Mitsubishi Electric announces compact power-saving 40Gbps DQPSK Quad PD Module


Mitsubishi Electric announced today the launch of a compact, power-saving 40 giga-bits per second (Gbps) differential quadrature phase shift keying (DQPSK) photodiode (PD) module for optical signal reception in transmission devices used to send large data volumes between metropolitan areas. The Mitsubishi 40Gbps DQPSK Quad PD module integrates four photodiodes and two trans-impedance amplifiers in one package, which will contribute to the downsizing of optical transmission equipment. The energy-efficient device also features industry-leading low power consumption.


Mitsubishi Electric will launch the FU-387SPP commercially on June 1 and expects to sell about 500 units per month.
