ADVA leads project to create market’s most advanced optical transceiver chiplets
ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that it’s leading a three-year initiative to create the industry’s most advanced optical transceiver chiplets. The chiplets will be key to tackling urgent bandwidth needs by enhancing density, flexibility and efficiency in data center interconnect (DCI) networks. The project entitled “Photonic Embedding of Active Region Laser chips in Silicon (PEARLS)” aims to integrate quantum-dot lasers onto silicon-based electro-photonic integrated circuits (ePICs). By combining silicon photonics, BiCMOS electronics and lasers on a single chip, the size and cost of optical transceivers can be dramatically reduced. The three-year project involves a consortium comprising ADVA, FormFactor, Fraunhofer IZM, IHP, IHP Solutions, Sicoya, Technion and the University of Kassel.
“With this project we’re taking integration and compact design to new levels. By squeezing more technology onto a single chip than ever before, we’re creating a platform for miniaturized optical transceivers able to deliver the space and bandwidth density needed for tomorrow’s DCI networks,” said Jörg-Peter Elbers, SVP, advanced technology, ADVA. “PEARLS not only paves the way for a new generation of intra-data center transceivers, but also facilitates more compact and cost-effective integrated coherent transmitter-receiver optical sub-assemblies (IC-TROSAs) for inter-data center applications.”
The PEARLS project is funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). Its multi-disciplinary engineering team is aiming to take a silicon-based electro-photonic chip platform – which offers monolithic integration of electronics and photonics as already proven in the ADVA-led SPEED project – and extend it to incorporate a third key element: Nanotechnology lasers will be added to the chip, saving space and reducing energy consumption compared to off-chip approaches. This will be achieved with quantum dots just a few nanometers in size. Able to withstand extreme temperatures, they facilitate wafer-scale integration without the need for a thermo-electric cooler or a hermetic package.
“Within this very exciting project, IHP will develop the technology platform. Together we’re breaking new ground and laying the foundations for the next generation of low-energy, space-efficient optical transceivers,” commented Bernd Tillack, managing director, IHP GmbH. “The PEARLS project will pave the way for optical transceiver chiplets – modular transceiver chips with an unprecedented level of optical and electronic integration. Built on top of a standard BiCMOS process flow, the new technology will also be a major step forward for sustainable DCI networking.”

New Phase 3b Interim Data from STARDUST Study Show Two-Thirds of Patients with Moderately to Severely Active Crohn’s Disease Achieved Clinical Remission After Two Doses of STELARA® (ustekinumab)14.2.2020 07:00:00 CET | Press release
The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced interim data from the Phase 3b STARDUST study. At week 16, 79 percent of patients with moderately to severely active Crohn’s disease (CD) achieved clinical responsea and 67 percent were in clinical remissionb after receiving one ~6 mg/kg intravenous (IV) dose followed by one 90 mg subcutaneous (SC) dose of STELARA® (ustekinumab), open label.1 Intestinal ultrasound (IUS) responses were assessed and were detected as early as week 4.2 Week 16 data (digital oral presentation or DOP 13) and IUS response data (DOP 10) from STARDUST are being presented as part of a digital oral presentation at the 15th Congress of the European Crohn’s & Colitis Organisation (ECCO).1,2 The primary endpoint of the 48-week STARDUST study is comparative endoscopic responsec among adult patients with CD receiving ustekinumab maintenance therapy.3 At week 16, patients who achieved a ≥70 point decrease in Crohn’s Disease Activity Index scored
Edwards Launches New Compact Dry Vacuum Pump With the Highest Pumping Density on the Market13.2.2020 13:07:00 CET | Press release
Edwards launch the new nXRi high performance compact dry pump, with lower input power and zero maintenance, bringing real performance improvements and cost benefits across a range of applications. Initial variants will provide pumping speeds of either 60 and 90 m3h-1 , four times more pumping speed than a similar sized dry pump. This press release features multimedia.
