BERLIN -- GigOptix a leading supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming, will showcase, in partnership with VI Systems GmbH, a 4 x 25 Gbit/s 850nm VCSEL based transmitter evaluation board at the 38th European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communications (ECOC) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The evaluation board features the programmable VCSEL driver IC HXT4101A and the V25-850C4 chip a four channel 850nm VCSEL (vertical cavity surface emitting laser) chip array with a pitch size of 250 um which matches the standard pitch size of ribbon fibers. The transmitter is equipped with 4 pairs of high speed electrical connectors for differential signal input and 4 channels of 50/125 um ribbon fiber as optical output. The fiber is terminated with a standard MT connector.

Target applications are short reach optical interconnects in the computer industry. The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) defined the first interfaces to operate at data rates of 25 and 28 Gbit/s. Further standards for serial transmission at ultrahigh-speed data rates of 26-56 Gb/s are currently being developed within Fibre Channel 32GFC and 64GFC, OIF CEI-56G-VSR and the Ethernet IEEE 100GNGOPTIX and the Infiniband EDR and HDR.
