ECOC 2011, SAN JOSE, USA: GigOptix Inc., a leading supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming, announced that they will showcase an ultralow power 10Gb/s SFP+ transceiver designed for power conscious datacenter interconnects at the 37th European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communications (ECOC) in Geneva, Switzerland on September 19-22, 2011.
The SFP+ transceiver was implemented using GigOptix’s novel ultralow power HXT/R4101 VCSEL driver and Transimpendence Amplifier (TIA) chipset. The GigOptix solution’s unique system level architecture enables power savings of greater than 60% for power hungry data center interconnects.
The SFP+ transceiver, which is now shipping in production volume, was designed in partnership with Energeia Innovations, which acted as the program manager, and with PCL Technologies, a high volume ODM/OEM manufacturer, who designed the product for manufacturability. The SFP+ transceiver program was executed through the GigOptix’s Virtual-Vertical alliance approach, in order to provide the best cost-performance advanced solution to customers.
GigOptix will showcase the 10G SFP+ module dissipating less than 275mW running a full 10Gb/s link over 100m next week at the ECOC show in Geneva, Switzerland.
