WEST HILLS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–September 19, 2022–

Source Photonics, a global leader in innovative and reliable optical communications technology that enables communications and connectivity in data centers, metros and access networks, today announced that it has exceeded shipment of more than 2.5 million pieces of 28G and 53G high-speed EML laser chips for data centers and optical transmission applications at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) – a leading industry exhibition that is held in Basel, Switzerland from September 19 to 21, 2022. In addition to high-end EML chips, Source Photonics exceeds shipments of over 100 million pieces of 2.5G, 10G and 25G FP/DFB and 10G EML chips for the PON access and wireless backhaul markets.

Source Photonics began production shipments of 53G EML with single 100G lambda PAM4 based 100G/400G transceivers when 400G industry adoption started to take off from 2021. It was introduced and qualified successfully by many of our key customers and partners throughout 2020. the in-house developed 53G EML chips and 100G PAM4 technology, Source Photonics has entered volume production of a series of product families which include 100G DR1/FR1/LR1/ER1 QSFP28, 400G DR4/FR4/LR4 QSFP56-DD and 800G DR8/2xFR4 QSFP-DD800/OSFP.

Source Photonics manufactures its state-of-the-art InP EMLs for 100G PAM4 operation at its high-volume in-house factory in Taiwan with market-leading expertise in EML performance and quality. These EMLs allow higher bandwidth operations with a conventional lumped element electrode structure. They can operate with minimized required input voltage swing to reduce power consumption of associated ICs and provide superior waveform quality for PAM4 signaling. They have passed 10,000 hour High Temperature Lifetime (HTOL) reliability testing for quality assurance, which helps deliver reliable, high-speed, high-volume modules while maintaining high-quality link performance at lower cost and power per bit. From a performance perspective, a single 100G PAM4 lambda has the capability to run up to 40 km of single-mode fiber depending on telecom requirements.

“We are delighted to announce this milestone of delivering 2,500,000 high-speed EML chips, as it is both an extraordinary achievement for the optical market and for Source Photonics. Today’s announcement further reinforces our commitment and leadership in the large-scale production capability of higher-speed EML chips and transceivers. said John Wang, CEO of Source Photonics, “Vertical integration remains Source Photonics’ core business model and competitiveness. Over 90% of transceiver products now use our own optical chips, including the latest 800G products currently in production. The company continues to invest in advanced technologies and will lead the transition from 53G EMLs to 100G EMLs for future products.

The next logical step is to support the 8x200G design of 1.6T modules. Source Photonics has pioneered development of 200G PAM4 EML chips in its market-leading EML portfolio to achieve over 60 GHz modulation bandwidth. And the technical feasibility of harnessing 200G signaling by lambda PAM4 has been demonstrated to span fiber distances of 2km and 10km. It is foreseeable that the commercialization of the 1.6T modules will take place in 2023.

“Shipments of 28GBaud and 53GBaud EML chips continue to increase despite progress made by Source Photonics,” commented Vladimir Kozlov, CEO and Founder of LightCounting Market Research, “The next wave of development cycle is 200G per PAM4 lane for support 1.6T transceivers based on 8x200G optics.We expect 100Gb EMLs can play an important role to enable early prototypes due to time to market, and deployments initial ones will likely take place in 2025.”
