Shenzhen, China, July 30, 2021 − GIGALIGHT has announced its accomplishment of technical research on submersible optical transceivers today. The technological fruit can provide liquid-cooled data centers with high-reliability and high cost-performance optical interconnection solutions, and is applicable to all data center optical transceivers developed by GIGALIGHT.

Liquid-cooled data center technology has been mature for a long time, but related applications have not yet been popularized. According to industry research, a data center’s PUE can be easily controlled to about 1.1 through the application of liquid cooling. If the power density of a single cabinet reaches 20KW, the liquid cooling technology can help save energy effectively.

GIGALIGHT has conducted a number of researches on immersion cooling technology of optical transceivers and realized a series of advantages as follows:

  • Direct immersion liquid cooling method is available
  • Adopting optimized optical device sealing design (patent pending), which can effectively prevent the coolant from entering the optical circuit and prevent the solution from affecting the optical circuit
  • Passed 72 hours of 0.5 kg liquid pressurization test (to improve the fluidity of the coolant), showing its high reliability and long-term stability of data transmission
  • The temperature range of the liquid environment is 10-55℃
  • Working depth in liquid can reach deeper than 1m
  • Optical transceiver material selection meets the long-term compatibility requirements of liquid cooling

The types of immersion cooling optical transceivers launched by GIGALIGHT this time are listed as follows:

It it worth mentioning that GIGLALIGHT will demonstrate the technological achievement at 2021 CIOE.
