Avago Announces 40G Transceiver For Data Centres

Field-proven transciever provides seamless transition from 10G to 40G Ethernet

Avago Technologies, a supplier of analogue interface components with a focus on III-V compound and CMOS based semiconductors, has announced the general availability of its 40G bidirectional (BiDi) multimode fibre (MMF) QSFP+ transceiver module, the AFBR-79EBPZ.

Based on Avago VCSEL transmitters, the module is designed for high-speed data centre interconnect and networking applications. It enables 40GbE links on existing installed LC duplex multimode fibre of 10G network, providing an upgrade path to 40G Ethernet. The AFBR-79EBPZ supports 40GbE data transfer over 100 meters of OM3 fibre or 150 meters of OM4 fibre.

"Avago is the industry leader in providing high-speed optical interconnects with an extensive portfolio of highly differentiated, cost-effective solutions that enables the data center network transition to 40G Ethernet", said Philip Gadd, senior vice president and general manager of the Fibre Optics Product Division at Avago.

"Our 40G BiDi transceiver technology is an important breakthrough that has facilitated many of our end customers to transition from 10G to 40G network to meet the ever increasing demand for bandwidth. With the general availability of Avago 40G BiDi MMF QSFP+ transceiver, there will be an accelerated market adoption of 40G Ethernet for data centres," he added.



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 Track!

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.
