Finalist for ECOC Exhibition Industry Awards 2023

We’re proud that our KD7251 multi-gigabit transceiver has been shortlisted as finalist for ECOC Exhibition Industry Awards for 2023. It’s nominated for most innovative Product Award in the category “Chip-Scale Packaging/Optical Sub Assembly”. The winners for each category will be announced live at the Product Focus theatre at ECOC Exhibition on Tuesday, October 3, from 11:40.

The awards emphasize technology and product commercialisation; they highlight significant achievements in advancing the business of optical communications, transport, networking, fibre-based products, photonic integration circuits and related developments. The ECOC committee have reviewed the progress of advanced technologies from research to commercialization including volume production as well as new and innovative products.

The categories for most innovative products are about looking across the industry—what new product is driving change in its respective market segment. What’s timely and helping to increase the use of optics. Metrics would include design features that are photonics, electronics, thermal, mechanical, chemical, environmental and carbon footprint based.

We look forward to meeting you in Glasgow! In order to schedule a meeting or book a free space for the demo presentation, please contact us beforehand or visit us onsite at stand 937.
