VI Systems offers 12x1 VCSEL arrays with up to 28 Gbps per channel

APRILl 29, 2010 -- VI Systems GmbH has introduced the V25-850C12 VCSEL array with 12 channels for data rates of up to 28 Gbps per channel, and the D30-850C12 PIN photodetector chip arrays.

APRILl 29, 2010 -- VI Systems GmbH has introduced the V25-850C12 VCSEL array with 12 channels for data rates of up to 28 Gbps per channel, and the D30-850C12 PIN photodetector chip arrays. The operating wavelength of the VCSEL is 850 nm. The photodetector is designed for a wavelength range from 700 – 890 nm.

The chip arrays are available in 4x1, 10x1, and 12x1 channel configuration with an industry standard pitch size of 125-um for fiber coupling into ribbon fiber.

The chip arrays are designed for wire-bonding as well as for flip-chip bonding. The VCSEL arrays can be contacted directly from the top and feature an ultra-high-speed pad layout, VI Systems says.

Target applications are short reach and very short reach optical receivers and transceiver modules used in optical communication networks as well in chip-to-chip optical interconnects in the computer industry. Future serial standards at data rates at 28 Gbps are currently in development within Common Electrical Standard (CEI-25/28 Gbps) , Fiber Channel 32 Gbps, and Ethernet IEEE 40/100 Gbps as well as in a number of custom specific applications.
