Molex investment targets high speed optical interconnect

A strategic investment and collaboration between Molex Optical Solutions Group (OSG) and Elenion Technologies will jointly develop, manufacture and promote silicon photonic-based product solutions. Targeting CMOS technology and high-volume manufacturing processes, the companies intend to develop interconnect solutions that scale to 400Gbit/s and beyond.

Lily Yeung, Molex Ventures’ vice president, said: “This investment and collaboration combines Elenion’s key strength in advanced silicon photonics core technology, with Molex’ core capabilities in complex product integration, efficient manufacturing and global sales and marketing. [It] provides the most advanced and compelling product solutions to our customers.”

Amongst Elenion developments is a monolithic integrated modulator/receiver assembly (pictured) for high speed communications. The coherent optical engine is said to supports 100/200G communications, whilst the small form factor enables its use in pluggable transceiver and on-board applications.

“Collaborating with Molex will significantly accelerate production and deployments of our silicon photonic technology serving global customers that demand an ever-increasing pace of innovation for high-speed optical communication solutions,” said Elenion’s CEO Larry Schwerin.
