Direct Optical Wiring (DOW)

Disruptive innovation in optical interconnects

Today’s data centers are struggling to cope with increasing demands for artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) workloads or 5G/6G applications, defense and security.

The disruptive innovation of direct optical wiring (DOW) in integrated optical interconnects will drive the future of high-performance computing.

Direct Optical Wiring (DOW) Bonding Technology

  • Cutting-edge metal wire bonding-like optical wiring
  • Simple open-to-air polymerization of polymer solution
  • Nanoscale ultra-thin diameter, as thin as 0.2 μm
  • Robust and reliable thermo-mechanical properties
    -High-temperature/high-humidity resistance up to 250°C
    -Low-temperature resistance of – 70°C
