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.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov
