EMCORE Corporation announced the introduction of the 2804 Generation II 1310 nm fibre optic transmitter for Cable Television (CATV) applications. This second generation 2804 is a fully redesigned version of the popular 2804 line of transmitters.

The 2804 Generation II transmitter features EMCORE's linear analogue DFB laser as the foundation of a product packaged in an economical form-factor. This makes the 2804 Generation II a perfect fit for small and independent operators who require a reliable, easy to install high-performance solution.

The 2804 Generation II transmitter is offered in a 19in, 1 RU rack-mount, fully-contained enclosure and features output power up to 15dBm. Several different configurations can be requested including single or dual power supplies, plus an innovative dual transmitter option is available. The dual transmitter option allows users to deploy two 1310nm transmitters in the same space traditionally used for one transmitter.

"The new 2804 Generation II transmitter makes EMCORE's laser and RF technology accessible to small and independent operators," said Jaime Reloj, VP of Business Development for EMCORE. "The innovative design offers the operator flexibility to configure their system in a variety of ways."

EMCORE will debut its new 2804 Generation II 1310nm transmitter at the 2014 CCBN show in Beijing, China on March 20-22. EMCORE expects to begin shipping the 2804 Generation II transmitter beginning in the second quarter of 2014.
