EMCORE to Demonstrate Infiniband™ 56Gb/s FDR, 120 Gb/s Ethernet CXP Active Optical Cables and 14Gb/s Optical Sub-Assemblies at OFC 2011

ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) -  EMCORE Corporation (NASDAQ: EMKR) today announced that it will demonstrate two new interconnect products at OFC including a 56Gb/s FDR and a 120 Gb/s CXP active optical cable for high performance computing (HPC), high-end Ethernet router and switch applications. EMCORE will also demonstrate 14Gb/s transmit and receive optical sub-assemblies (TOSA/ROSA) for next generation Fibre Channel storage area networks. Live demonstrations will take place at OFC/NFOEC in Los Angeles, March 8-10, 2011, Booth #2125.

High performance computers, telecommunication routers, storage networks, grid and cloud computing systems require higher speed interconnects to support the increasing performance requirements. These FDR and CXP active optical cable products provide the highest aggregated level of data throughput in a compact, lightweight form-factor capable of supporting the bandwidth needs of these next generation systems. 

The 14Gb/s TOSA/ROSA products enable our customers to support the latest 16X Fibre Channel data-rate as market demand transfers from 4-8 Gb/s transceivers to 14 Gb/s optical transceivers.

"EMCORE is the industry leader in active optical cable sales," commented Jaime Reloj, EMCORE's Vice President of Business Development. "Leveraging our next generation VCSEL and PIN we will continue to grow the market and demonstrate the same quality, reliability, on-time delivery and competitive pricing our customers have come to expect."

EMCORE's complete line of Datacom products will be on display including high-bandwidth, parallel optical interconnect products including the DDR and QDR cables for 4x 20Gb/s and 40Gb/s Infiniband and PCIe applications as well as optically pluggable SNAP12 solutions for up to 75Gb/s telecommunications routers, backplane and proprietary high-speed interconnect applications.
