Keywords:16Gb fiber channel? transceiver? inter-switch connectivity?

Avago Technologies has introduced a 16Gb fiber channel transceiver with signaling rates up to 14.025 GBd. The AFBR-57F5PZ SFP+ transceiver supports high-speed serial links over multimode optical fiber with double the data throughput of existing 8Gb fiber channel modules. The modules address 16Gb fiber channel switches, routers, host bus adapters, RAID controllers, tape drives and video switching, as well as inter-switch and inter-chassis aggregated links.

The transceiver reduces the number of ports required for inter-switch connectivity by a factor of two compared to existing 8Gb fiber channel solutions and operates at essentially the same power level. The SFP+ module's transmitter and receiver can operate at different data rates, as is often required during fiber channel speed negotiation. The module maintains compatibility with legacy 8Gb and 4Gb fiber channel devices, simplifying design migration.

AFBR-57F5PZ

The transceiver reduces the number of ports required for inter-switch connectivity by a factor of two compared to existing 8Gb fiber channel solutions.

The AFBR-57F5PZ transceiver incorporates the reliability of Avago 850nm Vertical-Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology and PIN detector technology. This combination ensures that the multirate SFP+ module is compliant with FC-PI-5 and 16G/8G/4G fiber channel specifications. The module will respond to both rate select pin and control bit inputs, which simplifies fiber channel host auto-negotiation algorithms, layout and software.

The device offers a wide temperature operation of 0C C70C and wide supply voltage of 3.3V5 percent. It is also lead-free and RoHS-compliant. Digital diagnostic features per SFF-8472. It also has LC Duplex optical connector interface conforming to ANSI TIA/EIA604-10 (FOCIS 10A) and offers enhanced EMI performance for high port density applications.

Samples and production quantities of the AFBR-57F5PZ 16Gb fiber channel transceiver are available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
