Product Description - 100Gb/s Coherent Receiver

The integrated 100-Gb/s DP-QPSK receiver incorporates two 90° optical hybrids with four pairs of balanced photodetector (PD) and four linear TIAs into a single butterfly package. Unlike other technologies in which the polarization beam splitter (PBS) and/or the power splitter (BS) are not included, Optoplex’s receiver includes both of them with the optical hybrids, PDs and the TIAs to offer a fully integrated solution which will benefit users in terms of completely removing fiber routing and the skew management. The integrated receivers work at the symbol rate up to 32GBaud/s. 

Optoplex’s integrated 100-Gb/s DP-QPSK Coherent Receiver is compatible with OIF’s Implementation Agreement (IA) for Integrated Intradyne Coherent Receivers (OIF2009.033.04). The actual mechanical dimension is 50 ´ 27 ´ 7.5 mm (shorter and thinner than OIF’s maximum allowable dimensions). The high-speed electrical interfaces (RF Outputs) uses co-planar waveguides (CPW) as proposed in OIF’s IA. The low-speed electrical interface (DC Control Pins) uses 40 pins and the same arrangement as specified in OIF2009.033.05 IA.

Features and Benefits of 100Gb/s Coherent Receivers
  • Fully compliant with OIF requirements
  • Built-in PBS and BS
  • Small skew
  • Low phase error
  • High CMRR
  • Optical coherent detection
  • DP-QPSK demodulation
  • 100Gb/s transmission (preferred choice of modulation format)

Typical Performance of DPSK Demodulator

Parameter Definition of DPSK Demodulator

Parameter Definition


Wavelength Range is defined as spectral range over which the DPSK demodulator can operate.

1528.77 ~ 1563.86 nm

DPSK is acronym for Differential Phase-Shift Keying


DLI is acronym for Delay Line Interferometer.


DQPSK is acronym for Differential Quaternary Phase-Shift Keying


DPSK Demodulator is a component that converts phase modulation into amplitude modulation.


Insertion Loss (dB) is the relative peak power level transmitted to the output ports referenced to the 0-dB reference level when the DPSK demodulator is inserted. "On" and "Off" ports are reported separately.

1.7 dB

Insertion Loss Uniformity (dB) is defined as maximum insertion loss difference between the adjacent channels of the two output ports across the whole operating wavelength range.

0.5 dB

Isolation/Extinction Ratio (dB) is defined as the power difference between peak and valley of the spectrum. "On" and "Off" ports are reported separately.

18 dB

Polarization Dependent Loss (PDL) (dB) is the power difference between the two extreme polarization states. "On" and "Off" ports are reported separately.

0.2 dB

Polarization Dependent Frequency Shift (PDFS) (deg) is the maximum frequency difference measured at the valley of power spectrum among all polarization states.

3 deg

Optical Return Loss (dB) is the ratio between the input power and the reflected power over all polarization states at each port , RL = -10×log10(Pr/Pin).

40 dB

Tuning Range (TR) (GHz) is the maximum shift variation of a center frequency of the spectrum driven by applying control voltage to DPSK demodulator.


Tuning Speed (TS) (second) is the time needed by the device to tune the frequency to its half of target position.

1 s

Operating Temperature (°C) is the ambient temperature range over which the device's performance spec can be met.

-5 to 65 °C

Storage Temperature (°C) is the ambient temperature range over which the device can be stored without affecting its intended application afterwards.

-40 to 85 °C
