Adolite Unveils Solutions Designed to Speed Data Providers' Growth
Inc., a global optical communications company, today at the Optical
Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC)
2018, demonstrated new technology to help providers keep up with
accelerating data growth.
Data centers, cloud computing providers, and 5G mobile operators can
unblock their supply chains to support data expansion and speed market
innovation and can deliver more data to their customers-faster-with
Adolite's major breakthroughs in materials science and precision
manufacturing. The company's patent-pending process replaces embedded
fiber with polymer to deliver sophisticated, high-performance optical
transceivers, active optical cable (AOC) and on-board optics (OBO)-at
100G (gigabits per second), 400G and beyond.
"Capacity and growth are being held back because manufacturers are
simply unable to produce enough state-of-the-art optical-interconnect
products," said Abraham Jou, CEO, Adolite. "Adolite enables greater
access to bandwidth-intensive, rich content with our breakthrough
technology that ultimately allows cloud computing and data centers to
cost-effectively innovate and differentiate."
According to LightCounting, the global market for Ethernet optics at 25
Gb/s and above is projected to grow by 18 percent annually, exceeding $5
billion by 2022. Optical interconnect manufacturers ave been challenged
to keep up with demand, creating a supply chain bottleneck.
Existing transceiver designs are complex, requiring time-consuming and
error-prone production processes owing to multiple lenses,
fiber-alignment challenges and complicated assembly. In contrast,
Adolite embeds optical waveguides and electrical circuits into a single
layer of polymer flexible printed circuit board (FPC) and directly
integrate lasers and photo diodes onto the FPC using flip-chip bonding
techniques. This simplified physical structure is more flexible and
routable at the board level, and can help streamline the production
Joins Consortium for On-Board Optics
Adolite recently joined the Consortium for On-Board Optics (COBO),
where the company collaborates with high-performance switch
manufacturers, operators, sub-system builders, component makers, system
integrators and others in the optics ecosystem to lend leadership and
expertise to advance bandwidth growth beyond 400G. COBO is developing
specifications for interchangeable optical modules that can be mounted
on printed circuit boards (PCBs). Changing the physical infrastructure
by enabling optical modules to sit above the current framework can help
overcome today's limitations.
