Slightly off-topic post:
I am looking for parallel optic (12-way) transmitter and receiver at ~2.7Gbps, to use with xilinx Rocket IO. Several companies have them on their web sites (Agilent, Infineon, emcore, Picolight, Zarlink), but none of them really sell them, at least in small quantities. They don't even answer to calls and emails. Anybody knows the trick to get them other than faking my email as @cisco.com ?
