PCB-mounting SMA housings save 25% board space

PCB-mounting SMA housings save 25% board space
Two high density PCB-mounting SMA (H22) style housings for its wide range of fibre optic transmitters and receivers were unveiled at EDS in Coventry by OMC. The housings save board space and ensure long-term performance. Two space-saving housing styles have been released.

Optical fibre switches allow for easy prototyping

Optical fibre switches allow for easy prototyping
A range of optical switches based on a micromechanical/micro optical design are on offer from LASER COMPONENTS. These allow the switches to be built with a large range of fibres including large core and polarisation maintaining (PM) fibres. The switches can be manufactured to be suitable for a range of wavelengths and have low insertion loss, crosstalk and return loss.

Parallelism technology reduces regression turnaround time

Synopsys has announced that Acacia Communications has successfully deployed Synopsys VCS Fine-Grained Parallelism (FGP) technology in production, to reduce regression turnaround time (TAT) by two times. With its seamless integration into Acacia's VCS simulation regression environment on existing X86 hardware platform, VCS FGP delivered these simulation performance gains without any changes or disruption to the existing simulation flow.

Silicon photonics transceiver displayed at OFC 2017

Silicon photonics transceiver displayed at OFC 2017
At OFC 2017, the largest global conference and exposition for optical communications, imec presented a 896Gb/s silicon photonics transceiver of a few mm2, targeting future Tb/s optical links. This achievement highlights the scalability of imec’s iSiPP50G silicon photonics platform, paving the way for next-gen short-reach optical interconnects. Driven by exponential growth for interconnect bandwidth in datacenters, single-mode optical transceivers will need to scale to Tb/s capacity and be tightly integrated with network switches.

Tech estimates optical network transmission performance

Fujitsu Laboratories and Fujitsu Laboratories of America have announced the development of a new technology to estimate the transmission performance, and to improve the throughput of optical networks. When adding communication paths to existing optical networks using new wavelengths, the transmission speed was previously set at a safe operation level based on design specifications of optical fibers and communication devices.

Switch transmits data at record-low temperatures

Switch transmits data at record-low temperatures
A silicon optical switch newly developed at Sandia National Laboratories is the first to transmit up to 10 gigabits per second of data at temperatures just a few degrees above absolute zero. The device could enable data transmission for next-generation superconducting computers that store and process data at cryogenic temperatures. Although these supercomputers are still experimental, they could potentially offer computing speeds ten times faster than today's computers while significantly decreasing power usage.

'DarkLight' enables visible light communication in the dark

With the rise in wearables such as smartwatches and fitness trackers that rely on smart sensors, and the continued popularity of smartphones, smart devices are taking our country by storm. Wireless data for such devices is typically beamed through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, yet, the new wireless communication technology of "visible light communication (VLC)," has emerged as a new option albeit with limitations due to the challenges it faces in practice, such as being easily blocked or not being able to sustain transmission when light is off.

Discrete board-to-board connectors for LEDs

Discrete board-to-board connectors for LEDs
The use of LED strip PCB’s is popular in the efficient production of electrical lighting solutions. Würth Elektronik eiSos is now introducing a completely series of connectors for connecting LED strip PCB’s: WR-LECO is available with two, three, four or five poles and is attractive due to its very flat design, only 2.45 mm high.
