Infinera Leverages Tower Semiconductor SiGe Technology in its Industry-leading 800Gbs Optical Engine
NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Providing the highest performance Data Center and 5G Infrastructure Optical ICs
“Infinera always leverages best-in-class technologies to achieve industry-leading system performance. This includes Infinera’s industry-leading indium phosphide (InPh) photonic integrated circuits and Tower’s advanced silicon-germanium (SiGe) for high bandwidth driver and receiver circuitry,” said Dr.
Infinera’s ICE6 optical engine is the latest innovation from Infinera’s Optical Innovation Center and designed in a compact digital coherent optical (DCO) package that can be easily integrated into a variety of networking platforms. Supporting two 800G wavelengths and boasting ground-breaking optical feature, the 1.6Tbs optical engine demonstrated significantly superior performance than competing solutions providing incremental value to network operators.
Tower Semiconductor’s advanced Terabit SiGe BiCMOS platform (SBC18) is optimized for high-speed networking applications providing transistors with speeds exceeding 300GHz and is a workhorse for industry leaders designing high-performance telecom and datacom optical networks with speeds of 100Gbps, 400Gbps and now 800Gbps. This SiGe platform is also tailored to deliver the highest performance for high-frequency wireless communications such as automotive radar, satellite communications and 5G for both sub-6GHz and mm-wave bands.
“We are very proud to partner with Infinera in the development of their industry-leading 800G optical engine. Our collaboration with Infinera’s team has allowed both companies to achieve an important milestone in the optical transmission market segment,” said Dr.
