New Consortium To Pioneer 100G CLR4 Adoption
Silicon based manufacturers, Intel and Arista spearheaded the creation,
The 100G CLR4 Alliance was organised by a group of industry leaders, major data centre providers, networking companies and optical vendors who are in support of a transceiver based upon 100G CWDM (Coarse Division Multiplexing) LR4 (4 wavelengths) in the 1310nm window and 20nm spacing, hence “CLR4."
Although many of the 100G CLR4 Alliance members manufacture silicon based products, III-V experts are also members; these include Oclaro, Neophotonics, Fujitsu and MACOM.
Alliance partners believe that this approach will enable the rapid development and adoption of this market segment. Conversely, the lack of low-cost, 100G transceivers may become an impediment to the adoption of advanced CPUs, Flash, SSDs and switching silicon to build the next generation systems for cloud, HPC and enterprise data centres. This alliance may evolve into an MSA over time.
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
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.
