Fabless semiconductor supplier KDPOF provides innovative gigabit and long-reach communications over Plastic Optical Fiber (POF), making gigabit communication over POF a reality.
KDPOF technology supplies 1 Gb/s POF links for automotive, industrial, and home networks. Founded in 2010 in Madrid, Spain, KDPOF offer their technology as either ASIC or IP (Intellectual Property) to be integrated in SoCs (System-on-Chips).
The adaptive and efficient system works with a wide range of optoelectronics and low-cost large core optical fibers, thus delivering customers low risks, costs and short time-to-market.
KDPOF technology has been selected as the standard of choice within IEEE and ETSI, as our integrated circuits use advanced communications techniques to obtain the best performance from the plastic optical fiber channel. Among different public recognitions, KDPOF is proud to belong to the exclusive club of Spanish “PYME INNOVADORA” that the Spanish Government provides to the top innovative SME’s in the country.
Horizon 2020 SME Project: CarNet
KDPOF has the successfully completed the H2020 Project, a considerable EU Research and Innovation program running from 2014 to 2020. KDPOF’s target was to take the next steps into replicating and validating their Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) technology to implement and standardize a robust solution in the automotive industry after having successfully launched and qualified a family of ASICs for the consumer and professional markets … read on
