Avago expands 12-channel parallel optics transmitter/receiver module family to 150G and 168G

Avago Technologies has introduced four new sets of Atlas Optical Engine 12-channel parallel optics transmitter and receiver modules, each containing an 850nm vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) array in transmit and a PIN array in receive, respectively.

The 12.5G and 14G MiniPOD modules and the 12.5G and 14G MicroPOD modules are designed to maximize the delivery of 12x12.5Gbps and 12x14Gbps embedded optical solutions targeting high-density backplane and midplane applications for next-generation Ethernet, optical transport networking (OTN), Infiniband and high-speed interconnects.

Compatible with 12xQDR Infiniband, the 12x12.5G MiniPOD AFBR-812VxyZ/AFBR-822VxyZ and MicroPOD AFBR-77D2SZ/AFBR-78D2SZ modules are data-rate-agnostic, supporting 1G to 12.5G. Link distance is up to 100m.

Compatible with 12xFDR Infiniband, the 12x14G MiniPOD AFBR-814VxyZ/AFBR-824VxyZ and MicroPOD AFBR-77D4SZ/AFBR-78D4SZ modules data-rate-agnostic, supporting 1G to 14G. Link distance is up to 50m.

The introduction of the 12.5G and 14G MicroPOD and MiniPOD embedded optics solutions for parallel optics enables users to go beyond the standard 100G solutions by maximizing system bandwidth, channel density and power efficiency in their systems, says Philip Gadd, VP & general manager of Avago’s Fiber Optics Product Division.

Samples of the AFBR-812VxyZ/AFBR-822VxyZ and AFBR-814VxyZ/AFBR-824VxyZ are available in the MiniPOD package, and samples of the AFBR-77D2SZ/AFBR-78D2SZ and AFBR-77D4SZ/AFBR-78D4SZ are available in the MicroPOD package.
