Demonstrating how critical interoperability work gets done, 12 OIF member companies including Yamaichi Electronics will participate in the Physical and Link Layer live demo in OIF’s (Optical Internetworking Forum) booth during ECOC 2019. The demo will feature Yamaichi´s electrical interface solutions that are critical to the global network, including CEI-112G-VSR-PAM4.
Yamaichi Electronics provides OSFP, QSFP and QSFP-DD connectors which excel in their electrical performance. The QSFP-DD connector is designed for 200G and 400G technologies and to support 28 Gbps per channel NRZ, and 56 Gbps per channel PAM4 modulation. The signal integrity takes also into consideration 112 Gbps per channel PAM4 modulation.
OIF together with Yamaichi Electronics is taking a lead role in moving the industry to the next generation with its development of electrical interface specifications for 112 Gbps per differential pair. Multiple live demonstrations featuring interoperability clearly prove the key role OIF provides. The CEI-112G-VSR-PAM4 live demonstration in the OIF booth will feature multi-party silicon supplier interoperability over mated compliance board channels, a full host to module channel and direct attach copper cable channels, all demonstrating the technical viability of 112 Gbps operation, along with multiple industry form factors including OSFP and QSFP-DD provided by Yamaichi Electronics.
