The aim of OptiPulse is to engineer a fresh kind of communications infrastructure that is cheaper, easier, and faster to construct, and that delivers faster connectivity than those of any other wireless networks in the world.
OptiPulse objective is to create and implement free space optical communication links that are high bit rate (10 Gbps and faster), low cost, fast deployment time, highly flexible and mutable, extremely easy to install, and consume less energy of current RF and mm-Wave5G systems. This will complement and improve these systems. optical wireless communication using mutually incoherent near-infrared invisible photons that are safe for the eyes and propagate with little air loss.
Many of man's greatest evolutionary advances resulted from advances in communication. The clay tablet, writing, language translation, printing press, radio, TV, internet, computers, and cell phones are all part of that story. The only way to simplify communications infrastructure for connecting the public is through disruptive innovation.
The recent demonstration of a new type of photonics light source disrupts the current wireless methodology, resulting in a wider band of low coherent light source with a laser-like beam and controllable projection of multiple Gbps invisible infrared light at about the same wavelength as your TV remote. The single channel chip (seen below) has 19 lasers and tests at 25Gbps simple on off keying with zero errors, with enough power to travel over a mile on a safe low coherence invisible light beam.
This photonic light source is a game-changing technology. In divergence, it behaves like a laser, but it has the advantages of an incoherent light source, such as scintillation mitigation, superior eye safety, and lower power for linking a greater distance than a comparable laser source. It is low-cost and capable of very long distances, with "selectable" divergence and direction, making it a breakthrough in beam directing for rapid wireless connections.
Application engineers can imagine the future by using it as a tool. Evaluation boards are now being evaluated and will be offered to OEMs in Q4 2023. Our understanding of wireless connectivity will be challenged by the scope and complexity of developing this new technology.
