Reflex Photonics to show a live -40°C demonstration of its 120G LightABLE Embedded Optics during OFC 2015

Montreal, March 19th, 2015
Reflex announced that it will demonstrate error free transmission of  120Gbps with  its LightABLE Embedded Optical Modules when subjected to rapid temperature changes (from +33°C to -40°C in 30 seconds) at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference in Los Angeles, California from March 24 – 26th 2015.
Conference attendees are invited to see this demonstration at our booth 419 where “dry ice” (-78°C) is dropped on the LightABLE while it is transmitting and receiving 120Gbps with no errors.
Reflex embedded optical modules achieve better than e-12 bit error rate from -40°C to +85°C while transmitting 120Gbps in the size of a penny. The LightABLE has gained much interest from the Aerospace & Defense sector where air, land and sea vehicles experience rapid temperature changes.  Reflex has supplied thousands of its LightABLE modules to some of the largest defense contractors to scale signal processing for high performance embedded computing platforms. Reflex Industrial grade LightABLE Embedded Optics are used in High Performance Embedded Computers complying with the new VITA 66 standard.
Gerald Persaud, VP Product Management at Reflex Photonics said: “The high demand for processing in cloud computing and embedded computing is pushing interconnect densities and speeds to unprecedented levels that cannot be met with traditional electrical and optical modules.  Embedded optical modules is the only solution that scales to orders of magnitude greater interconnect densities while enabling efficient cooling in the smallest footprint”
