Ii-VI Wins Supplier Awards From Hisense


Company recognised for its supply of VCSELs and other components for datacom transceivers

II‐VI, a US-based suppler of optoelectronic devices and micro-optics, has won two supplier awards from the Chinese company Hisense.

At a supplier event hosted by Hisense, II-VI was presented with two Core Supplier and Outstanding Quality awards by Hisense Broadband chairman Weiping Huang. The awards are in recognition of II-VI's high-speed VCSELs for short-reach datacom transceivers and active optical cables (AOCs), as well as microfilters and assemblies for long-reach datacom transceivers.

Hisense recognised II-VI for supporting their ability to meet the sustained demand for their datacom products, which is driven by the global buildout of the cloud infrastructure, particularly in China where the hyperscale data centre footprint is growing rapidly.

“We are very proud to receive our third award from Hisense in three years, in recognition of our ability to be a reliable partner and scalable supplier of high-speed VCSEL devices,” said Karlheinz Gulden, VP, Laser Devices and Systems Business Unit. “We look forward to expanding our strong relationship with Hisense now that II-VI offers one of the most complete portfolios of optoelectronics in the industry, based on world-class GaAs and InP technology platforms, which will enable data centre upgrades to 200G and 400G.”

“This Hisense award is an honour and a strong testament to our micro-optics technology platform differentiated by its very low loss performance, especially compared with other alternatives in silicon photonics,” said Guanglong Yu, VP, Advanced Optics Business Unit. “Our precision thin-film coatings technology platform has long proven its low-cost and high-volume capabilities, with hundreds of millions of filters deployed in fibre-to-the-home networks worldwide. Enabled by high-volume automated assembly manufacturing, it is again the technology of choice for wavelength multiplexing and demultiplexing in long-reach Ethernet transceivers.”

II-VI offers optical components and subsystems for 100 m to 10 km intra-data centre applications. These high-speed products include VCSELs, high-speed directly modulated lasers (DMLs) and electro-optically modulated edge-emitting lasers (EMLs), high-speed and monitoring photodetectors, micro-optics and micro-optic subassemblies, as well as driver electronics chip sets.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
