100G Optical Ethernet on FPGA demo shows hot swapping between 10x10G and 4x25G optical modules

With OFC 2015 in Los Angeles coming up next week, this is the week for a focus on high-speed optical communications. In addition to the 100G Reed-Solomon FEC IP block announcement from Xilinx that I covered earlier today, here’s a just-posted, 3.5-minute video demo of 100G optical Ethernet modules operating with a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale VU095 FPGA, which incorporates a hardened-core 100G Ethernet MAC. The demo, narrated by Technical Marketing Manager Martin Gilpatric with his usual crystal clarity and a minimal amount of marketing schmaltz, shows hot swapping of 10x10G and 4x25G optical modules while the 100G Ethernet IP implementation keeps pace.
