OIF PLL Demonstration @ Supercomm 2003

SUPERCOMM 2003 – June 3-5, 2003 – Atlanta, Georgia

The SUPERDemo featured live demonstrations offering a visual representation of dynamic N-way interoperability of SPI-4.2, SFI-4 and tunable lasers among OIF member companies.
The OIF also introduced its new project, CEI, with demonstrations of electrical interfaces with signaling rates of 6+ and 11+ GBaud for chip to chip, chip to optical module and electrical backplane applications.

The following companies participated:

  • CEI 11+ Gig Short Reach: Agilent, AMCC, BitBlitz, Ignis Optics, Infineon, Vitesse, Xilinx
  • CEI 11+ Gig Long Reach: Tyco Electronics, Winchester Electronics
  • CEI 6+ Gig Long Reach: Gennum, Tyco Electronics, Velio
  • SPI-4.2: NEC
  • SFI-4.1: Multiplex
  • Tunable Lasers: iolon, Santur

Collateral distributed at the booth included the following white papers:
