The Optical Engine Family consists of a (4+4) x5Gbit/s Infiniband compliant engine and a QSFP version just released. The family will also include a (4+4) x10Gbit/s engine in March with a 12x10Gbs engine in late 2008.

The engines are manufactured using the Intexys patented "Full-Flip-Chip" concept which enables integration of electronics and optics. The platform achieves high signal integrity and low crosstalk, fine pitch and self-alignment properties leads to high manufacturability and reliability. The 10Gbit/s products incorporate a low power chip set which allows for the lowest power consumption available in the market and is a true green enabling product family.

"We have introduced a unique parallel optical engine that leaves no compromise on signal integrity and optical alignment. The full flip-chip process is a deterministic approach that changes the rules of optical packaging," says Regis Hamelin, CTO and co-founder of Intexys.

"This development of low power optical engines responds to the demand of the industry for green friendly products for future deployment into multiple applications. We are very proud to be a part of the solution to a major industry initiative," says Terry Thomas, VP of Sales and Marketing.
