Sunnyvale, Calif. The Legacy-10GT line of TOSA/ROSA solutions have been developed for 62.5-micron legacy fiber applications. These 1310-nm devices can provide 10-Gbit/s serial transmission up to 300 meters of legacy multi-mode fiber. The TOSA devices in the family include the LF1030-LCF11, which consists of a Fabry Perot laser coupled to a single-mode fiber stub. The line of TOSA products also includes a device that directly couples to multimode fiber with restricted launch for controlled modal dispersion. The ROSA devices in the family include the PT 6232-LCF11, which provides a 1310-nm PIN photodetector and a TIA.
Pricing: $150 for a TOSA/ROSA pair in production volumes

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
