SMOD transmitters and receivers are now available at data rates of 4 Gbps to 10 Gbps in packages of only 3x2 mm -- or roughly the size of a match head.
In data centers, server farms, supercomputers and large enterprise systems, SMOD products provide high port density at lower costs to provision bandwidth needs with greater economy.
SMOD transmitter and receiver modules are designed for flexibility, scalability and ease of use in networking systems and equipment, accommodating serial or parallel array communications and multiple protocols.
SMOD receivers combine an 850 nm photodiode and TIA electronics in a surface mount package, providing high density and high data throughput.
SMOD products are produced using a wafer-level approach with state-of-the-art surface mount technology (SMT) and full flip chip assembly processes to achieve the smallest form factor on the market: LCC6 package at 3x2 mm.
