- 2. Major Exhibits
- (1) Ultra-high-fiber-count ribbon cables
Sumitomo Electric has released a new series of ultra-high-fiber-count ribbon cables to meet the growing need for high fiber density in data centers. 3456-fiber-count slotted core cables are the highest-fiber-count optical cables in commercial use.
- (2) SumiCloud™
For the first time in the industry, we have developed a fusion splicer with wireless LAN functionality and the SumiCloud™ system to manage and improve fusion splicers operation via the smartphone app. SumiCloud™ is a powerful tool that supports your fusion splicer in the field.
- (3) Optical transceivers
Optical transceivers are small modules with integrated transmitters and receivers, and support high-speed data transmission up to 100Gbps compliant with various industrial standards. WDM (wavelength division multiplexing) application can support larger throughput.
- (4) Full color laser module
Sumitomo Electric has developed the world's smallest full color laser diode module comprising red, green and blue semiconductor laser diodes. This new product is based on the Company's experience in materials and high precision assembly technologies.
Its stable optical and electrical characteristics make the module suitable for a variety of applications, such as small projectors, illumination and various industrial and medical light source.
- (5) Compound Semiconductor (substrates)
Sumitomo Electric's GaAs substrates are widely used for fiber lasers, vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL), power amplifier and switch for smartphone, infrared and red LEDs, and solar cells. InP substrates are used for long wavelength laser diodes, photo diodes and optical electrical integrated circuit for optical communication devices. The Company's GaN substrates are widely used for optical devices in blue-violet to green ranges due to their excellent material characteristics. In recent years, GaN substrates have been drawing attention for power devices and many more development projects are underway.
At the booth, Sumitomo Electric will introduce many other products associated with information and communication. Visitors can experience and learn about the products through hands-on experience of the actual devices and board panels.
