Emcore Optical Cable Pumps Out 120Gbit/s

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- EMCORE Corporation (Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optics and solar power markets, announced today the availability of the 120 Gigabits per second (Gbps) CXP Active Optical Cable for customer sampling. Designed for High-Performance Computing (HPC), high-end Ethernet router and switch applications, the 120 Gbps CXP is the latest in the EMCORE's Connects Cables line of high-speed active optical cables.

The EMCORE 120 Gbps CXP is a high-density, low-weight, edge-mounted, bidirectional interconnect that can reach up to 100 meters with an exceptionally low bit error rate (BER). This results in significantly less performance degradation over longer distances compared to traditional copper cables. The CXP is more than 60% lighter with a bend radius that is 70% less than 26 AWG copper cables. This combination of lower weight, smaller bend radius and the flexibility of the CXP make it easier to install, maintain and repair cluster cabling without straining server connectors, or affecting neighboring cables. The EMCORE CXP is hot-pluggable and fully compliant with the CXP Multi-source Agreement (MSA) and RoHS 6/6.

EMCORE Connects Cables offer all the advantages of optical interconnects at an affordable price. They reduce the installation and maintenance costs of computer clusters, enabling very large clusters and are ideal for building systems based on any architecture that requires long distances and multiple computer nodes in very dense configurations.
