Avago Technologies has demonstrated what is claims is the industry’s first 56Gbps pulse-amplitude modulation (PAM)4 SerDes across copper backplanes and optical interconnects, targeting next-generation switches and routers. Leading OEM customers are presently designing advanced ASIC SoC solutions in 28nm and 16FF+ process technologies utilising the Avago PAM4 SerDes cores.
Avago Technologies, a supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced a unique, cost-effective polymer optical fibre (POF) based strain sensor solution for industrial applications.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
