ANAHEIM, Calif., March 19 — NeoPhotonics Corporation, a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuits, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, announces the introduction of two new 100G CFP2 transceiver modules. The new 100G CFP2 modules include both the popular 10x10 MSA transceiver based on the “10x10” PIC architecture developed by NeoPhotonics and the “4x25” 100GBASE-LR4 transceiver. The CFP2 form factor is a hot pluggable module that is designed to offer lower power and smaller size compared to current generation CFP transceivers and to enable doubling of the face plate input/output port density. The CFP2 is also an attractive form factor for use in fast growing datacenter and metro Ethernet applications.
The new NeoPhotonics 10x10 CFP2 transceiver is based on ten synchronous electrical lanes and is capable of operating at both 100GE and OTU4 date rates. It features the NeoPhotonics PIC-based 10-channel laser array powered by a 10-channel driver array. The array architecture helps to streamline manufacturing processes. The 10x10 CFP2 is also backward compatible with the 10x10 CFP platform currently being commercially deployed. The company also intends for the CFP2 electrical interface to support both 4x25 LR4 and 10x10 LR10 on the same line card.
The CFP2 LR4 transceiver is based on four synchronous electrical lanes of 28Gbps signals and is designed to comply with the IEEE 100GBASE-LR4 and OTU4 specifications. The 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter is based on high performance EML lasers designed to meet stringent OTU-4 optical performance requirements.
“We are excited to announce the development of our PIC based 10x10 and LR4 CFP2 optical transceiver line, which we believe will provide our customers with the flexibility to meet many different network demands,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “The CFP2 platform is enabled by the company’s ability to integrate lasers in arrays utilizing proprietary PIC technology which we believe will continue to enable smaller transceiver form factors and lower power consumption for datacenter and metro Ethernet applications.”
NeoPhotonics is demonstrating the interoperability of its 100G CFP2 transceiver with Inphi Tri-Rate PHY/SerDes Gearbox in the Inphi booth, No. 3247, at OFC/NFOEC 2013.
Also at the OFC Exhibition, NeoPhotonics is showcasing its 100G Client Side transceivers alongside its existing product portfolio, including intradyne coherent receivers and narrow linewidth tunable lasers for 100G coherent communications and an extensive line of OLT transceivers for FTTH PON networks (March 19-21, Anaheim Convention Center, Booth 1601).
NeoPhotonics is a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based optoelectronic modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high-speed communications networks. The company’s products enable cost-effective, high-speed data transmission and efficient allocation of bandwidth over communications networks.
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
