"The technology demonstration is one in a series of recent innovations 
delivered by Altera, including the industry's first OpenCL program for 
FPGAs and 28-Gbps transceiver technology delivering the industry's 
highest data rates with superior signal integrity. Altera has been 
showing select customers the demonstration over the last quarter and 
will showcase it at the Optical Fibre Communication Conference and 
Exposition (OFC) being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from 
March 6 to 8, 2012, in booth 2825."

That's more than 2 years ago.
