Teraxion embraces silicon photonics for its products

Teraxion has become a silicon photonics player with the launch of its compact 40 and 100 Gigabit coherent receivers.

The Canadian optical component company has long been known for its fibre Bragg gratings and tunable dispersion compensation products. But for the last three years it has been developing expertise in silicon photonics and at the recent European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) exhibition it announced its first products based on the technology.

 

"You don't have this [fabless] model for indium phosphide or silica, while an ecosystem is developing around silicon photonics"

Martin Guy, Teraxion

100 Gig: Is market expectation in need of a reality check?

“It could easily be ten to 15 years before we see 100Gbps in a big way on the public network side”

 

Mark Lutkowitz, Telecom Pragmatics

MultiPhy eyes 40 and 100 Gigabit direct-detect and coherent schemes 

Visiting Israeli start-up MultiPhy at its office in Ness Ziona, near Rehovot, involves dancing around boxes. “We are about to move,” apologises Ronen Weinberg, director of product management at MultiPhy. But the company will not have to travel far. It is crossing buildings in the same Ness Ziona Science Park, moving in next to Finisar’s Israeli headquarters.
