Molex and Elenion extend investment to bring silicon photonic-based solutions to market

Molex Ventures LLC, a subsidiary of Molex Electronic Technologies LLC of Lisle, IL, USA (which makes electronic components including connectors, cable assemblies, antennas, optical solutions, printed-circuit products, automation and lighting products), has announced a further investment between Molex Optical Solutions Group (OSG) and New York-based Elenion Technologies LLC (which designs silicon photonics-based system-on-chip solutions for high-bandwidth communication and networking applications), collaborating on the next generation of high-baud-rate coherent optical module solutions. The co-development efforts will focus on several new designs that will serve a variety of telecom and datacom applications.

Through the collaboration, Molex will combine its core capabilities of optical technology development, photonic integration, volume manufacturing and global supply chain with Elenion’s next-generation coherent optical engines to deliver coherent optical solutions to the market. “High-speed silicon photonic-based technologies will enable the next generation of smaller form factors, with higher bandwidth and improved power efficiency,” says Adit Narasimha, VP & general manager of the Molex Optoelectronics Segment. “This further investment will enable us to accelerate the introduction of next-generation coherent solutions, broadening the solutions we offer,” he adds.

“With our SiPh technology platform, Elenion is able to rapidly innovate, meeting the future needs of our customers,” says Elenion’s CEO Larry Schwerin.

Elenion’s existing optical engines are enabling CFP2-ACO and CFP-DCO coherent modules. With the introduction of its next-generation CSTAR system-on-chip solutions, Elenion enables new smaller-form-factor engines and pluggables tailored for telecom and hyperscale applications.
