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.
