CIG launches 400G, 200G and 100G modules for data-center applications

In stand #512 (Hall 4) at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2019) in Dublin, Ireland (23-25 September), Shanghai-based Cambridge Industries Group (CIG, a ODM/JDM/OEM supplier for the ICT industry) has announced a full line-up of 400G, 200G and 100G optical modules for data-center applications. The product line consists of the following:

  • 400G QSFP56-DD FR4/LR4 and DR4;
  • 200G QSFP56-FR4, both digital (DSP) and analog (CDR) versions; and
  • next-generation 100G QSFP28-DR1/FR1/LR1, CWDM4, LR4.

“Adding a full line of 400G, 200G and 100G optical modules into our product offering reaffirms our commitment to bring innovative high-quality, low-cost and low-power technologies into the industry,” says CEO Gerry Wong. “Specifically, CIG was one of the first companies to introduce 400G QSFP56-DD FR4 modules into the market. Earlier this year, CIG announced the world’s first 200G analog CDR-based optical module for data-center interconnect application which, together with our large-scale, high-quality automated manufacturing capabilities, allows CIG to quickly meet the needs of the telecom and datacom markets,” he adds.

“Sales of next-generation Ethernet transceivers are on track to exceed $200m in 2019 and reach $4bn by 2024,” notes Vladimir Kozlov Ph.D., founder & CEO of LightCounting Market Research. “Our market forecast report assumes that suppliers will be able to scale up production volumes and reduce cost to enable rapid adoption of next-generation Ethernet transceivers.”

CIG says that it is applying its expertise in optical module design and manufacturing to 400G and 100G products and the new 200G modules targeted for data-center applications. PAMSoft, a suite of firmware and software developed by CIG, was able to extend the reach of 200G FR4 modules’ PAM-4 signals from 2km to more than 10km. PAMSoft also provides an end-to-end manufacturing platform enabling one-click automated operation to tune, test and calibrate the modules, thus shortening the manufacturing time 10-fold.

CIG’s 400G FR4, 100G single-wavelength (100G DR1 and FR1) and legacy 100G (100G LR4 and CWDM4) modules are generally available. 400G DR4 modules will be available in fourth-quarter 2019. 200G FR4 modules based on analog CDR or DSP are under development and expected to sample in early Q4/2019. General availability is expected in late Q4/2019.
