HOUTEN, The Netherlands -- ThreeFive Photonics, an innovative photonic chipmaker based in the Netherlands, today announced the world's first multiwavelength receiver on a single chip. The product, named Argo, is intended for application in optical telecommunication networks. Argo takes a 2.5 Gbps light beam as its input that consists of several different wavelengths or colors, separates these signals, and converts them from light into an electrical signal. The ultra-compact chip is delivered in a package the size of a sugar cube, providing a space saving of more than 80% when compared to the conventional solution that it replaces. "Size reduction is extremely important in today's market for this type of systems", says Wouter Deelman, CEO of ThreeFive Photonics. "Argo will be applied mainly in metropolitan networks, where network operators typically have to install systems at the premises of business customers. In this environment space is expensive; operators don't want to lease new buildings to install their equipment." ThreeFive Photonics will be presenting this, and other products, at OFC 2002 in Anaheim, California, and is happy to receive you in booth # 3486 in Hall C.
