    Transceiver - Defined

    I could not help but notice that some of the good folks who frequent the LWLG IHub board were having trouble with understanding the concept of a transceiver

    A transceiver is a device comprising both a transmitter and a receiver which are combined and share common circuitry or a single housing. When no circuitry is common between transmit and receive functions, the device is a transmitter-receiver. The term originated in the early 1920s. Technically, transceivers must combine a significant amount of the transmitter and receiver handling circuitry.

    So, to put it in elementary English for the IHubsters. A mouth is speaker. Lungs provide the medium to transmit sound. A brain is the circuit that tells the mouth and lungs what do. All together they are a transmitter. Ears receive sound and convert it to a bio signal. The brain processes the bio signal which is heard. Together the ear and brain constitute a receiver. Now if one adds the mouth, lungs, ears, and brain together they have a transceiver.

    For those who can not comprehend the above, you should stay on IHub.

    • Might be the best thing I've ever read on both iHUB and here. What puzzles me--and it is nothing to do with what you just wrote--don't they have to combine things, we're not sure they have even perfected yet, to create a transceiver?

        That is actually a good question. Since it is still early in the life cycle of these super miniature parts, it may be necessary to separate the two devices as in a separate transmitter and receiver. It would appear the team Intel-Luxtera is building a fully integrated device (i.e. a transceiver). I would expect that GIG and team SOFI are also building a fully integrated device as well. GIG's SFP2 devices are clearly transceivers. However, those are a little larger.

        This is truly groundbreaking and difficult technology. BTW that Thunder whatever tech of Intel's seems to be build for consumers. I don't understand the market for that because storage already runs shower than SATA and they are not designed to run video.
