Kaiam offers flattop Mach-Zehnder Athermal AWG for 5G fronthaul


Planar lightwave circuit (PLC) device and transceiver developer Kaiam Corp. has made available a line of ultra-low loss Mach-Zehnder Athermal AWGs (MZ-AAWGs) targeted at industrial temperature 5G fronthaul requirements. The company says the MZ-AAWGs display a flat passband with almost zero loss using the on-chip combination of Mach-Zehnder and AAWG technology, says the company. Read the full story.

Kaiam offers 100G-CWDM4+ transceivers for high performance and reliability


Kaiam Corp. has announced availability of its upgraded 100G-CWDM4 transceiver series for high performance and reliability. The new CWDM4+ optical transceivers provide higher performance than the CWDM4 standard, Kaiam asserts.


MSA standard transceiver specifications can be insufficient in accounting for losses from data center fiber plant variations, causing deployment costs to spike, says Kaiam. Even use of transceivers with low failure rates can cause data center operating costs to rise, the company adds. Kaiam says that its CWDM4+ transceiver resolves both issues at no added cost.

Businesses willing to invest in UK despite Brexit


A US manufacturer of ultrafast telecoms equipment, a South African group making animal feed from fly larvae, and a German pioneer in high-tech building components – three businesses with little in common but for one thing: their willingness to invest in new UK manufacturing capacity despite the prospect of Britain’s imminent departure from the European Union.


Although they all acknowledge the risks surrounding Brexit, the three companies, US electronics group Kaiam, South Africa’s Agriprotein and LTG Lofts to Go, based in Hamburg, say that the UK’s skills base and capabilities in advanced manufacturing are enough to outweigh the disadvantages. Read the full story.

OFC 2017: Kaiam, Corning present co-packaged terabit photonic interconnect


Potential to reduce chip power consumption by half, say co-developers.


Kaiam and Corning showcased an optical engine and single-mode fibre interface connector suitable for co-packaging with a 12.8Tb/s switch chip at OFC 2017, last week. The partners say that by converting high-speed signals to optical within the switch package, this high-density engine has the potential to cut chip interconnect power consumption in half. Read the full story.

Kaiam launches LightScale2 transceiver platform at ECOC


Kaiam says its LightScale2 platform, launched at ECOC 2016 this week in Dusseldorf, Germany, uses a planar approach to combine multiple transmit and receive blocks in a very dense architecture. The approach promises better performance and scalability than standard TOSA/ROSA designs, the company asserts.

Kaiam is sampling CWDM4 100-Gbps QSFP28 optical modules based on this architecture and expects to deliver 200, 400 and higher transmission rate on-board optics via the platform in the future. Read the full story.
