Four Types of 100G QSFP28 Transceivers Overview

For 100G optical transceivers, there are a number of form factors including CFP/CFP2/CFP4, CXP and QSFP28. Among these different 100G form factors, it appears that the market has chosen QSFP28 as the primary form factor for 100G links. Hence, this post will focus on several types of 100G QSFP28 transceivers—100GBASE-SR4 QSFP28 transceiver, 100GBASE-PSM4 QSFP28 transceiver, […]

Optical Transceiver Design For TDM PONs

The optical transceiver (transmitter and receiver) used for optical-to-electrical conversion is a key component in optical communication systems. In a PON system, an optical transmitter and receiver at the optical line terminal (OLT) or optical network units (ONUs) are typically packaged together to form a bidirectional optical subassembly (BOSA). The figure below shows the architecture […]

Optical Transceiver Module Tutorial From FiberStore

What is an Optical Transceiver module? Optical Transceiver is a computer chip that uses fiber optic technology to communicate between other devices. This is opposed to a chip that transfers information electrically through metal wires and circuits or by the process of using various wave forms to communicate data. An optical transceiver chip is an […]
