Shenzhen, China, February 15, 2019 – Gigalight recently announced the launch of the 200G QSFP-DD PSM8 optical transceiver, providing a low-cost 200G optical interconnect solution for data centers moving from 100G to 400G.
Optical interconnect technology is moving from 100G to 200G/400G, and data center evolution has many different paths. Gigalight's unique PSM (Parallel Single-Mode) product line serves one of the low-cost optical interconnects path. The Gigalight PSM product line includes 40G PSM4, 100G PSM4 and 200G PSM8 optical transceivers based on the NRZ encoding format (cost reduction).
As we all know, QSFP-DD has become the darling of the next-generation data center due to its advantage of doubled bandwidth. Gigalight's newly launched 200G QSFP-DD PSM8 optical transceiver meets the QSFP-DD MSA standard and uses a parallel 8-lane (25Gb/s per lane) design with a transmission distance of up to 10km. The product has a significant low power consumption (less than 6.5W) and meets the operating temperature range of 0–70°C. By adopting a self-developed optical engine, not only its production efficiency is able to be improved, but also its cost is able to be significantly reduced.
Gigalight 200G QSFP-DD PSM8 Optical Transceiver Help Data Center Continue to Evolve at Low Cost
In addition to the 40G SR4, 100G SR4 and 200G SR8 parallel multimode VCSEL optical transceivers with traditional advantages, Gigalight is now perfecting full-rate PSM optical transceivers for 10km link transmission. At this point, Gigalight's low-cost solution based on NRZ transmission for parallel optical interconnect applications in the data center has been basically completed and is looking forward to be qualified by customers.
As a global design innovator in the field of optical interconnection hardware, GIGALIGHT integrates the design, manufacturing and sales of active and passive optical components and subsystems, and provides customers with comprehensive and innovatively designed high-speed optical interconnection hardware solutions. The product lines cover optical transceivers, passive optical components, coherent optical modules and subsystems. The key range of services include data centers, 5G bearer networks, metro WDM transmission, ultra-high-definition broadcast video and other application fields.
