Corning recently declared the launch of ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber, the latest advancement in the bend-insensitive fibers of ClearCurve series. This fiber has been specifically designed to support the inflow of high-speed interconnects between PCs and other electronics devices.
According to the Division Vice President and Director, Worldwide Marketing, Corning Optical Fiber, Barry Linchuck, the consumer electronics market has now been presented with optical connectivity. Besides providing higher connection speeds, Corning benefits the device makers with its dynamic connectivity, enhanced design flexibility, and cost effective solutions.
The rugged designed ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber is capable of operating intermittent bends with radius down to 1.5 mm that represents excellent mechanical reliability and ultra-low bending loss. ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber has higher numerical aperture and a greater core size, in contrast to fibers for telecommunications. It provides lower-cost connectivity needed for consumer applications, offering increased bandwidth requirements over 10 Gbps for consumer electronics applications.
