Light On Board® OE-ASIC

Optically enabled ASIC packaging technology

The Reflex Photonics Light on Board® Optically Enabled Packaging technology is a fully integrated solution for converting between high-speed electrical and optical I/O.


The Light on Board® optically enabled packaging technology is comprised of pre-aligned low-profile optical sub-assemblies (LightABLE™) mounted upon a high-speed printed circuit board along with the ASIC. Short traces connect the high-speed electrical TX and RX signals to the Reflex LightABLE™ optical engines. Multi-fiber optical ribbons then attach to the optical engines for connectivity between chassis’, blades, and ICs.
