CFP2-ACO Product Family

Our CFP2-ACO product family contains a single module that has an analog electrical interface and supports up to 200 Gbps transmission speeds. Its form factor was designed in accordance with the Implementation Agreement defined by the Optical Internetworking Forum, an industry-standard, pluggable CFP2 form factor. Based on our latest silicon PIC, Orion, the CFP2-ACO is our fourth product family to leverage our coherent silicon PIC technology.
CFP2-ACO: Released in sample form in the first quarter of 2016, this module has a linear optical transmitter and receiver supporting multiple modulation formats. With an analog electrical interface to a coherent DSP on the host board, our CFP2-ACO will offer an optics-only solution for customers who currently rely on in-house DSP capabilities. Based on our Orion silicon PIC, the CFP2-ACO leverages our coherent silicon PIC technology. We believe that this module will primarily be used in inter-data center and metro markets.
