NEDO and PETRA to Showcase the Latest Chip-scale Optical Transceiver Technology at a U.S. Exposition

-Data Transmission Rates of 25 Gbps between High-Performance LSI Chips to Be Demonstrated-
March  22,2016
New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)
Photonics Electronics Technology Research Association

NEDO and the Photonics Electronics Technology Research Association (PETRA) will conduct a live demonstration of their newest optical transceiver technology at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition 2016, the world’s largest optical communications exhibition, from March 22nd to March 24th in Anaheim, California. The demonstration will showcase the world’s smallest chip-scale optical transceiver (optical I/O core), which uses silicon photonics technology to achieve data transmission at a rate of 25 Gbps (Gigabits per second) between high-performance LSI chips at a size of only 5mm2.

Optical transceiver components equipped with the optical I/O core will also be on display with the goal of expanding the use of the technology in a wide range of applications and exploring business opportunities to collaborate with a variety of system vendors.
