Lombard, IL, August 8, 2001 � Corona Optical Systems Inc., which manufactures high-speed optoelectronic components and subsystems, today announced it has begun customer sampling of the world�s first OC-768 VSR parallel optical transmitter and receiver pairs. The optoelectronic devices facilitate efficient, high-speed optical connections in communications and data networking equipment. Corona�s modules feature a throughput of 40 Gbit/s in a 13 x 13-mm BGA package�roughly the size of a dime�which reportedly makes them the smallest parallel devices available.
