Avicena will showcase the world’s fastest LED modulated at 10Gbps

Avicena is developing ultra-fast LEDs for low power chip-to-chip interconnects and has demonstrated data rates up to 10Gbps which is about an order of magnitude faster than current LED based communication links. These LEDs are specifically optimized for high-speed communication and called Cavity-Reinforced Optical Micro-Emitters or CROMEs. They form a key building block of the Avicena’s novel LightBundleTM interconnect together with multi-core fiber cables and the Si based PDs. The LightBundleTM offers class leading bandwidth density of 10Tbps/mm2 as well as high power efficiency of < 0.5pJ/bit with a reach of up to 10m.

OBR and High-Resolution Distributed Loss Analysis for 1060 nm Systems

Luna introduces the OBR 4610 Optical Backscatter Reflectometer who extends the industry-leading analyzer platform to a new class of laser components, integrated photonics, and LIDAR components. The OBR 4610 can scan a component designed to operate in the 1060 nm range and map out distributed loss (IL and RL) with a spatial resolution of less than 10 micrometers. The analyzer also provides spectral analysis of the optical reflection signal as well as phase information. The OBR 4610 is an addition to the existing OBR 4600 family that includes analyzers for C, L and O bands.

Highly Integrated Shuffle with multi-core, multi-size, multi-package forms

The product Shuffle from HYC is based on low insertion loss and high reliable light path cross connection technology to solve the complex problems of traditional data center cabling. On the one hand, it achieves the possibility of multiple exchange directions and ability of more flexible configurations as same as large exchange capacity, which greatly simplify the optical fiber connection, economize the space occupation and realize the nanosecond time delay. On the other hand, the maintenance is simple.

To achieve the real “zero jumper” highly integrated, all links have been completed before the delivery inspection to avoid any possible human operation mistake.

PMC Adds MEMS Mirror Arrays for WSS and ROADM Applications

Preciseley Microtechnology Corporation (PMC) has introduced MEMS micromirror arrays for wavelength multiplexing and amplitude modulation applications in gigabit-plus telecommunications and data center fiber optic networks. These micromirror arrays provide unsurpassed performance and reliability to meet the demanding requirements of today’s high-speed fiber networks. The devices use electrostatic actuation to achieve fast tuning over a wide tuning range while minimizing power consumption. The architecture enables larger mirror apertures while providing high durability against shock and vibration, and achieves low insertion loss. Additionally, these devices can be integrated with the VOA function to reduce the device size for space constrained applications.

Get ready for 224 Gbps – Comprehensive multi-platform solutions for optical and electrical test

Keysight offers solutions supporting the entire 800G design cycle with solutions for 112 Gbps electrical conformance tests.  As speeds increase,  800G will switch on the optical side to 224 Gbps, allowing for the reduction of lanes and cost, but requiring new test solutions. Different modulation formats are also under discussion such as 100GBd PAM4 and 80GBd PAM6.
Design margins become increasingly tight with 800G as devices and interfaces become faster and more complex. Making it critical to get a detailed, reliable insight into the devices to explore test margins.

Visit us at ECOC for a live demonstration of our 224 Gbps test solutions.
