Mellanox Doubles Silicon Photonics Ethernet Transceiver Speeds To 200 Gb/s
200 Gb/s DR4 and VCSEL-based SR4 transceivers target next generation cloud and web 2.0 hyperscale data centres
Mellanox has introduced a new line of 200 Gb/s silicon photonics and VCSEL-based transceivers in the same QSFP28 package as today's 100Gb/s products. These new transceivers double the bandwidth for hyperscale Web 2.0 and cloud 100 Gb/s networks. Mellanox is also introducing 200 Gb/s Active Optical Cables (AOCs) and Direct Attach Copper Cables (DACs), including breakout cables, to allow for end-to-end 200Gb/s Ethernet networks.
"Our hyperscale customers can double their bandwidth and scale to 200G while using their existing installed fibre and without changing to a new form factor," said Amir Prescher, Senior Vice President of Business Development and General Manager of the interconnect business, Mellanox Technologies. "There is no need to wait for a new 400G form factor. Using the same QSFP package as 100G, Mellanox's 200Gb/s products provide better ROI and compelling cost advantages today."
The next generation of switches and servers will run at 50G per lane interfaces. These transceivers and DACs support the new IEEE 200GAUI electrical standard, using 25GBaud PAM4 signaling, literally doubling the lane speed.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
