Credo to Demonstrate 100G Mixed-Signal DSP for 100G DR1 & 400G DR4 Optical Modules at CIOE; Enabling Accelerated Adoption of End-to-End 100G Single Optical Lambda Connectivity

Shenzhen, China, Sept 4, 2018 – Credo, a global innovation leader in high performance, low power connectivity solutions for 100G, 200G, and 400G port enabled networks, today announced it will demonstrate its 100G single lane rate mixed-signal Digital Signal Processing (DSP) solutions to enable 100G per lambda optical connections at the 2018 China International Opto-electronic Exposition (CIOE). The conference starts today at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center, Fuhua 3rd Rd, FuTian CBD, Futian Qu, Shenzhen Shi, Guangdong Sheng, 518000, China, with exhibits taking place from September 5 through September 8.

“Mega-datacenters will benefit tremendously when the technology to enable end-to-end 100G single lane matures,” said Jeff Twombly, vice president of marketing and business development at Credo. “Our demonstrations today are definite proof points that the optical connectivity is ready to move into volume production this year and will enable the 100G single lane radix for years to come.”

“100G single lane is the next critical technology and building block for the data center and a key enabler for next generation switches,“ said Alan Weckel, founder of 650 Group.  “It will enable the move to 800G ports based on 8x100G connections, a port speed pivotal to Cloud growth for the next decade.  100G single lane will also have broad adoption beyond the Cloud and become common in enterprise and service provider networks.”

The 12.8Tbps generation of switch silicon is ramping.  The mass adoption by the system vendors has been delayed due to the lack of 100G and 400G optical ports based on 100G per lambda optics.  A critical component to enable production grade modules is the clock and data recovery device based on advance signal processing technology that can delivery to performance while not exceeding the power budget.  The Credo CMX125100KP for IEEE DR optical modules and CMX450100P for IEEE DR4 optical modules utilize Credo’s unique low power, mixed-signal DSP technology to deliver the necessary system level solution features while achieving the low power to allow production module deployments.  The low power devices are manufactured in 28nm process technology, are sampling now, and will moving into fully qualified, high volume manufacting in the forth quarter of this calendar year.

Credo Demonstrates 100G, 200G, and 400G Active Ethernet Cables at CIOE 2018 Robust, High Performance Connectivity for Next Generation Datacenter and Enterprise Networks

Shenzhen, China, Sept 4, 2018 – Credo, a global innovation leader in high performance, low power connectivity solutions for 100G, 200G, and 400G port enabled networks, today announced it will conduct multiple product demonstrations at the 2018 China International Opto-electronic Exposition (CIOE) showcasing its new product family of Active Ethernet Cables (AEC).  The Credo AEC family is engineered to provide robust, deterministic solutions for a variety of 100G, 200G, and 400G intra-rack and inter-rack connectivity requirements. The conference starts today at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center, Fuhua 3rd Rd, FuTian CBD, Futian Qu, Shenzhen Shi, Guangdong Sheng, 518000, China, with exhibits taking place from September 5 through September 8.

‘’Datacenter, enterprise and high performance computing environments require flexible and deterministic 50G, 100G, 200G, and 400G cabled connections within the rack and between adjacent racks,”said Job Lam, chief operating officer at Credo. “Our AEC family provides true plug and play connectivity for all combinations of Top-of-Rack (ToR) Switch to Server and ToR to ToR networking requirements at a significantly lower power and price than active optical solutions.”

“Server access in the Cloud is rapidly moving beyond 25G with many deployments over the next twelve months looking to deploy 12.8Tbps fabrics in both the leaf and spine with adoption of both 50G and 100G server connectivity,“ said Chris DePuy, founder of 650 Group.  “Rapid mega-scale adoption of next generation speeds will require the cloud providers to reduce to deploy 100G server access at a cost significantly less than 4X increase in bandwidth.  Cloud providers will also be looking to reduce operational costs with lower power consumption and reduced complexity.”

The Credo AEC family allows for connecting ports of the same rate such as 400G QSFP-DD to 400G QSFP-DD and 400G OSFP to 400G OSFP as well as providing the necessary breakout cabling requirements such as a 400G QSFP-DD (or OSFP) to 2xQSFP56 which maintains the end-to-end 50G PAM4 lane rates and a 400G QSFP-DD (or OSFP) to 4xQSFP28 which gear-shifts down to 25G NRZ lane rates on the server side.  

Credo will be demonstrating its AEC products on the expo floor in Booth #2122/2123.
