InterBOARD®

Reflex Photonics offers two families of parallel optical modules:

   

Designed to support the IEEE 100GBASE-SR10 specification; the newly developed CFP transceiver module provides increased port density and total system cost savings. The Reflex CFP module has a single MPO port which connects to an industry standard 2x12 multi-mode fiber cable. The module has been designed to meet the harshest external operating conditions including temperature, humidity and EMI interference using Reflex Photonics’ next generation, LightABLE™ packaging technology. The modules offer very high functionality and feature integration, accessible via an MDIO interface.

Multimode Fibers

Reflex Photonics’ Light On Board® technology provides optically enabled semiconductor-packaging solutions for ultra short reach (USR) and short reach (SR) interconnections to and between integrated circuits (ICs) on a single printed circuit board (PCB), between adjacent PCB's and adjacent equipment chassis.

Light On Board® is an extreme high density, high-speed interconnect solution that offers superior performance without disrupting current manufacturing methodologies that use standard IC packaging and standard PCBs, automated equipment and processes. Light On Board® technology continues to respect all aspects of IC packaging and board assembly such as package size, footprint, solder-re-flow and chip interconnections since it is extremely important not to disrupt the processes developed by IC and PCB manufacturers. All existing electrical high-speed connections to the ASIC are maintained in addition to the optical connections added with Light on Board® and all optically enabled chip packages are connected via industry standard multi-fiber ribbon cables and patent pending Light on Board® mating clips.

Light on Board® provides a platform for optical connectivity by introducing pre-aligned optical-to-electrical (or electrical-to-optical) channel connector modules next to IC packages. Integrated within the channel connector modules are Reflex’s pre-aligned LightABLE™ Optical Engines: compact, encapsulated, thin modules that can be pick-and-placed into the IC package along side the chip. The distance between the ASIC and the LightABLE™ Optical Engine is significantly less than one inch, in order to immediately convert the ultra-high speed electrical signals into optical signals.
