Kaiam Corporation Announces Manufacturing of CWDM QSFP28 Modules in High-Volume UK Factory
Sep 28 15
Kaiam Corporation announced sampling lead customers with 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 and CLR4 transceivers manufactured in its high-volume production facility in Livingston, Scotland. Kaiam has pioneered a low-cost manufacturing approach to single-mode optics based on hybrid integration of wafer-based components. The UK factory produces silica-on-silicon integrated optics and silicon MEMS wafers combined in an automated way to make multi-wavelength optics. The 100G product has transferred to production on the same line that supplies 40G QSFP+ in volume into mega-scale datacenters. At ECOC 2015 in Valencia, Spain, Kaiam will show further innovations that reduce not just the cost of the optics, but also the electronics. By adding a silicon photonics component with integrated etectors, amplifier, driver, CDRs, and modulators, the material cost of the 100G QSFP28 is dramatically reduced. Optimum performance in this second-generation transceiver is assured by the continued use of silica-on-silicon chips and MEMS alignment of InP lasers. This hybrid approach of using best-of-breed materials in a scalable platform lays the groundwork for 400G based on 8 or 16 wavelengths, and provides a path to denser integration. At OFC in March 2015, Kaiam demonstrated its unique packaging technology enabling 16 wavelengths in a high-density 400Gb/s transceiver. The company's hybrid Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) approach marries the benefits of proven WDM technology to the extendable roadmap of integrated silicon photonics. Both versions of the 100G QSFP28 can be viewed in booth #647 at ECOC.
Kaiam Introduces CWDM4 100G QSFP28 Transceiver Along with 400G Module Live Demo at OFC 2015
Mar 19 15
Kaiam Corporation announced availability of their 100Gb/s QSFP28 transceiver. The uncooled CWDM transceiver is aimed at CWDM4 and CLR4 low-cost data center applications. Kaiam is now sampling select customers with both the transceiver and 4x25Gb/s TOSA/ROSAs, with volume production expected later in the year. A live demonstration will be conducted at OFC 2015, booth #1751 in Los Angeles. The demo will feature a breakout application where multiple 100Gb/s transceivers can be connected to a single 400Gb/s module through PSM4 fiber. Customers can effectively get the performance of four standard 100G modules in a higher-density 400G unit that’s interoperable with MSA modules. Kaiam’s innovative wafer-based integration technology allows large number of optical lanes to be addressed at high yield and low cost.
Kaiam Corporation Appoints Ron Kaneshiro as Vice President of Engineering
Feb 4 15
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.
