10G XFP Transceivers

The GT10-XFP-M5LA-706 is the latest addition to the GTRAN 10Gbps product line. The pluggable module is designed for small size and low cost while using the highest quality optics and is fully compliant with the XFP MSA specification.

Designed for ease of use, the GT10-XFP-M5LA-706 is an integrated high-speed data transceiver module optimized for OC-192, STM-64, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Fiber Channel applications with and without FEC. The 1550nm EML lasers can operate from 0 to 70°C and can reach up to 80km. A APD-based optical receivers complements the transmit optics. High-performance laser driver and receiver amplifiers are incorporated to provide optimum signal levels throughout the assembly. A retimer circuit takes in electrical data from the XFI interface for transmit via the laser module as well as taking in electrical data from the optical receiver, re-timing it, and sending it back to the user. The use of a single-chip retimer circuit reduces power consumption, saves space, and enables XFI loopback to facilitate advanced diagnostics. Low-noise clock/data recovery yields full compliance for jitter generation. The MSA compatible I2C serial interface with discrete status and alarm signals allow monitoring of key operating parameters.

The GT10-XFP-M5LA-706 is manufactured in a compact assembly with a hot-pluggable connector. All sensitive active components are hermetically sealed. The module runs on a dual +5V / +3.3V supply. All electrical signals are interfaced via a single, hot-pluggable, electrical connector, while the optical signals are provided via LC receptaclesn.
