Fibre Optics

The advantages of a connection system that can transmit the equivalent of 24,000 telephone calls simultaneously through fibres thinner than a human hair — and over longer distances than would ever be possible with copper media — go beyond their mind-boggling data transmission rate.

Photonics

Photonics

Optoelectronics (also referred to as photonics) are various forms of optical transceivers / receiver assemblies, copper-to-fiber media converters, "active" connectors and cables and other devices used to convert digital electrical signals in electronic equipment into optical signals for high-bandwidth, long distance transmission

Embedded Subsystems

Embedded Subsystems

Embedded Subsystems are printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) that perform a specific task – for example as a network router, Ethernet switch, GPS controller or some other dedicated computing function – within a larger electronic system.
