The NX8346-series TOSA is coming in a compact CAN package which is electrically isolated from the receptacle and integrates an InGaAs monitor PIN-PD. The receptacle is compatible with the small size LC optical connector making the NX8346-series TOSA ideal for installation into 10Gbit/s small form factor pluggable (XFP1/SFP+2) optical transceiver modules.
A small flexible printed circuit (FPC) which is attached to the stamp of the CAN package makes the electrical interface between the TOSA and the transceiver. To meet the different size requirements of XFP/SFP+ optical transceivers, there are two different FPC lengths available. The NX8346TB features a standard XMD-MSA3 compliant FPC which is suitable for XFP transceivers. To meet the reduced size requirements of SFP+ compliant transceivers the NX8346TY and NX8346TS TOSA utilize a short length FPC with 20% reduced size compared to the XMD-MSA3 compliant FPC.
Aiming the 10Gb/s Datacom and Telecom market, the NX8346-series TOSA are compliant with 10GBASE-LW/LR, 10G Fiber Channel and SONET OC-192 standards.
NX8346-series TOSA are coming with a lead-free internal optical isolator fully compliant with the latest requirements of RoHS directive for fiber optic communication systems.
