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.

TE Connectivity and Credo pave the way for 112G single lane connectivity

Live demonstration for the first time at DesignCon 2018

HARRISBURG, Pa. – January 31, 2018 –  TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors,  and Credo, a leading provider of high performance, mixed-signal semiconductor solutions for the data center, enterprise networking and high performance computing markets, today announced they have teamed up to demonstrate the future of networking technologies. The companies will hold  demonstrations of 112Gbps over a chip to module (IO) channel and over a backplane channel at DesignCon 2018.  The demonstrations will be unveiled in booth #817 at DesignCon, which takes place in the Santa Clara, CA convention center from January 31 through February 1..  As industry groups, such as OIF and IEEE, meet to discuss feasibility of these types of links at these next generation data rates, TE and Credo will be demonstrating performance on actual hardware.

The IO channel demonstration uses TE’s OSFP IO connector with Credo’s 16nm, lower power, high performance 112G PAM4 SerDes technology to exhibit operation over a 10-inch printed circuit board (PCB) channel.  The "O" is for "octal" — it is being designed to use eight electrical lanes to deliver 400GbE — and "SFP" is for "small form factor pluggable. The channel is driven by Credo’s 112G PAM4 SerDes, which is operating over a total ball-to-ball channel loss of >15 decibel (dB).  The demo shows bit error rate (BER) performance of better than 1e-7.  The OSFP IO connector is a state-of-the-art 8 channel IO connector currently adopted for 400Gbps applications.  The demonstration establishes TE’s OSFP connector performance as an 800Gbps capable IO solution.

The backplane demonstration uses TE’s latest STRADA Whisper orthogonal backplane connector  operating with a total channel loss of 20 dB at 28 GHz in a PCB-based direct plug orthogonal (DPO) architecture.   Driven by Credo’s 112G PAM4 SerDes, the demo shows BER performance levels that fully enable the adoption of STRADA Whisper solutions for the next wave of networking equipment.

“Credo’s proven low power silicon expertise being advanced to 112G SerDes is a key technology milestone.  Credo is enabling the industry to progress quickly to 112Gbps serial electrical signaling, which paves the way for accelerating the deployment of 112G single lane, end-to-end network connectivity. Enabling faster data, in smaller spaces at a potentially lower cost”, according to TE’s Nathan Tracy, technologist, member of system architecture team and industry standards manager.

“TE’s OSFP IO connector demonstrates the extremely low noise performance that will be required in 112Gbps IO applications.  In addition, the performance of TE’s latest STRADA Whisper backplane connector enables the balance of the 112Gbps signaling interconnect ecosystem. TE’s world-class interconnect performance has demonstrated that it is 112Gbps ready,” said Jeff Twombly, vice president of business development at Credo.

Source Photonics and Credo Semiconductor Demonstrate Single Lambda 100G Connectivity over 20km of Fiber with Compact TOSA and ROSA Assemblies

ECOC, Gothenburg, Sweden – September 18, 2017 – Source Photonics and Credo Semiconductor are pleased to announce a single lambda 100Gbits/sec connectivity demonstration over 20km of fiber using a compact TOSA and ROSA capable of 53Gbaud PAM4 operation.

Increasing demand for more bandwidth in Cloud Data Centers is creating the need for more efficient and higher throughput optical transceivers beyond the currently deployed 100G 4x25G WDM technology. These next generation transceivers will need to support higher order modulation techniques such as PAM4 and higher data rate operation at 53Gbaud. Implementations that can be supported with this technology include 400G-DR4/FR4 in addition to 100G-DR/FR/LR.

The demonstration consists of Source Photonics internally packaged TOSA and ROSA sub-assemblies in an optical loopback configuration through 20km of single-mode fiber using a single 100G channel of Credo’s low power PAM4 IC technology.  The bit-error-rate (BER) after 20Km of fiber remained better than the KP4 FEC requirement and was around 5x10-5 . The TOSA is based on Source Photonics’ EML laser technology which provides the necessary bandwidth to achieve a TDECQ value below 2.5dB. The room temperature link budget of 10dB provides considerable margin for the most significant link specifications under development in the industry, allowing production margin for performance variations. These results show that the building blocks necessary to realize 53Gbaud single lambda operation are available and ready to serve the needs of next generation data center deployments.

What this demonstration achieves with one laser and one receiver currently requires four lasers and four receivers – facilitating not only lower cost future 100G but also accelerating the development of 400G products.

“We are continuing to invest in next generation technology, such as Single Lambda 100G, as part of our commitment to providing leading edge solutions for data centers.” said Doug Wright, CEO of Source Photonics.

“The HyperScale Cloud Providers have spoken and 100G per lambda solutions are a key connectivity priority.” said Rajan Pai, vice president of system applications at Credo. “Our unique SerDes architecture allows us to deliver single-lane 100G performance at the lowest power which will enable the volume deployments of 100G and 400G optical modules.”

Source Photonics will be hosting a private demonstration at their booth number 162 at ECOC 2017 to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden from September 18-20, 2017. To schedule an appointment to view the demo, please contact Jasmin Basa at jasmin.basa@sourcephotonics.com.
