CAESAREA, Israel -- ColorChip, a leading designer and manufacturer of optical sub-systems and components based on Application Specific Photonic Integrated Circuits (ASPICs), announced today the availability of the industry’s first QSFP 40G pluggable LR transceiver. An alternative to CFP transceivers, ColorChip’s DragonFly 40G is the smallest of its kind for ranges of up to 10km.

The DragonFly 40G QSFP is a 4x10G hot pluggable optical transceiver. ColorChip’s unique SystemOnGlass™ (SOGTM) technology enables the integration of 4 transmitters, 4 receivers and an optical MUX/DeMUX into a small form factor package that delivers a 40 Gbps data link in a compact QSFP footprint. The optical connectivity is based on two SMF LC connectors, one for Tx and one for Rx. The Tx and Rx each consist of 4 10GB/s CWDM channels, whose wavelengths are in the 1300nm range.
