120Gbps Embedded LightABLE™ optical engine

The Reflex Photonics LightABLE™ Optical Engine is an integrated solution for converting between high-speed electrical and optical I/O.

The LightABLE™ Surface Mount Optical Engine is a low-profile parallel transmitter or receiver. The optical engines can be mounted directly upon a high-speed printed circuit board via surface mount technology or via a MEG-array┬« connector.

Hundreds of gigabits or even multiple terabits of optical connectivity can be directly delivered to within millimeters of an ASIC; bypassing the need for long copper traces and bulky pluggable optical modules.
