Compact parallel optical transmission module (optical engine)

Optical interconnects means optical data transmission between cabinets or between boards such as in a data center. Currently, application of active optical cable (AOC) as optical inter connectors between cabinets is rapidly progressed. Furukawa Electric has developed and is manufacturing the compact parallel optical engine which is mounted in the AOC and realizes transmission capacity of 12.5 Gbps x 12ch.

In future optical inter connection between boards or in a board, the directly mountable optical engine on the board will be required. Furukawa Electric has been developing the optical engine capable of high-speed operation at 25Gbps over, by using a low electric power consumption 1060 nm band VCSEL array.
