New Product Release: LIGHTPASS®-EOB 100G (2021/Oct/26)



Ultra-thin Active Optical Module LIGHTPASS®-EOB 100G 

I-PEX will start providing samples of the LIGHTPASS®-EOB 100G with built-in microprocessor using I-O Core's silicon photonics IC "Optical I/O Core".

The LIGHTPASS®-EOB 100G is an ultra-thin active optical module with a height of 2.3 mm, integrated with silicon photonics IC for the electrical-optical conversion of internal high-speed signals in data center equipment. The LIGHTPASS®-EOB 100G achieves high-speed transmission of 100 Gbps (25 Gbps x 4 ch) up to 300 meters over multimode fiber cable.

For sample supply, an evaluation board is also available along with the active optical module.

I-PEX has added the LIGHTPASS®-EOB 100G to its product lineup, along with the LIGHTPASS®-EOM 100G, which is currently supplying samples to the optical interconnection market to meet the increasing data traffic. ( LIGHTPASS® SERIES article  )
