15 January 2003. The new HOLA (High-speed Optical Link for Atlas) LSC and LDC cards are now commercially available from CERNTECH. The HOLA interface is a standard S-LINK implementation which is based on 2.5 Gbps components and uses a Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) multimode transceiver with LC connectors for the optical interface. The HOLA can transfer data at the full S-LINK bandwidth of 160 MB/s with one duplex fiber. Furthermore the HOLA will be cheaper than the ODIN.
