Basel, Switzerland –
MultiLane Inc. has joined Credo Technology Group Holding Ltd. at the European Conference for Optical Communications (ECOC) 2022 to validate their newly-announced line of Dove 800G Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chips. The setup, showcased at Credo’s booth #175 in the exhibition hall, sees the Dove chips seamlessly interoperating with the ML4079E BERT. This test platform is a flagship of the MultiLane 800G SERDES Characterization solution, supporting real hardware FEC analysis capable of replicating the real-life data-communications environments in which the Dove Optical DSP is projected to thrive.
A 112Gbps/lane electrical signal is launched by the ML4079E through a passive loss channel and into the receive path of the Dove Evaluation Kit. The resulting output is a very strong Bit Error Rate performance threshold, operating with ample margin against the Pre-FEC limits defined by industry standards.
“Credo’s Dove 800 Digital Signal Processor (DSP) has very linear host and line side receivers with low sensitivity, and our hyperscale data center customers need high-quality test equipment that delivers results free of external noise and nonlinearities,” said Scott Feller, Vice President for Marketing at Credo. “We are pleased to collaborate with MultiLane to demonstrate how lab and manufacturing testing can be simplified to accelerate 800G market adoption.”
With the optoelectronic industry’s focus on a new generation of pluggable speeds to address cloud service providers’ ever-growing bandwidth requirements, collaborations like the one between MultiLane and Credo facilitate a rapid adoption and development of new leading-edge technologies.
“We are excited to enable Credo to demonstrate the capabilities of their new silicon solution through our 800G development tools,” said Rachad Samaha, General Manager of MultiLane’s Data Center Test Solutions Business Unit. “Working with key industry enablers like Credo is always an excellent opportunity for both parties. We give them the confidence that their designs meet the industry’s requirements – shortening their time to market – and at the same time, we gain crucial insights that preserve our nimble presence in a rapidly evolving ecosystem.”
