OFC/NFOEC 2011, LOS ANGELES, USA: Avago Technologies announced availability of multiple new solutions in its innovative portfolio of 10 to 120 Gigabit fiber optics, and is demonstrating technologies developed with partners and customers, here at the 2011 Optical Fiber Conference (OFC).
The comprehensive set of optical solutions, which covers both advanced embedded parallel modules and industry-standard pluggable modules, enables designers to differentiate their products and solve interconnect bandwidth challenges.
New Avago optical solutions and demonstrations at OFC include:
* Sampling availability of its small-footprint MiniPOD™ embedded parallel optical transmitters and receivers that enable bandwidth of up to 120 Gigabits per second (Gbps).
* Announcement of the world’s first QSFP+ 40G-iSR4 pluggable parallel optic transceiver module for 40 Gigabit Ethernet applications and high-density 10 Gigabit applications, along with a demonstration of the technology using new Top-of-Rack (ToR) data center switches from leading manufacturers.
* Demonstration of the world’s first multi-Gigabit consumer optical interconnect
Demonstration of a 25-Gbps vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) integrated into an SFP+ platform interoperating with the latest Avago 40-nm Serial/Deserializer (SerDes) core.
“Avago is here at OFC demonstrating our innovative optical portfolio and our intentions to bring fiber optic solutions from the data centers of today to the consumer and home computing applications of tomorrow,” said Philip Gadd, VP and GM of the Fiber Optics Product Division at Avago. “We differentiate ourselves by serving as a technology partner – helping customers differentiate themselves, and their products, leveraging our world-class engineering, innovative technology in lasers, photodetectors and CMOS ICs, and unrivaled supply chain expertise.”
