How Photonics Technology Pushes the Frontiers of Digitalisation

Your Needs

Where today's conventional microelectronics technologies are approaching their limits in terms of speed, capacity and accuracy, photonics do overcome these barriers and revolutionise communication. For the steadily growing volume of data that needs to be transported and processed, photonics opens possibilities in addition to the familiar fiber-optic networks to deal with limitations in data transmission and processing.

With the rise of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and the new challenges they bring forth, it can be tricky to keep up with evolving optical test requirements and to equip photonics labs accordingly for testing active and passive optical components by enabling speedy, accurate, and repeatable detection

Our Services

Photonics and coherent optical technology are broadly used in data center interconnects, metro, and long-haul applications. As for example functional testing accounts for more than 30% of chip costs, we at Computer Control are at the forefront to provide and recommend cost and time efficient, automated test solutions.

Discover how we can help at your use of PICs for fiber optic telecommunications aimed at high-speed networks with solutions that shorten time-to-market, reduce cost-of-test, and enable new technologies. Improve your testing yields with R&D-grade solutions that rapidly provide best-in-class measurements.

Our photonics solutions can be incorporated into any wafer-testing handling system with alignment included, provide user-friendly GUIs without any compromise on dynamic performance. They simply integrate in a research test setup or production test bench – covering your needs from lab to live:

  • Fast & innovative component and PIC testing
  • Reduced time and cost with transceiver testing for data centers
  • Next generation data center interconnects
  • High-performance multiport detection system for passive optical component testing
  • PIC testing for next-generation networks

We comfort you to control test gears of photonics!
