USA: GigOptix Inc. leveraged its position as a key merchant component supplier in datacom markets serving the Cloud, to introduce devices that enable a wide range of high speed optical links for consumer systems and applications.
GigOptix’s parallel optical devices are now shipping in production volumes for use in embedded active optical cables (AOCs), pluggables and optical backplanes targeting high speed optical data links for consumer electronics connectivity and applications, such as:
1. Tablets, ultrabooks, and smartphones using the highest video and display resolution
2. 4K/8K high resolution video capture and multi-link transfer for video recording and consumer TVs in the living room and in studios
3. High definition video broadcast links for end points with reaches of greater than 100 meters
4. High speed applications used in 2D and 3D security and safety systems, gesture recognition and motion tracking
Recently, GigOptix parallel chipsets were used by a global electronics OEM to enable full production of 4K high definition video capture and transfer in several of its consumer products. GigOptix 4-channel parallel devices were used in 40Gbps active cable transfer rates to support increased video frame rates and HD 3D imaging. GigOptix chipsets simplify consumer system designs by being fully programmable and providing advanced signal conditioning for superior optical performance with low power consumption.
