Avago Technologies announced production availability of a 16 Gigabit Fibre Channel transceiver with industry-standard signaling rates up to 14.025 GBd.
The AFBR-57F5PZ SFP+ transceivers support high-speed serial links over multimode optical fiber with double the data throughput of existing 8 Gigabit Fibre Channel modules. The modules address 16 Gigabit Fibre Channel switches, routers, host bus adapters, RAID controllers, tape drives and video switching, as well as inter-switch and inter-chassis aggregated links.
The Avago AFBR-57F5PZ SFP+ transceiver reduces the number of ports required for inter-switch connectivity by a factor of two compared to existing 8 Gigabit Fibre Channel solutions and operates at essentially the same power level, according to Avago. The SFP+ module’s transmitter and receiver can operate at different data rates, as is often required during Fibre Channel speed negotiation. The module maintains compatibility with legacy 8 Gigabit and 4 Gigabit Fibre Channel devices, simplifying design migration.
The AFBR-57F5PZ transceiver incorporates Avago's 850-nm Vertical-Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology and PIN detector technology, ensuring compliance with FC-PI-5 and 16G/8G/4G Fibre Channel specifications.
