Introduction to Multimode Waveguides (MMWG) as an alternative to copper traces.
When we consider future switch designs, the interconnects between components on the board will need to scale performance in bandwidth and power consumption. In this webinar, we provide an introduction to Multimode Waveguides (MMWG) as an alternative to copper traces. In terms of raw performance, MMWG promises full optical bandwidth (200~300Thz). Topics for this webinar include a look at the basic elements of a MMWG system, and a presentation of link modeling and simulation data. Our presenters include Joshua Kihong Kim, Senior Signal Integrity Engineer in Photonics and Electronics, Hirose Electric USA and Marika Immonen, Senior Manager, Applications Engineering Liaison and Optical Technology, Commercial Technology at TTM Technologies Inc.

Future Directions for Optical Component Manufacturing Nov 17, 2021
This 60-minute webinar will discuss innovative manufacturing techniques for future optical components. When we think about scaling the output of co-packaged optics, there are several technical challenges that must be overcome, including how to deal with channel spacing, fiber count, polarization, optical coupling and mux integration. This webinar features Cudoform and Huber+Suhner two leading companies in this space.
Expanded Beam Optics for Ensuring High Speed Fiber Interconnect Reliability with 3M & Rosenberger
How do you ensure the reliability of a fiber connection to a switch at very high line rates or once co-packaged optics (CPO) solutions come to market? Dust is always a concern, especially at 400G and above, when even a small contamination can lead to magnified disruptions. Reliable optical interconnects are key! The latest OSFP 4.0 spec introduces support for Expanded Beam Optical (EBO) technology, opening up new possibilities. This webinar explores what makes the Expanded Beam concept unique for fiber optic connectors, how EBO contributes to increasing operational reliability, and the wide range of applications for which EBO can be used.
