TeraXion, a provider of optical components designed for high-speed networks, and Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC), a designer and manufacturer of avionics systems, are joining forces to design next-generation transceivers.

Through this partnership, the two firms say CMC will benefit from TeraXion’s expertise in designing high-speed, high-volume components for fibre-optic telecommunications. In turn, TeraXion will benefit from CMC’s expertise in the design of high-reliability avionics components, to better meet the ever-increasing reliability requirements of civil optical communications systems.

'Not only does CMC’s expertise enable TeraXion to stay ahead of the curve in the telecom industry, this partnership also allows TeraXion to widen the applicability of its products and technologies within the avionics market, since CMC is a major player in this field,' said Ghislain Lafrance, vice-president of business development at TeraXion.

'This collaboration with TeraXion will provide an opportunity to offer the higher-performance products that the avionics market is looking for, while shortening the development cycle, which should give us a significant edge on our global competitors,' explained François Lamarche, director of hybrid microcircuits at CMC.
