OFC: KDPOF presents new implementation of IEEE 802.3cz Std.

At the OFC – Optical Fiber Communication – Conference, we will exhibit our brand-new multi-gigabit connectivity demo at stand 4848 from March 26 to 28 in San Diego, California, USA, and online. Our setup will show the first implementation in silicon of the IEEE 802.3cz standard. It will operate in multimode multi-gigabit with 2 plates of multimode fiber at 10GBASE-AU.

“As of today, the IEEE 802.3cz standard technology provides the only existing solution for 25 Gb/s and 50 Gb/s single lane connections with 4 inline connectors and a maximum length of 40 meters in the car over OM3 multimode fiber,” explained Luisma Torres Torres, Principal System Architect at KDPOF and active member at IEEE Standards Association.

KDPOF Will Present at Digital WE Days by Würth Elektronik

From October 16 to 19, 2023, Würth Elektronik will organize their “Digital WE Days 2023“. It’s a virtual event with a comprehensive conference program with practice-oriented presentations for you to enjoy. All presentations are live and totally free. On October 17 at 13:30 CEST, Óscar Ciordia will present “Optical multi-gigabit links for automotive“.

Modern automobiles integrate numerous functionalities that require high-speed links for their proper functioning, for example, cameras, radars, displays, sensors, etc. Current solutions based on copper cables do not successfully satisfy automotive requirements at a reasonable cost. However, with the incorporation of fiber optics, KDPOF makes possible optical multi-gigabit links for harsh environments at a low cost. The technology makes these links much more efficient while providing greater reliability and low-cost implementation.

 

Registration is open now. Please register individually for each presentation slot. See the complete program and chose your presentation slot. On the day of the presentation you only have to login with the link from the confirmation e-mail.

KDPOF receives IPCEI investments to build an optoelectronics packaging plant in Spain

KDPOF proudly announced that the European Commission has granted access to the 8.1 billion European investment IPCEI for their projected packaging plant for optoelectronic devices in Spain. “The funding supports us in making our plans of manufacturing ICs in Europe come true in the near future,” stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-founder of KDPOF. “European fabs only manufacture approximately 10 percent of semiconductors worldwide, making us dependent on Asia and the United States. We will pioneer the manufacturing of automotive optoelectronics in Spain in high volume, thus reducing this dependency.” Read more
