Optical Interconnects For Data Centers — Lighting The Cloud
By Iridian Spectral Technologies

The demand for storage and data transfer capacity has increased dramatically as data storage and computing resources have moved into the cloud over the last decade. The need to constantly access and transfer data to and from, as well as within, data centers has placed a huge load on the interconnects connecting the backplanes of data servers. This, in turn, is expanding the role and capability of optical interconnects and drives with in the cloud.

Testing High-Volume LED Luminaire Builds

The lower operating costs of LED luminaires drive growing demand for them in consumer and commercial markets. This increased demand requires an adaptation to improved quality testing methods that can provide superior measurements and not slow down the process of production.
