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.

Automotive Seminars with Würth Elektronik: EMC-compliant Optical High-speed Connectivity

Würth Elektronik and KDPOF will jointly present “EMC-compliant optical high-speed connectivity in automotive applications” in an automotive seminar on November 30, 2023 near Stuttgart, Germany. Designed by engineers and technicians, the seminar aims at people interested in practice-oriented content, to get support in the development of error-free electronics and devices. Francisco Sierra, RF Design Engineer at KDPOF, will give insights into our optical technology and present a Flyback Converter with common and differential mode interference. Live demos with plenty room for questions will round up the seminar day.

We’re proud of our technological cooperation with Würth Elektronik, one of the leading manufacturers of electronics and electromechanical components in Europe. Together we are advancing automotive multi-gigabit Ethernet over fiber optics. Read more

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.

In case you’ve missed the presentation, you can watch the replay.
