TeraXion, a provider of optical components and modules, and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) have announced a strategic partnership that it says will lead to the development and fabrication of TeraXion’s new modulator products family.
The company says the agreement covers its next-generation Indium Phosphide high-speed modulators for coherent transmission systems at 100 Gb/s and beyond. Work will take place at NRC’s Canadian Photonics Fabrication Centre in Ottawa.
'Today's announcement is another important milestone supporting our strategy for rapidly delivering state-of-the-art high-speed modulators to our customers,' said Alain-Jacques Simard, president and CEO of TeraXion Inc. 'The Canadian Photonics Fabrication Centre’s proven track record for bringing products to a commercialisation level has been a key factor in our decision to rely on this partner.'
