MULTI Gb/s PLASTIC WIRE

APPLICATIONS

MULTI Gb/s PLASTIC WIRE is a valuable alternative for copper link or wireless in data transmission. With the future expected increase of data traffic and the increase in transmission frequencies, cheap, multi-gigabit and low energy data transmission over meters distance are required.

The main targeted applications are :

  • Transport (embedded electronics),
  • Active cables (VS USB and Thunderbolt),
  • Data centers.

DESCRIPTION

  • This technology is a multi-gigabit communication link, using a plastic fiber as transmission channel.
  • A cladding is designed around the waveguide to make a barrier to any perturbation.

BENEFITS

  • Transmission rate > 10 Gbit/s,
  • More efficient compared to wireless ,
  • Isolation (Fewer external disturbance),
  • Lighter,
  • Low cost (plastic extrusion),
  • Low consumption,
  • Mechanical stability and robustness.
