Molex has introduced new high-speed low-loss flex circuit assemblies, developed using DuPont Pyralux TK flexible circuit material. The assemblies are ideal for electronic data transmission applications such as servers and high-end computing, storage servers and signal processing, the company says.
Molex has launched its OptoConnect range of custom optical enclosures, which provide a complete end-to-end optical management system for high-density telecom and datacom equipment used in communication systems for aerospace and defence networks.
Designed to simplify complex fibre-optic mapping, the OptoConnect fibre routing system uses integrated FlexPlane optical circuitry to provide high-density optical routing on printed circuit boards or backplanes instead of with cables and patch cords.
CableLabs is spearheading efforts to develop a proposal that uses coherent optics to dramatically boost the capacity of hybrid fibre coaxial networks, reports Andy Extance
Systems vendors are using intelligent software to squeeze more performance from optical networks. Pauline Rigby reports on developments at OFC 2017
