Tittle:
A Korean company offers energy-efficient and cost-effective optical engines
Summary:
A Korean company, an expert in the field of optical communications, has developed a low-cost and energy-efficient optical engine which is optical communication component for transmission of data amongst mass storage devices such as data centers or super computers as well as high-speed interconnection within large display devices. Partners from system and network integration field are sought for commercial agreement with technical assistance and technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
A Korean company specializes in long-wavelength VCSEL(vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser) and silicon photonics-based single module solutions. Recently, it has developed a low-cost and energy-efficient optical engine for transmission of data amongst mass storage devices such as data centers or super computers as well as high-speed interconnection within large display devices.

This optical engine is based on the company´s patent pending technology and it enables lensless design between VCSEL and single mode waveguide(fiber). It consists of 4 channel optical head and a wavelength multiplexer. The optical head consists of 4-channel long-wavelength VCSELs, a quad laser driver, two sub-mounts, a flexible printed circuit board and a metal plate.

Each channel is modulated by either 10Gb/s(gigabit per second) or 25Gb/s line rate. The optical head is directly attached with a wavelength multiplexer. Instead of coupling lenses, the optical engine adopted the spacer(side wall) between optical head and optical waveguide between VCSEL and optical waveguide. This lensless coupling architecture enables simple and low cost manufacturing procedure compared to that of conventional technology. Without any coupling lens, over 40% of coupling efficiency can be achieved.

There are 3 key technologies that were applied in the company´s products as follows:

1) Silicon photonics technology : optical technology that provides
data transmission within a silicon chip using light waves
resulting in a significant increase in data transmission speed
while decreasing energy consumption and cost by 1/10 of
existing technology
2) VCSEL technology : semiconductor laser diode that emits
light in the vertical direction to the upper surface providing a
more energy-efficient and cost-effective solution
3) WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology :
technology that combines multiple channels with different
light wavelengths to transmit through a single optic fiber cable.

Preferred partners for cooperation are local system integrators, network integrators or partners with relative connection in the government procurement market.

When the partner company sells the company´s products, the company could help the partner by training them with a technical consultancy. It could be provided via Internet or staff visits.
In addition to that, the company is seeking a technical partner who is interested in applying the company´s technology to their own product for a product improvement.
Advantages and Innovations:
1. Transmission distance : ability to operate over 20 times more
distance as compared to multi-mode VCSEL(vertical-cavity
surface-emitting laser) engine
2. Minimized design : half the size of multi-mode VCSEL optical
engine
3. Scalability : 12 times more compared to multi-mode VCSEL
optical engine
4. Price : 1/2 the cost of multi-mode VCSEL optical engine, 1/6
the cost of single mode laser optical engine
5. Energy consumption : 1/3 the energy use as compared to
multi-mode VCSEL optical engine
