Abstract: In this technical paper, Yi Sun and her colleagues demonstrate that the linear interface PAM4 works with LOMMF (OM3 & OM4) and MM-MCF at 53Gbps and 106Gbps equivalent in distance suitable for short reach optical interconnect applications. Multimode Fiber (MMF) – Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) has been the dominant short-reach optical interconnect solution for intra-datacenter Ethernet, High Performance Computing (HPC), and Fibre Channel (FC) applications. The physical mediums adopted in IEEE 802.3 Ethernet and INCIST T11 FC standards and widely deployed in the field are laser-optimized multimode fibers (LOMMF) including ISO/IEC and ANSI/TIA fiber cabling standards and IEC and TIA fiber component standards specified OM3, OM4, and OM5. Join IWCS and OFS for this Technical Paper Webinar to learn about this important multimode fiber research.
