Freescale's production 0.13μm SOI process is used to fabricate all required electrical and optical components for 10Gb
interconnect up to 2000m using only 1.7W. The optical transceiver cores are monolithically fabricated with CMOS
circuitry required for bias and control as well as the electrical PHY interface. Optical multiplexing of 4 to 10 channels
allows scaling to 40/100Gb.
