VI Systems will contribute to the project by developing singlemode vertical-cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) and photodetector technologies. The company will also integrate its optoelectronic devices with photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and SiGe-based BiCMOS ICs, assembling the components into fully packaged active optical cabling.
