Centera Will Demo Full Landscape of 400G Optical Interconnects in OFC 2020

Centera Photonics Inc., a silicon photonics optical solution provider for data center interconnects, will LIVE-Demo the interoperability of its 400G optical interconnects in OFC 2020 at San Diego Convention Center. The 400G products, including 400G SR8/AOC, 400G DR4, 100G DR1 and 200G FR4, will be fully loaded on a 32-port, 12.8T QDD Datacenter Switch. The data packet transmission could be real-time monitored via a GUI Interface on the side. Centera will also jointly demo its 400G COBO SR8 with Delta Networks Inc. in the COBO (Consortium for On-Board Optics) Booth 5818. The COBO device will be arranged in a DNI’s 12.8T switch. DNI’s Open Networking Platform COBO PoC, equipped with Centera’s COBO, just received 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews Honoree Award.


All transceiver/AOCs are built on the highly integrated O/E platform from Centera’s sophisticated silicon MEMS technology to achieve reliable packet communication in the next-generation datacenters.


In the meantime, Centera will present a Co-Package Optics (CPO) architectural design based on hybrid integration via advanced CMOS process which targets “less driver- interface” topology. This scheme will simplify the circuit design and essentially diminish the power consumption inside the switch box.


Moreover, Centera will introduce two initiatives: Design for Manufacture and Design for Quality regarding the highly scalable volume production of the silicon based process technology. Centera will exhibit its self-designed automatic Fiber Assembly Tools to meet the goal of Design for Manufacture and a toolset of In-Line Monitoring system, smart Burn-in equipment and All-in-One Tester to reach the goal of Design for Quality.
