ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 16 -- EMCORE Corporation, a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the broadband, fiber optic, satellite and terrestrial solar power markets, today announced sampling and demo of 40 gigabit per second (Gbps) fiber-optic transceiver-based cables that will be showcased with Mellanox's switches and adapters at the International Supercomputing Conference.
EMCORE Connects Cables, formerly Intel Connects Cables and recently acquired from Intel Corporation, are specifically designed for high-performance computing (HPC) and other large data center applications. The 40 Gbps QSFP form factor cables are currently sampling and will be commercially available beginning 2009 to support the deployment of large petaflop scale HPC clusters. EMCORE is currently offering 20 Gbps cables with transmission distances of up to 30 meters. This new line of 40 Gbps products offer faster links and longer transmission, lighter in weight, and more reliable in performance than the traditional copper cable interconnects:
"EMCORE Connects Cables continue to lead the HPC optical fiber interconnect market segment with the sampling of these ultra-high bandwidth cables," said Stephen Krasulick, vice president and general manager of EMCORE Digital Products. "We have worked with Mellanox Technologies closely on the testing of these products and are extremely pleased to be able to publicly demonstrate their capabilities with the new 40 Gbps Mellanox ConnectX adapters. EMCORE foresees a rapid growth of the optical fiber interconnect market with the adoption of 40 Gbps data rates and the move to huge petascale systems."
"We are excited to see EMCORE showcase their 40 Gbps InfiniBand cables," said Thad Omura, vice president of product marketing at Mellanox. "Cables like these from EMCORE expand the reach of our ConnectX adapters and systems based on the InfiniScale IV 40Gbps InfiniBand switch silicon, and will make it easier to build large clusters that support state-of-the-art commercial and scientific HPC applications."
Since the introduction by Intel at ISC in June of 2007, EMCORE Connects Cables have been enthusiastically embraced by the HPC community throughout the world, most notably in the 120 Teraflop Tata-Computational Research Labs, Pune, India. This product was recognized as #4 on the November 2007's Top500 list. EMCORE Connects Cables are respected for their performance, high-quality of manufacture, and excellent reliability. After closing the transaction in April of 2008, EMCORE has stressed the same commitment to performance, manufacturing quality, and customer satisfaction.
A live demonstration of these cables and the Mellanox Technologies ConnectX adapters can be seen in the Intel booth at the International Supercomputing Conference, Dresden, Germany, June 17-19, 2008.
