Kaiam Corporation Key Developments

Kaiam Corporation Appoints Ron Kaneshiro as Vice President of Engineering

Kaiam Corporation announced that Dr. Ron Kaneshiro has joined the company as Vice President of Engineering, responsible for high-end modules that use the proprietary MEMS-based integrated optical engines. Most recently Dr. Kaneshiro was COO and VP of Systems and Integration at Glo, a venture-backed company focused on the development and commercialization of advanced LED products using nanotechnology.

Karen Liu Joins Kaiam Corporation as Vice President of Marketing

Kaiam Corporation announced that Dr. Karen Liu has joined the company as Vice President of Marketing, responsible for the product roadmap and expansion of the product portfolio using the proprietary MEMS-based integrated optical circuit platform. Most recently Dr. Liu was Principle Analyst of Components Research at Ovum. In this role, she was responsible for market analysis of new telecoms technologies including photonic integrated circuits.

Kaiam Corporation Demonstrates Ultra-Compact 100Gb/s (4x28Gb/s) Single Mode Transmitter Optical Subassembly (TOSA) at OFC 2014

Kaiam Corporation announced it will demonstrate a 100Gb/s (four lanes at 28Gb/s) transmitter optical subassembly at OFC 2014, booth #1735. Current 100Gb/s transceivers are generally too large, and consume too much power, for high volume applications. The critical component has been the transmitter that generates four signals at 28Gb/s each and a wavelength multiplexer that combines the four lanes into a single fiber. By using internally sourced compact Planar Lightwave Circuits (PLC), and MEMS-based coupling of directly modulated lasers, Kaiam is demonstrating a transmitter that fits into the standard 40Gb/s QSFP form factor. The MEMS-based coupling frees up constraints in the high-speed lines, so that a lower cost architecture with external drivers to the package can be implemented. The same package is suitable for IEEE-standard based LAN-WDM wavelengths, as well as the lower power consumption CWDM variant. Engineering samples at both wavelength sets will be available in the early third quarter of 2014.
