I asked Imec about the 28Gb/s rating and got this response referring to 400 Gb/s: "Imec's announcement is about the co-integration of modulators and photodetectors with improved performance, enabling 28 Gb/s bit rates per (wavelength) channel. In addition, we also reported compact and thermally tunable WDM filters with high power efficiency. These building blocks can be combined to realize compact, WDM-enabled Si Photonics transceivers with aggregate bandwidths of 400 Gb/s and more."

28Gb/s for WDM link seems awfully low...you can get that on one silicon channel electrically!

Pushing the boundaries in the interocnnect technologies will become more and more rewarding in the future as the companies look forward to reduce their datacentre expenses every day.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
