Avago ships 10-Gbits/s Ethernet SFP+ transceivers


San Jose, Calif.—Avago Technologies says it is first to market with next-generation 10-Gbits/s Ethernet SFP+ short-reach optical transceivers.

Avago's 850 nm VCSEL-based 10 Gbits/s AFBR-700SDZ SFP+ (small form-factor pluggable) transceiver with digital monitoring interface (DMI) brings new levels of speed and high-port density to next-generation networking equipment.

At the core of Avago's 10 Gbits/s SFP+ transceiver is its own 850 nm VCSELs, which leverage technology from its 4G VCSEL design that has undergone over 2 billion device hour testing with no failures. The AFBR-700SDZ also uses multimode fiber, which enables the SFP+ transceiver to extend coverage up to 300 meters.

Avago's optical transceiver supports the SFF-8431 specification for enhanced 10 Gbits/s SFP+ as well as the SFF-8472 specification for DMI in optical transceivers. The ROHS 6 compliant, lead-free AFBR-700SDZ delivers real-time temperature, supply voltage, laser bias current, laser average output power and received input power information through a two-wire interface. The digital diagnostic interface also adds the ability to disable the transmitter, monitor for transmitter faults and monitor for receiver loss of signal.
