JDSU enters GPON market with optical detector chip

Milpitas, Calif.—JDSU is now shipping an avalanche photo detector (APD) chip designed for gigabit passive optical networks (GPONs) that enable data transmissions for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) offerings.

In order to make APD chips affordable for the GPON market, JDSU leveraged its manufacturing expertise to create what it says is a low-cost optical detector chip. The chip is based on a planar platform, known for higher reliability and easier fabrication.

JDSU is currently developing packaged versions of the APD chip for the GPON space and other telecommunications markets.
