 8”
  • High Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SMSR): Boasting > 55dB, ensuring superior signal quality.
  • Low Relative Intensity Noise (RIN): Measuring < -145dB/Hz, minimizing bit error rates.

On the Path to Efficiency: Innolume Embarks on Developing Optical Engine for Hyperscale Networks

In the dynamic landscape of hyperscale networking, characterized by surging demand fueled by AI/ML efficiency and reliability are paramount.

Innolume is at the forefront of addressing these challenges, collaborating with leading modulation technology providers to develop the most energy-efficient transceiver optical engine for hyperscalers. Leveraging SiP ring resonators, SiP Mach–Zehnder interferometers, Thin Film Lithium Niobate (TFLN) Mach–Zehnder interferometers, and Barium Titanate (BTO) Mach–Zehnder interferometers, this multi-platform effort aims to deliver the highest efficiency transceiver optical engine yet seen in the industry.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates and collaboration announcements at ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communication), slated for September 22 to 26, 2024, in Frankfurt, Booth #C114. We look forward to seeing you there!
