VISIT: Vertically Integrated Systems for Information Transfer

This is a stand in the SME village, located in Zone C: SME Village. Stand number: C07

VISIT, the Vertically Integrated Systems for Information Transfer project, is focusing on fibre-optic communication devices.

The VISIT project focuses on strategic, high-value photonic components and subsystems for economic broadband access and local area networks. The central objective is the research, development, testing and exploitation of optical transmitters capable of data transfer rates of 40 Gbit/s and beyond. This will be achieved by completely new laser designs, overcoming the limitations of present devices. Visitors to the exhibit will be able to see a demonstration of the latest VISIT-developed technology. This is an ultra-high-speed optical link based on the modulated vertical cavity surface emitting laser or VCSEL technology that will be on show.
