Shenzhen, China, November 29, 2017 – Gigalight today announces that the mass productions of Gigalight 100G optical transceivers with high performance (100G QSFP28 CWDM4 and 100G QSFP28 PSM4 ) have been completed, which adopt the same tech platform and producing platform.
The development of data center leads to the huge demands on the 100G QSFP28 CWDM4/PSM4 optical transceivers. For many top-ranking companies manufacturing optical transceivers, the research and development of samples is easy, but how to produce them in volume and to guarantee their quality and reliability has always been a trouble in the industry. Gigalight 100G CWDM4/PSM4 is finally developed into the products with high productivity and high reliability after a long-time research and development from the COB tech to the third-generation hybrid hermetic encapsulation.
During the establishment of product lines, the CWDM4/PSM4 is produced in the 10000 grade dust-free workshop with constant temperature and constant humidity. Besides, this workshop covers 2000 square meters, and is equipped with 3 sets of fully-automatic wire bond/die bond devices with high precision and other automatic devices for producing and testing. At present, the capability of production is producing 20k optical modules per month. The brief introductions about PSM4 and CWDM4 will be respectively involved in the following contents.
The general power consumption of PSM4 optical transceivers produced in volume is almost less than 3.0W; the margin of optic eye diagram is higher than 20%; the receiving sensitivity of RX optic is higher than -14.0dbm under 1E-5BER; the jitter rms is less than 2.5ps. In addition, over 10KM optical transmission without error code is available for this module.
The general power consumption of CWDM4 optical transceivers produced in volume is almost less than 3.0W; the margin of optic eye diagram is higher than 20%; the receiving sensitivity of RX light is higher than -10dbm under 1E-5BER; the jitter rms is less than 2ps. Moreover, over 2-10KM optic link circuit transmission is available for this module.
In 2011, Gigalight launched leading data-center active optical cables in domestic at the first time. After that, Gigalight successively launched 100G AOC, 100G SR4/LR4 optical transceiver, 200G QSFP-DD SR4 optical transceiver and AOC.
The announcement that CWDM4/PSM4 optical module can be officially put into production means that Gigalight has completely controlled all technical secrets about the COB tech platform, space optical design platform, AWG platform and hybrid hermetic encapsulation platform. All efforts build the solid foundation for Gigalight challenging to silicon tech platform.
