Avago Technologies First to Market With 8 Gb/sec SFP+ LR Transceiver for Fibre Channel

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 7, 2008— Avago Technologies today announced availability of the industrys first 8 Gb/sec SFP+ LR (Long Reach) optical transceivers for Fibre Channel applications. The company is a leading supplier of interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications. Avagos AFCT-57D5ATPZ optical transceiver operates over single-mode optical fiber at signaling rates up to 8.5 GBd for distances up to 10 km. The Fibre Channel SFP+ transceiver couples excellent transmitter optics with industry-best electromagnetic interference (EMI) performance. The new transceiver also enables the production of high port density, standards-based 8 Gb/sec storage area network (SAN) applications, such as inter-switch links, storage replication and other long-reach networks.

Based on Avagos highly reliable 1310 nm DFB laser, the AFCT-57D5ATPZ is compliant with industry 8.5/4.25/2.125 GBd Fibre Channel specifications. Avagos new transceiver supports RoHS requirements and provides real time monitoring of transmitted optical power, receive optical power, laser bias current, temperature and supply voltage information. The AFCT-57D5ATPZs digital diagnostic interface also adds the ability to disable the transmitter, monitor for transmitter faults and monitor for receiver loss of signal.

The AFCT-57D5ATPZ is complementary to Avagos AFBR-57D5APZ multimode optical transceiver with a 150 m reach that was released in early 2008. Avago continues to demonstrate its commitment to the growing Fibre Channel market with the introduction of our high-performance long reach transceivers, said Randy Clark, product marketing manager for Avago Technologies fiber optic products division. Customers worldwide can turn to us for fiber optic technologies that best meet their product needs as we remain very involved with the industry standard organizations that define the direction of the storage networking industry.
