Company is first to demonstrate new 100G IEEE 802.3bj RS-FEC IP Solution with Finisar and TE Connectivity Optics at OFC 2015
SAN JOSE, Calif., March 18, 2015 -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced availability of its 100G IEEE 802.3bj Reed-Solomon FEC (RS-FEC) IP for data center, service provider, and enterprise applications. The 100G RS-FEC IP enables new emerging optical solutions such as SR4, CWDM4, PSM4 or ER4f. Using the Xilinx 100G IEEE 802.3bj RS-FEC LogiCORE™ IP, customers can accelerate designs and be first to market while meeting the increased demands of mobile and cloud traffic. This solution also delivers on the low latency needed for time sensitive applications such as high performance computing. The 100G RS-FEC LogiCORE™ IP solution seamlessly connects to Xilinx's integrated or soft 100G Ethernet MAC IP running on Virtex® UltraScale™.
Xilinx is the first to demonstrate a complete 100G RS-FEC IP solution with Finisar and TE Connectivity (TE) optics showcased in multiple demonstrations at OFC 2015, March 24 – 26 2015, Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA. These demonstrations will feature the Virtex UltraScale VU095 FPGA communicating to a Finisar CFP4 ER4f optical module (Ethernet Alliance booth #2531) and a TE QSFP28 SR4 optical module (TE booth #1417).
The 100G IEEE 802.3bj RS-FEC LogiCORE IP solution is available for early access customers. For more information, please contact your local sales representative or visit http://www.xilinx.com/esp/wired/wired_ip_resources.htm#connectivity
