JANUARY 21, 2009 -- Avago Technologies (search for Avago Technologies) has unveiled a 10-Gbps parallel optics transmitter and receiver pair that can reach data throughput levels of up to 120 Gbps, say company representatives.

The AFBR-810BxxZ and AFBR-820BxxZ high-density modules leverage 12 independent channels each and deliver what Avago claims is superior signal integrity with support for the new P-POD pin-out standard. These modules are capable of supporting distances up to 50 m. Moreover, the company says its new parallel optic modules require only 2.4W of power per module.

The AFBR-810BxxZ is a 12-channel transmitter, and the AFBR-820BxxZ is a 12-channel receiver. Both offer 10 Gbps per channel for an aggregate of 120G per link. These high-speed parallel optic modules are based on a 'SNAP 12-like' pluggable form factor with an upgraded pin-out configuration to deliver superior signal integrity and keyed to prevent mis-plugging with existing parallel optic modules. 

Pricing for the AFBR-810BxxZ and AFBR-820BxxZ high-density parallel optics modules begin below $1,000 per pair in volume amounts.
