The key differentiator is the ability to leverage the LR SerDes generally already aboard today’s high-performance ASICs to directly drive the optical interconnect engine.

Startup Nubis Communications, Inc. has emerged from stealth mode with an optical interconnect technology for high-performance ASICs that leverages the chip’s internal copper-centric SerDes to directly drive optical interconnect. The company’s first product is the XT1600 optical engine, which offers 1.6 Tbps optical transmit and 1.6 Tbps optical receive carried over 16 fiber pairs.
