Optimizing fiber for consumer device connectivity

ClearCurve® VSDN® Optical Fiber

ClearCurve® VSDN® Optical Fiber

ClearCurve VSDN® optical fiber is designed to support emerging high speed interconnects between computers, operating systems, gaming consoles, tablets, and more.

It is necessary that optical fiber used within consumer environments is able to be bent and pinched without losing quality, speed, or connectivity. ClearCurve VSDN fiber optimized design addresses these challenges with ultra-low bending loss and superior mechanical reliability.

In addition, ClearCurve VSDN fiber maintains high bandwidth at large alignment tolerances and enables inexpensive connectivity solutions by allowing relaxed alignment tolerances through an 80 µm core size and high numerical aperture.
