WaveSplitter Pushes 2 Products at OFC
In a separate release:
At the OFC show, WaveSplitter Technologies, Inc., a worldwide supplier of fiber-optic components for optical amplifier and DWDM systems, will display what is believed to be the first 8-inch planar lightguide circuit (PLC) wafer. WaveSplitter has broadened its product portfolio to include the planar lightguide circuit (PLC) technology platform to offer higher optical functionality and integration to meet customers' application needs. This cutting-edge technology enables multiple, complex optical functions to be combined on a single wafer and a higher level of integration, resulting in a cost reduction for system designers. The 8-inch wafer size is the largest silicon wafer currently being utilized in the fiber optics industry and offers more than 2.5 times the surface area of the industry standard 5-inch silicon wafer, yielding many more devices per wafer and enabling system designers more real estate on the wafer in which to integrate multiple functions.
