Molex Silicon Photonics Long Reach Pigtails Resolve Key Technical Challenge for Next Generation Data Center Architectures.

Molex Silcon Photonics based active optical pigtail assemblies have many advantages over traditional VCSEL based optics. Much has been written about higher reliability and a Bit Error Rate that is approximately 1000 times better than VCSEL based products (10E-18 vs. 10E-15 BER). However, the most overlooked benefit of Molex singlemode Silicon Photonics Active Pigtails (or AOCs) is the ability to go up to 2km at 25 Gbps, at a fraction of the cost and power of long rage (LR) optics.
