Advanced Photonix, Inc. Announces a Design Win With Leading OEM Telecom Systems Provider Based in China, in 40 Gigabit High Speed Optical Receivers

ANN ARBOR, Mich. Jan. 31, 2011 Brazil Russia India China


China Robin (Rob) Risser China

The BR-40D exemplifies the company's continued technology leadership in 40 Gb/s and emerging 100 Gb/s high-speed optical receivers.  Picometrix offers the industry's most complete line of 100 Gb/s and 40 Gb/s HSOR solutions for both client-side and line-side modulation formats, including NRZ, RZ, DPSK, DQPSK, ODB, DP-QPSK and DP-BPSK.

The new design win is for 40 Gb/s long haul communications in dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems that utilizes 40Gb/s DPSK (differential phase-shift keying) modulation.  Our receiver utilizes the company's patented photodiode arrays to limit timing skew, which is important for DPSK modulation schemes that are used in dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems. DPSK modulation takes advantage of phase modulation to extend transmission distances with high tolerance to crosstalk. This in turn lowers cost for systems implementation and decreases power consumption.

Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Presented to Conductix-Wampfler for its Pioneering Inductive Power Transfer System

LONDON Jan. 31, 2011

Currently, electric vehicles require lengthy periods of direct charging, while battery limitations inhibit long operating ranges. In contrast, Conductix-Wampfler's innovative inductive power transfer system provides a user-friendly method of charging vehicles at pre-scheduled stops or at given opportunities, increasing their operating ranges while supplying the vehicles' energy storage devices with enough energy in order to get to the next charging station, i.e. in scheduled operation of buses, without using higher dimensioned battery packs.

"Conductive charging requires the driver to physically plug-in the vehicle to an electrical outlet, whereas inductive charging takes place automatically without physical contact," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sanketh Gudar.  "Therefore, inductive charging is highly beneficial because it helps drivers avoid having to connect and disconnect a source of direct charging at each charging station during the route or before and after parking the vehicle."

This type of system offers considerable cost savings through reduced transmission losses and lowered need for repeated charge and discharge cycles of the battery. Reduced dependency on conventional charging points, which require handling of power cords and plugs, maximum protection against vandalism, improved safety and minimised impact of weather are other added advantages.

Inductive power transfer systems equipped with Conductix-Wampfler's technology make rapid charging possible, i.e. at bus stops, and are better than current wired chargers. They are safe and do
