ODI is the abbreviation for Optical Data Interface, a new high-speed interface standard for advanced instrumentation and embedded systems. ODI breaks speed and distance barriers by relying on optical communication between devices, over a simple pluggable optical cable.
With speeds up to 80 GBytes/s, ODI is designed to address challenging applications in 5G communications, mil/aero systems, high-speed data acquisition, and communication research. Though managed by the AXIe Consortium, ODI is not specific to AXIe, and works equally well with any product format, whether AXIe, PXI, LXI, VPX, or a traditional bench instrument design. Standard ODI ports enable communication between instruments, processors, storage, and embedded devices.

Once interoperability testing is complete, preliminary specifications will transition to final formal specifications.
