OIF PLL Interoperability Demo 2016

March 22-24, 2016
Anaheim, CA

OIF member companies demonstrated multi-vendor interoperability of Pluggable Coherent Optics and 56G Electrical Interfaces in live, operating environments.  The OIF’s Physical and Link Layer working group demonstrations included live 56G electrical interface interoperability over a range of channel reaches from VSR to LR and a range of modulations including NRZ and PAM4. The expanding ecosystem for CFP2-ACO pluggable coherent optics was showcased through live demos. 56G and coherent optics test equipment was also demonstrated.

The OIF PLL Interoperability Demo 2016 highlights:

  • CFP2-ACO Optical Module to ASIC analog link
  • CFP2-ACO Compliance Boards and test equipment
  • CEI-56G-VSR-NRZ and CEI-56G-VSR-PAM4 Channel
  • CEI-56G-MR-NRZ Cable and CEI-56G-MR-PAM4 Cable
  • CEI-56G-LR-PAM4 Backplane

Participating companies include Amphenol, Anritsu, ClariPhy, Credo, Fujitsu Optical Components, Inphi, Keysight Technologies, Molex, MultiLane, TE Connectivity, Tektronix and Yamaichi Electronics.
