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.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move
Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
