Anritsu Corporation and CIG Photonics are jointly demonstrating an 800G optical transceiver*1 PAM4 test solution in the Anritsu booth (#7B33) at CIOE 2022 to be held from December 7 to 9, 2022 in the World Exhibition and Convention Center, Shenzhen, China.

The test setup will input an 8-lane*2 optical signal from a CIG QSFP-DD800 2xFR4 800G optical transceiver to Anritsu’s MP2110A Sampling Oscilloscope to demonstrate measurement of key test parameters, including TDECQ*3.

With the explosive increase in network traffic levels due to the spread of services such as 5G, IoT, etc., optical connections, including optical transceivers, within and between data centers (DCI) are being upgraded to 400GbE. Additionally, to support expected rapid traffic increases caused by new future applications such as AI and machine learning, 800G optical transceivers are being developed, and first-generation 8-lane 100 Gbps PAM4*4 optical transceivers are now under test.

With a built-in CRU*5, the MP2110A 4ch sampling oscilloscope is the ideal all-in-one solution for analyzing NRZ*6 and PAM4 Eye patterns of 10G-800G optical transceivers and devices. Combining a sampling oscilloscope and CRU in one tester facilitates easy and space-saving operation. This demonstration uses two MP2110A units to measure and analyze 800G optical transceiver 8-lane optical signals in parallel and cuts evaluation times by 50%. Anritsu hopes this test solution will help revolutionize data-center networks.

The 800G transceiver under test is a CIG QSFP-DD800 2x400G-FR4 module. The optical interface conforms to 400GBASE-FR4 interface using dual 53.125 Gbaud PAM4 CWDM. The electrical interface conforms to 400GAUI-4 using 8-lane 53.125 Gbaud PAM4. The transmission distance is 2 km, and the max. power consumption is 16 W.
