Meeting the challenge of accurately assembling active optical cables

Oct 27th, 2015

AOC is one of the most efficient solutions currently available to meet the rapidly rising demand for bandwidth, performance, capacity and availability f. e. in large data centers. AOC modules operating at 40 Gbps are considered mainstream today. So, more and more vendors are looking to enter the highperformance segments providing up to 100 Gbps, if not aspiring right away up to 400 Gbps.

Amicra Microtechnologies is up to the challenge and one of the worldwide leading providers of assembly tools for the manufacturing of AOC modules. The company is focusing its efforts and resources on extreme accurate placement and bonding techniques for VCSEL (vertical cavity surface emitter) chips and PIN (positive intrinsic negative) diodes. In its chosen field of precision placement processing Amicra offers high-accuracy (down to 0.5μm) microassembly cells, high-speed inking systems as well as laser and LED testing systems.
