Reflex Photonics Branches out to New Markets with the Introduction of Two New Series of Transceivers

Press release date: Dec 12, 2017

Reflex Photonics is proud to introduce two new lines of products targeting high-end space and industrial applications.

Leveraging its expertise in embedded optical communication modules for defense and aerospace, Reflex Photonics is now offering the LightSPACE™ radiation-hardened optical transceivers for space applications and the LightVISION™ robust, screw-in optical module for industrial applications. From terrestrial to space applications and beyond, Reflex is committed to becoming the prime supplier for all demanding optical interconnect applications.

The LightSPACE embedded optical modules are rugged devices engineered to withstand radiation doses as per the European Cooperation for Space Standardization ECSS-Q-ST-60-15C, while offering high bandwidth (greater than 150 Gbps) in a chip-size package.

The LightVISION module is a robust, screw-in, industrial RoHS generic part that could have a variety of optical interfaces such as the LightSNAP. LightSNAP adds a standard MPO pluggable optical interface to the LightVISION module. This approach offers a standard MPO cable connection with a robust, board mounted optical engine providing small size (footprint) and convenient optical cabling at the same time.

Guillaume Blanchette, PM at Reflex Photonics adds:

“With the introduction of the LightSPACE and the LightVISION line of products in Q1 2018, we have broadened our portfolio to address the rugged, high-speed optical interconnect needs of equipment developers for space and industrial markets. The growing number of applications we will be able to develop with these new customers is truly exciting. One such applications is high-speed cameras where the LightVISION will outclass pluggable optical module on environmental requirements, as well as size and power consumption.”
