We are on the verge of a new era of human connectivity and communications – the Internet of Space (IoS) is upon us. The explosion of worldwide communications over the past 25 years has led to the pervasive use of mobile and land communications equipment with an abundance of platforms, applications and devices all driving the growth of many of the largest businesses in the world.
Technology for optical interconnects is vital in the industry, since processor speeds are outpacing copper wires for bandwidth and latency among devices, including VPX. During our recent interview, Gerald Persaud, VP Business Development at Reflex Photonics, told me this is a solvable problem, even in the harsh environments of military and outer space.
The LightABLE™ embedded optical module can directly drive 100 µm fiber optic cables commonly found in older aircraft, eliminating the need to re-cable the aircraft to achieve higher interconnect bandwidth.
Reflex Photonics' products are intrinsically robust making them the ideal choice for the most demanding environment. The sealed optical path guarantees optimum performances over high temperature and humidity ranges. LightABLE based products can be surface mounted and meet the strictest shock and vibration requirements for industrial and military applications.
