Avago launches first 10Gb/s parallel optic module with 120Gb/s data throughput

Avago Technologies of San Jose, CA, USA has launched a 10Gb/s parallel optics transmitter and receiver pair that can reach data throughput levels of up to 120Gb/s.

The AFBR-810BxxZ transmitter and AFBR-820BxxZ receiver high-density modules both leverage 12 independent channels and offer 10Gb/s per channel for an aggregate of 120Gb/s per link, and can support distances of up to 50m. Additionally, with minimal power consumption needs, they require only 2.4W per module.

The high-speed parallel optic modules are based on a ‘SNAP 12-like’ pluggable form factor with an upgraded pin-out configuration to deliver what is claimed to be superior signal integrity with support for the new P-POD pin-out standard. They are also keyed to prevent mis-plugging with existing parallel optic modules.

Pricing begins at less than $1000 per pair in volume quantities.
