Gigabit fibre technology provider KDPOF has developed a1000BASE-RH SFP module for in-vehicle gigabit optical connectivity – the first of its kind in the global market, according to the company.

The design of the new small form factor pluggable transceiver module is based on a standard SFP that supports MSA registers over the I2C bus. The module can operate at 100 and 1,000 Mbps. It integrates the entire 1000BASE-RHC PHY and the header connector for the SI-POF optical on-board network. “Our new SFP module was recently tested and validated in a functional demo,” explains Carlos Pardo, CEO and co-founder of KDPOF. “We are proud to reach the first milestone for 1000BASE-RH SFP optical modules that will be integrated into the automotive optical ecosystem in the future.”

KDPOF’s new SFP module supports 1000BASE-X, 100BASE-X and SGMII (with and without auto-negotiation) electrical interfaces. It monitors received optical power, link margin, junction temperature and supply voltages, among others.

Aukua Systems, a provider of Ethernet test and monitoring solutions, has already announced its intention to add KDPOF’s SFP module to its product line: “As a provider of automotive Ethernet test tools, we have been eagerly awaiting the module. We look forward to integrating the 1000BASE-RH optical interfaces into our test equipment to evaluate KDPOF’s optical network design,” said Suds Rajagopal, co-founder and vice president of the company.

The SFP design has been sampled and validated. Currently, KDPOF and Aukua are working together to optimise the 1000BASE-RHC SFP module for deployment in the third quarter of 2022.
