120Gbps Surface Mount and Pluggable 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 pre-aligned parallel electrical-to-optical (or optical-to-electrical) transmitter (or receiver). The optical engines can be mounted directly upon a high-speed printed circuit board via surface mount technology.

Short electrical traces from the Host ASIC connect high-speed electrical data signals to the Reflex LightABLE™ optical engine.

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