Pilot Photonics launches the iCLA
13th September 2022
As the industry looks towards 1.6T and 3.2T data rates, multi-wavelength coherent superchannels are expected to be required. Comb lasers offer benefits over independent lasers in terms of cost, footprint, and power while also enabling enhanced spectral efficiency and reduced DSP complexity. The integrated comb laser assembly (iCLA) builds on heritage of the iTLA. It uses gain switched comb source technology and monolithically integrated injection locked demultiplexers to deliver multiple coherent wavelengths on individual fibers from a single module that are suitable for driving multiple 400G and 800G coherent optical engines.
