Companies to define a new, industry-standard for high wavelength count, O-band, DFB, continuous wave (CW) laser sources

CST Global has announced that it is founding member of a group of companies signed up to a multi-source agreement (MSA) to define a new, industry-standard for high wavelength count, O-band, DFB, continuous wave (CW) laser sources.

CST Global is helping to spearhead the standardisation, along with industry leaders and household names, Arista, Ayar Labs, imec, Intel, Lumentum, Luminous Computing, Quintessent, Sumitomo Electric, II-VI and Macom. The CW lasers are critical to the integrated photonics devices used in next-generation artificial intelligence and data-centre applications.

Billy McLaughlin, MD at CST Global, said, “The MSA will initially define a specification for the optical interface of the Continuous-Wave Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CW-WDM) laser sources. The specification will be made available throughout the photonics industry, allowing the development of compatible products from multiple vendors. It is seen as a decisive step to enhance market growth, improve customer choice, and encourage competition.”

Andrew McKee, CTO at CST Global, said: “The standardisation of optical components is critical to developing high-volume, low-cost, laser solutions in future. Using our InP100, commercial, laser platform, the CW-WDM MSA will enable CST Global to provide next generation DFB lasers in a more standard format. This will eliminate the high levels of complex customisation we often see today.”

The MSA also includes ‘Observer' members comprising Nvidia, AMF, Axalume, Coherent Solutions, Furukawa Electric, Global Foundries and Scintil Photonics.

AngelTech Online Summit is now available to watch ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Online Summit witnessed over 900 registrants for the digital event, which took place virtually on Tuesday 19th May.

The Summit was designed to ensure the global compound semiconductor, integrated photonics, sensors and PIC pilot lines communities could stay connected and would serve as a significant supplement to the annual Brussels face-to-face conference, rescheduled for 17th and 18th November, 2020.

The event included 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines respectively.
