ALHAMBRA, Calif., March 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (NASDAQ:EMKR), a leading provider of Indium Phosphide (InP) optical chips, components, subsystems and systems for the broadband and specialty fiber optics market, announced today introduction of the new MEDALLION 7110 Series of CATV Fiber Amplifiers which will be on display at the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC) in booth #1228 at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 22–24, and also at the China Content Broadcasting Network (CCBN) show at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing, China, March 24–26.
EMCORE’s new MEDALLION 7110 Series of Fiber Amplifiers is the latest addition to the 7000 series of optical amplifiers. The MEDALLION 7110 offers exceptionally high power and low noise figures demanded by CATV applications. It is packaged in a compact 1 RU housing, compatible with industry-standard 19- and 23-inch rack systems, while offering up to 31.5 dBm of pre-splitter output power, and up to 16 SC/APC output ports. Various output power and port count configurations are available with optional integrated WDM filters for RFoG (Radio Frequency over Glass) or RF overlay in FTTx which further preserves rack space and reduces cost by eliminating a separate network element.
"The MEDALLION 7110 fiber amplifier is an ideal companion product to our MEDALLION series of rack-mount CATV transmission equipment that further pushes the boundaries of high density, high optical power launch and split architectures deployed in RFoG and RF Overlay for FTTH networks,” said Gyo Shinozaki, Vice President Marketing for EMCORE. “The MEDALLION series is designed for network systems providers that demand the highest-quality, economical delivery of High- and Ultra-High-Definition video and audio, along with the highest bandwidth data transmission for their customers,” added Shinozaki.
At OFC and CCBN, EMCORE will be also showcasing its chip level devices portfolio for Telecom, GPON FTTx, Datacom and Wireless applications including 1310, 1490 and 1550 nm laser diode chips, 10G Fabry-Perot laser chips, and 2.5G and 10G APD photodetectors. In addition, EMCORE will be featuring its full line of Distributed Feedback (DFB) butterfly lasers, DOCSIS 3.1 lasers, TO-56 lasers, low-noise optical receivers, broadband photodiodes, and components for wireless and Distributed Antenna System (DAS) applications.
EMCORE will be meeting with customers, industry analysts and the media at our booth #1228 and we invite you to contact us if you would like to schedule a meeting.
