Reflex Photonics today announced that it will be showing its latest product, a 40 Gbps QSFP transceiver module as well as solutions from its parallel channel product line at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference/National Fiber Optics Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) in Los Angeles, California from March 6 – 8th, 2012. Conference attendees are invited to visit Reflex Photonics Booth (#2631) during the event to see its latest technology offerings.
The 4-channel 40 Gbps QSFP Transceiver provides bi-directional electrical-to-optical / optical-to-electrical connectivity of over 300 meters using a parallel channel, multimode optical fiber cable. This 300 m reach is more than 3x the distance required by the IEEE standard which will enable very large data center applications at low cost. The QSFP offers an extremely compact and lightweight solution for 40GASE-SR4 40 Gbps Ethernet, OTU3, QDR InfiniBand™ and proprietary backplane interconnections.
Reflex Photonics will showcase a variety of high speed parallel channel, optical data communications solutions including:
- CFP Transceivers – The CFP Transceiver provides bi-directional electrical-to-optical / optical-to-electrical connectivity over 300 meters of parallel channel, multimode optical fiber cable with an aggregate data rate of up to 112 Gbps. The Reflex CFP is designed for compliance to the CFP multi-source agreement and to the IEEE 802.3ba 100GBASE-SR10 standard for data communications. The Reflex SR-10 CFP offers a standards based low cost / low power alternative to single-mode solutions.
- 120 Gbps LightABLE™ – This technology allows engineers to add high speed parallel optical connectivity to almost any PCB design. The tiny low profile LightABLE optical engines are easily integrated into a PCB layout and industry standard MT-terminated ribbon fibers attach to the optical engines, carrying high speed optical data (up to 11 Gbps per fiber) from a few cm to 100 m. A few Gbps to over 1 Tbps of optical connectivity can be delivered directly to an ASIC or FPGA; bypassing the need for large pluggable optical modules.
- Light on Board® – Reflex Photonics’ Light on Board technology provides an optically enabled BGA packaging solution for high bandwidth short reach optical interconnections. Light on Board is an extreme high density, high speed, optical interconnect solution that offers superior performance at low cost.
