IPtronics Samples Industry's First 25G Multi-Channel Optical Interconnect Chipset Enabling Exascale Computing

VCSEL Driver and TIA Provide Significant Reductions in Cost and Power Consumption to Enable Super Compact Embedded Optical Modules

ROSKILDE, DENMARK -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- IPtronics A/S, a leader in the design of optical interconnect components for digital communications, today announced that it is sampling the industry's first multi-channel 25G VCSEL chipset to tier-one server manufacturers in the super computing market. Consisting of a VCSEL driver and TIA (transimpedance amplifier), the new IPtronics chipset eliminates the bandwidth bottleneck at the interconnect to enable high-speed processors to finally realize their true processing power. This new VCSEL-based solution, which delivers drastic reductions in cost and power consumption, leverages IPtronics continued innovation in optical interconnect technology to deliver the next generation of supercomputing.

Today's super computer providers have been unable to meet the ever-increasing requirements for higher bandwidth, density and lower power. While the processor speeds have steadily increased, the optical interconnect technology has failed to maintain the same level of innovation -- which in turn has held back the real power potential of the processor. IPtronics has solved that issue by delivering a 25G-multi-channel chipset for VCSEL-based applications that can harness the speed of even the highest-performing processors -- and, at the same time, deliver significantly lower cost, higher density, increased manufacturing reliability and scalability needed for exascale computing and beyond. IPtronics has been able to meet these core requirements by leveraging its continued innovation and optical interconnect expertise and by choosing to design VCSEL-based products that provide significant advantages in power, density and cost.

"Once again, IPtronics has delivered the innovation in the optical interconnect market that will enable the next wave of supercomputing and drive the continued growth in our industry," said Niels Finseth, CEO of IPtronics. "We believe the VCSEL approach will be the technology of choice for short-reach parallel optical interconnects at 25G and we are well positioned by being first to market and providing initial samples to tier-one server OEM customers."

About the VCSEL Driver and TIA
The new IPtronics VCSEL driver and TIA represent the ideal solution for supercomputing applications such as cloud computing, servers and routers. The products are part of a family of integrated circuits (ICs) that deliver increasingly advanced features to address the evolving dynamics on the forefront of optical interconnect development. Leveraging its vast expertise in optical interconnect technology, this family of ICs were designed with a novel architecture and feature set that is poised to bring parallel optical interconnects to the next level and deliver unprecedented scalability and flexibility to IPtronics customers. As a result, each IC addresses system challenges in an innovative fashion and provides drastic space, power and cost advantages compared to architectures at 10G and less.

Some of the key features of the new IPtronics products include:

  • Multi-channel devices: This allows for parallel optical implementation for designing optical interconnects with a bandwidth of 100Gbps to 350Gbps.

  • Low power: Power dissipation of 220mW (type, all inclusive) per channel (transceiver and receiver) enables 4 channel optical interconnects to achieve power numbers less than 1W. Low power translates into savings on electricity, and more significantly in cooling and allows for higher port density. The low power standby mode allows for further savings.

  • Signal integrity: Programmable de-emphasis of the receiver and input equalizer of the transceiver allows for longer board traces and flexibility in system design.

  • 25Gbps to 28Gbps operation: Addresses multiple protocols with the same chip set.

About IPtronics A/S
IPtronics is a leading industry innovator and provider of optical interconnect products for the computer communications market. The IPtronics technology enables low cost, low power, and small size optical interconnect solutions for computer manufactures to adopt next generation high-speed interfaces and backplanes to overcome the physical constraints that would otherwise be imposed by using copper-based connections. www.iptronics.com
