Optical Transceiver Meets Requirements Of Emerging Mega Datacenters

ColorChip is claiming a major milestone with the introduction of its 400G QSFP-DD FR4 optical transceiver, designed to address the needs of today's mega datacenters. Leveraging the company’s proprietary SystemOnGlass (SOG) technology, the 400G FR4 transceiver is designed in collaboration with Credo, using its highly efficient CMX450100P DSP device.


The Credo mixed-signal DSP is integrated with ColorChip's SOG optical engine, employing uncooled EML's operating on the CWDM grid and an innovative glass platform characterized by low optical losses and high coupling efficiencies. The result enables a solution achieving minimal power consumption levels and a design ready-made for automated assembly delivering high production scalability and yields.
