Emcore demos Infiniband 56Gb/s FDR, 120Gb/s Ethernet CXP AOCs and 14Gb/s OSAs

In booth 2125 at this week’s Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC 2011) in Los Angeles (8–10 March), Emcore Corp of Albuquerque, NM, USA, which makes components and subsystems for the broadband, fiber-optic, and solar power markets, is demonstrating two new interconnect products, including a 56Gb/s FDR (Fourteen Data Rate) and a 120Gb/s CXP active optical cable (AOC) for high-performance computing (HPC), high-end Ethernet router and switch applications. Emcore is also demonstrating 14Gb/s transmit and receive optical sub-assemblies (TOSA/ROSA) for next-generation Fiber Channel storage-area networks.

High-performance computers, telecom routers, storage networks, grid and cloud computing systems require higher-speed interconnects to support the increasing performance requirements. Emcore claims that the FDR and CXP active optical cable products provide the highest aggregated level of data throughput in a compact, lightweight form-factor capable of supporting the bandwidth needs of these next-generation systems.

The 14Gb/s TOSA/ROSA products enable users to support the latest 16x Fiber Channel data rate as market demand transfers from 4–8Gb/s transceivers to 14Gb/s optical transceivers.

“Emcore is the industry leader in active optical cable sales,” states VP of business development Jaime Reloj. “Leveraging our next-generation VCSEL [vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser] and PIN [photo-detector] we will continue to grow the market,” he reckons.

Emcore’s complete line of datacom products is on display at OFC, including high-bandwidth, parallel optical interconnect products such as the DDR and QDR cables for 4x 20Gb/s and 40Gb/s Infiniband and PCIe applications as well as optically pluggable SNAP12 solutions for up to 75Gb/s telecoms routers, backplane and proprietary high-speed interconnect applications.
