TRUMPF and Optomind showcases 100Gbps VCSEL performance in 800Gbps transceiver at OFC


VCSEL and photodiodes as 1x1, 1x4 or 1x12 arrays

TRUMPF Photonic Components, in VCSEL and photodiode solutions for data communication, is showcasing 100Gbps VCSEL performance at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) in San Diego, CA. This demonstration with one of their customers reaffirms TRUMPF’s commitment and leadership in datacom area. With increasing demand for multichannel high-speed data transmission in AI/ML-based hyperscale cloud computing space, 800 Gbps data rate at 100Gbps per lane and beyond is essential.

“We are delighted to have achieved a performance of 800Gbps in our transceiver leveraging innovative optics technology and TRUMPF’s VCSEL” commented Yung Son, Chief Marketing Officer of Optomind. “We look forward to solidifying our partnership with TRUMPF as the strategic best-in-class VCSEL supplier for distinguished transceiver and active optical cable (AOC) to our customers,” he added.

“We are pleased to have collaborated with Optomind to demonstrate the performance of our VCSEL at PAM4 112Gbps/ch in their transceiver, which validates the use of it in a real-world application,” says Ralph Gudde, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at TRUMPF Photonic Components. “A full-featured version of our 100G VCSEL is planned for production release this summer. TRUMPF is diversified, has a strong technology background and brings solid long-term commitment as a technology partner and a key supplier into the datacom business.” he explained.

Advanced optical data communication systems benefit from the high-speed data transmission which the VCSEL-based technology offers. For interconnect distances of up to 100 meters, VCSELs are the best solution in terms of power, cost and the productivity of SR modules. TRUMPF is offering both VCSELs and photodiodes as a matching pair solution, in singlets, 1x4 arrays and 1x12 arrays for 14G and 25G for the NRZ applications. The same is offered for 56G PAM4 applications. The VCSELs are specifically designed and implemented to meet the requirements of hyperscale data centers including for AI/ML applications, high-performance computing systems, and other bandwidth-intensive applications, as they deliver high performance and reliable data transmission at high speeds.
