GigOptix Inc. has debuted its ultralow power 10Gbit/s SFP+ transceiver that aims to reduce power consumption of data center interconnects. According to the company, the module dissipates less than 275mW running a full 10Gbit/s link over 100m.

The SFP+ transceiver was designed using GigOptix's ultralow power HXT/R4101 VCSEL driver and transimpedance amplifier chipset. The GigOptix solution's system level architecture enables power savings of greater than 60 percent for power hungry data center interconnects, the company said. The device that is now shipping in production volume was created in partnership with Energeia Innovations and PCL Technologies. The SFP+ transceiver program was executed through the GigOptix's Virtual-Vertical alliance approach that the company claims to offer the best cost-performance advanced solution to customers.

"We implemented this highly innovative product to address data center customer demand not only for high performance but also for low power consumption applications," noted Andrea Betti-Berutto, CTO at GigOptix.
