GigOptix Develops Parallel Optical for Consumer Electronics

GigOptix announced an expansion from the datacom market into optical links for consumer electronics.

The company is positioning its parallel optical devices for use in embedded active optical cables (AOCs), pluggables and optical backplanes targeting high speed optical data links for consumer electronics connectivity and applications, such as:


1. Tablets, ultrabooks, and smartphones using the highest video and display resolution

2. 4K/8K high resolution video capture and multi-link transfer for video recording and consumer TVs in the living room and in studios

3. High definition video broadcast links for end points with reaches of greater than 100 meters

4. High speed applications used in 2D and 3D security and safety systems, gesture recognition and motion tracking

GigOptix confirmed that its parallel chipsets are used by a global electronics OEM to enable full production of 4K high definition video capture and transfer in several of its consumer products.  Specifically, GigOptix 4-channel parallel devices were used in 40 Gbps active cable transfer rates to support increased video frame rates and HD 3D imaging.

“GigOptix optical driver and receiver technology is moving towards high volume applications with the integration of our chipsets in applications such as 4K video systems. System designers are migrating to our parallel chipsets for consumer applications as they face increased data rate and signal integrity challenges with copper interconnects and copper ribbon cables,” said Dr. Raluca Dinu, General Manager and Vice President of the Optics Product Line at GigOptix.
