Open Eye Consortium members get 53Gbps-per-lane single-mode spec for fully analog PAM-4 data-center applications

The Open Eye Consortium multi-source agreement (Open Eye MSA) has announced the availability of its 53Gbps-per-lane single-mode specification to its members, which defines the requirements for fully analog PAM-4 solutions for 50G SFP, 100G DSFP, 100G SFP-DD, 200G QSFP and 400G QSFP-DD and OSFP single-mode modules.

The Open Eye MSA aims to accelerate the adoption of PAM-4 optical interconnects scaling to 50Gbps, 100Gbps, 200Gbps and 400Gbps by expanding on existing standards to enable optical module implementations using less complex, lower-cost, lower-power and optimized analog clock & data recovery (CDR)-based architectures in addition to existing digital signal processing (DSP) architectures.

Multi-vendor interoperability demonstrations of products based on the new specification will be showcased at the China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE 2019) in Shenzhen, China (4-7 September) and at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2019) in Dublin, Ireland (22-26 September). Further, the Open Eye MSA has already begun work on defining the multi-mode specification, targeted for release in Spring 2020.

The Open Eye MSA extends membership to Anritsu, Dust Photonics, Fujitsu Optical Components, HG, Inopticals, Marvell, MultiLane, SAMTEC, and Tektronix.

MACOM and Semtech Corp initiated the formation of the Open Eye MSA with 28 current members in Promoter and Contributing membership classes.

Promoters include: Applied Optoelectronics Inc, Cambridge Industries Group (CIG), Juniper Networks, Luxshare-ICT, MACOM, Mellanox, Molex, and Semtech Corp.

Contributors include: Anritsu, Accelink, Cloud Light Technology, ColorChip, Dust Photonics, Fujitsu Optical Components, HG, InnoLight, Inopticals, Keysight Technologies, Marvell, Maxim Integrated, MultiLane, O-Net, Optomind, SAMTEC, Source Photonics, Sumitomo Electric and Tektronix.
