Multi-Sourced Parallel Fiber Modules - the 625 Family

Mitel Semiconductor is proud to announce their collaboration with two other major suppliers to create common specifications for Parallel Fiber Modules. Two Multi-Source Agreements (MSAs) have been established, which will set the industry standard for the next generation of parallel fiber-optic modules.

The modules are designed to meet skyrocketing demand for network capacity in proprietary terabit switch/router links as well as very short reach OC-192 and Infiniband connections.

Targeting a variety of high throughput fiber optic communications applications, the new 625 Family from Mitel Semiconductor covers two product types:

These new Parallel Fiber Modules are based on Mitel Semiconductor's patented Smart OSA self-aligning assembly technology, as already employed in the 623 Family of 12, 8 and 4 channel Transmitter and Receiver Modules.

The common features of the new modules are:
