As industry demand surges for long reach, low power solutions supporting next generation 28 Gbps products and data center applications, Molex Incorporated ( Lisle, IL) recently announced plans to unveil a line of QuatroScaleactive optic solutions designed for 100, 200 and 400 Gbps products. The new QuatroScale solutions are designed based on silicon photonics CMOS technology, which achieves the longest reach and lowest bit error rate (BER), coupled with the highest reliability of any 28 Gbps product on the market. Features include:

  • 1.5W per 100 Gbps (but can go up to 4km of distance). 
  • 1e-18 BER—and over three billion device hours accumulated without an in module failure.
  • 16 bi-directional channels operating at 28 Gbps, with data rates scalable up to 400 Gbps bandwidth.
