WaveSplitter Pushes 2 Products at OFC

FREMONT, Calif. -- At the OFC conference, WaveSplitter Technologies, Inc., a worldwide supplier of fiber-optic components for optical amplifier and DWDM systems, will demonstrate a very dense 25 GHz, 160 Channel DWDM module transmitting signals at a high data rate of 10 Gbits/second. This combination of dense channel spacing and very high data rate signal addresses the need of DWDM system integrators to reduce the cost of higher bandwidth solutions by packing more channels into the available bandwidth while simultaneously increasing transmission speed.

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.
