VI Systems Demonstrates Record VCSEL Transmission
850nm laser transmits 54Gbps over 2.2km of multimode fibre
VI Systems has demonstrated a transmission data rate of 54 Gbit/s over 2.2km with its latest generation of 850nm VCSELs. The record transmission was achieved using multimode OM4 fibre. The standard graded index fibre is specified with 50/125Âµm.
According to the company, the new VCSEL design features a narrow optical spectrum at a high optical output power, which has been developed using computer simulation software which the company implemented to advance the performance of its laser products.
The transmission experiment is based on a conventional non-return-to-zero (NRZ) modulation format. This so called on-off keying (OOK) modulation scheme favors low latency performance in communication networks compared to more complex higher order modulation.
Details of the experiment are published in the latest issue of the Electronics Letters publication of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) with the title '54 Gbps OOK transmission using single mode VCSEL up to 2.2 km MMF'.
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.
