3D Thursday: How about a closeup of the Avago MiniPOD optical interconnect on the Altera Optical FPGA?

I just posted a blog entry about the Altera Optical FPGA that pumped 100Gigabit/sec Ethernet (GbE) traffic through a 3D-package-on-package-mounted, 12-channel optical interconnect device from Avago. (See “3D Thursday: Altera adds Avago MicroPOD optical interconnects to FPGA package to handle … Continue reading

3D Thursday: Altera adds Avago MicroPOD optical interconnects to FPGA package to handle bidirectional 100Gbps Ethernet

This week at the Optical Fibre Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) in Los Angeles, Altera demonstrated a specially modified Stratix IV FPGA that handled bidirectional 100Gbps Ethernet (100GbE) traffic over a pair of IC-package-mounted Avago MicroPOD multi-lane optical transceivers. The … Continue reading
