Luxtera Ships One Millionth Transceiver Product
CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 26, 2016 — Semiconductor provider Luxtera Inc. has announced the shipment of its one millionth silicon photonic parallel single-mode fiber four-lane transceiver product.
The patented technology blends the long reach capabilities of single-mode fibers with low-cost transceivers. This combination is critical for the cost-effective scaling of cloud computing data centers.
“This is a huge milestone for the optics industry and an exciting achievement for Luxtera,” said Greg Young, president and CEO of Luxtera. “With over 1 million units deployed, sweeping design wins and 100-Gbps PSM4 shipping in 100K+ volumes, it is clear that our products are at the center of the industry’s $5 billion optical super cycle. Passing this milestone signals that our customers have embraced our vision, including volume orders for solutions that offer long reach and low cost with best-in-class performance.”
Luxtera was a founding member and drafter of the 100G-PSM4 Multi Supplier Agreement (MSA) in 2014, the first standard to enable silicon photonics interoperability with legacy DML Optical modules for PSM4 fiber without compromising the cost benefits of silicon photonics. This widely accepted MSA has the support of dozens of companies with PSM4 product offerings and is being deployed at scale by the major cloud computing operators.
