Press release from: Timbercon

LAKE OSWEGO, OR – August 4, 2008 — Timbercon, Inc., a fiber optic product and solution manufacturing company, announced today the availability of their new XFP Host Test Board. The Timbercon XFP Host Test Board facilitates the testing and programming of Timbercon’s XFP Electric Loopback as well as XFP transceivers.

Timbercon launched their XFP Electric Loopback last month and was approached by customers with the need to program custom memory maps and test the functionality of their existing transceivers. Timbercon has been using the XFP Host Test Board during the development of the XFP Electric Loopback and has decided to produce the board for sale to customers that utilize XFP Electric Loopbacks and XFP transceivers. Existing users of XFP transceivers will be able to perform incoming inspection of devices prior to incorporation in equipment as well as analyze design changes or system modifications made to existing equipment.

The XFP Host Test Board comes complete with operation software and a user manual to enable XFP programming and testing. The board features transmit, receive, computer interface, reference clock, and power supply ports. The XFP Host Test Board is designed to simulate an ideal environment for XFP module testing using Rogers 3003 PC board material and single-ended micro-strip transmission lines. These properties make the Host Test Board as electrically transparent as possible, allowing a more accurate assessment of the XFP modules’ performance.

“Now that the XFP Electric Loopback and XFP Host Test Board products have been successfully released we will focus our engineering efforts on the development of an SFP+ Electric Loopback and SFP+ Host Test Board.” said Dr. Justin Redd, Director of Engineering.
