Tunable Multiprotocol XFP Optical Transceiver, LambdaFLEX Negative Chirp

The Lumentum LambdaFLEX™ tunable XFP module is a high-performance pluggable transceiver for use in the C-band window, covering 1528 nm to 1566 nm. The module supports data rates from 9.95 Gbps to 11.35 Gbps and is provided in an XFP, MSA-compliant package.

The optical transmitter utilizes the Lumentum negative-chirp tunable integrated laser Mach-Zehnder (ILMZ) chip, where channels are calibrated to support the ITU-T 50 GHz C-band grid with ±2.5 GHz stability. 

The receive path comprises an APD receiver with linear amplifier and CDR. For optimum system performance in noise loaded applications, control of the receiver decision threshold is provided. Device control, monitoring, and diagnostic functions are provided via 2-wire serial interface.
