High performance MEMS-based micro-optic assembly for multi-lane transceivers
Advanced transceivers generally require multi-lane approaches, which necessitates the integration of multiple subcomponents. The use of mature, generally available, and low-cost single element components such as EMLs, silica PLCs, and direct-mod DFBs, integrated in a hybrid fashion and optically aligned with MEMS, provides a practical solution.
