In recent years, with the development of optical fiber as a long-distance standard information carrier, the field of silicon photonics has received more and more attention. The optical interconnection between the server and the client significantly increases the speed of the data, but the data center must make similar improvements to keep up with customer demand.
Silicon photonics is a possible solution to meet this fast data center connectivity need. These optical links can be anywhere from tens of kilometers to a few centimeters long with different information protocols and physical constraints on each side of the scale. In the long run, the use of fiber for high bandwidth transmission will result in high cost of using single mode fiber. These fibers are about 8 nanometers thick and require expensive lasers for transmission, as well as precise “photino” circuitry for signal processing.
The network structure and scale of the data center are rapidly changing, and there are many more fibers deployed today than ever before. In modern data centers, transmission rates of 10 Gb/s and higher have become commonplace, easily surpassing the transmission capabilities of copper-on-wire interconnects. Today’s data center markets require extensive use of optical module products to connect servers, switches, and storage devices.
To meet the growing demand for consumer and enterprise cloud services, the rapid expansion of data center infrastructure requires suppliers to rapidly expand capacity to meet unexpected order demands without compromising product quality and reliability.
