Make a better life through electronic photonic innovation

CEO's greetings


The first problem we solved is that if you need say 120 power sources, it will be expensive, take a lot of bench of space and be hard to control. We create XPOW, a smart driver device that simplifies multiple voltage and current sources. It drives DC supply to 120 output channels with compact, affordable and easily controlled by your workstation or remotely. The new emergent trends or technologies that will benefits is the era of on-chip electronic and photonic integrated circuits that require smart electronic controller, which basically trying to replace the bulky, complex and arrangement of fiber network in data center, wireless backbone, machine learning processors, quantum computing devices and internet of thing with on-chip solution. This offers high-speed processing, low energy consumption and also cost reduction.


The second solution is the integrated laser controller that used as a transceiver in telecommunication, machine learning processor and data center infrastructure. We are moving toward our developments, those are the chip-scale driver and will not only increase the energy efficiency but also bandwidth and reduce infrastructure cost deployment.
