XFP Optical Transceiver—850 nm over MMF for up to 300 m Reach
The Lumentum 10G 850 nm XFP Optical Transceiver is a fully duplex, integrated fiber optic transceiver that provides a high-speed serial link at 9.95 to 11.35 Gbps signaling rates. The module complies with the 10 Gigabit Small Form Factor, Pluggable (XFP) Multisource Agreement (MSA).
The transceiver complies with IEEE 802.3-2005 Clause 52 10GBase-SW/SR (Ethernet) and 10GFC 1200-MX-SN-I (Fibre Channel) over greater than 300 m of 2000 MHz•km multimode fiber.
The transceiver integrates the receive and transmit path onto one module. On the transmit side, the 10G serial data stream is recovered, retimed, and passed to a laser driver. The laser driver controls an 850 nm vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL), enabling data transmission over multimode fiber through an industry-standard LC connector. On the receive side, the 10G optical data stream is recovered from a PIN photodetector/transimpedance amplifier, retimed, and passed to an output driver. This module features a hot-pluggable XFI-compliant electrical interface.
