Reflex Photonics to show its new-generation 150G LightVISION industrial embedded optical transceiver at SPIE Photonics West 2018

LightSNAP interface adds a standard MPO pluggable optical interface to the LightVISION optical module.

Reflex Photonics will proudly launch its new LightVISION industrial embedded optical transceiver solution at the upcoming SPIE Photonics West 2018 exhibition.
The innovative LightVISION is a compact, screw-in, robust, industrial, and RoHS embedded parallel optical module that offers superior performance to current optical interconnect technologies such as QSFP+ and QSFP28.
The LightVISION has been especially designed for data intensive imaging and machine vision applications that require high-resolution cameras, sensors, LIDAR, and surveillance cameras. The LightVISION can be deployed in harsh environments found in smart cars and smart cities applications.

The LightVISION optical interconnect solution can support a bandwidth of up to 150 Gbps over 100 meters. Furthermore, it is offered with a standard MTP/MPO snap-in interface that facilitates its integration into commercial products. The LightVISION is highly flexible: it is offered as a 2 to 12-lane (transmit or receive), or as a 4-lane duplex transceiver. All modules operate at up to 12.5 Gbps per lane at ultra-low bit error rates of 10-15.

Guillaume Blanchette, PM at Reflex Photonics comments:

The LightVISION small-form factor is particularly well suited for the new generation of high-speed, high-bandwidth 40GigE cameras. Its revolutionary technology reduces SWaP and improves overall design and ruggedness of these instruments.
Compared to QSFP+, the Reflex Photonics LightVISION occupies 7 times less space, has multiple board mounting option, and consumes less power.
