Amphenol's 300Gb/s Leap®High-Speed Optical Module is faster, smaller, and more cost and power efficient than most conventional datacenter interconnects.

  • Capable of speeds up to 25Gb/s and distances up to 100m
  • 300Gb/s total throughput requires only 1 sq in of board space and 5.4W of power
  • Optical cable can be routed above or around other components in the design
Features & Benefits
  • 1" x 1" layout grid
  • Transceivers can be placed in 2-dimensional layout grid with 1" pitch between adjacent transceivers
  • Uses 2.5x less board space than QSFP28 (12-channels)
  • Ethernet 100GBASE-SR4 compliance (per quad)
  • Ethernet transmission distance up to 100m (multi mode fiber)
  • Compatible with Amphenol MT optical cables
  • Uses off-the-shelf MT optical interface
  • Compatible with Amphenol socket
  • No through holes to connect transceiver - one side of board only
  • Easy to install
  • Two wire control and diagnostic interface
  • Allows for transceiver optimization and monitoring connection discovery, channel diagnostics, and signal status monitoring
  • Data rate transparent from 1.25Gb/s to 25.8Gb/s
  • Supports non-standard protocols in this range of datarates. Note CDR operational bit rate of 25-25.8Gb/s
  • Integrated heat sink design
  • Select from a number of pre-fabricated or customized designs to meet your system needs
  • Water cooled compatible version available
  • Class 1M laser version available
  • Fail safe operation that meets all safety requirements
  • Enhanced Bit Error Rate (1e-12) requires no or limited FEC
  • Lower system latency and better system performance
  • Programmable input equalization
  • 11dB of signal peaking at 12GHz allows for recovery of suboptimal signal condition
  • Programmable output amplitude and emphasis
  • Compensates for PCB traces loss for proper signal conditioning
