2. Major Exhibits

Compound Semiconductor Substrates

Sumitomo Electric’s Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) substrates are widely used for fibre lasers, vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL), power amplifier & switch applications for smartphones, infrared & red LED and solar cells.  Indium Phosphide (InP) substrates are used for long wavelength laser diodes, photo diodes and optical electrical integrated circuits for optical communication devices.  Our Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrates are widely used for optical devices in the blue-violet to green range due to their excellent material characteristics.  In recent years, GaN substrates have been drawing attention for power devices and many more development projects are underway.

Full-colour Laser Module

Sumitomo Electric has developed the world's smallest full-colour laser diode module comprising red, green and blue semiconductor laser diodes.  This new module product is based on our experience in materials and high-precision assembly technologies.  Its stable optical and electrical characteristics make the module suitable for a variety of applications, such as small projectors, illumination and various industrial and medical light sources.

Ultra-high-fibre-count Ribbon Cables

Sumitomo Electric has released a new series of ultra-high-fibre-count ribbon cables to meet the growing need for high fibre density in data centres. 3456-fibre-count slotted core cables are the highest fibre-count optical cables in commercial use. 


For the first time in the industry, Sumitomo Electric has developed a fusion splicer with wireless LAN functionality and the SumiCloud™ system to manage and improve fusion splicer operation via the smartphone app.  SumiCloud™ is a powerful tool that supports your fusion splicer in the field.

Optical Transceivers

Optical transceivers are small modules with integrated transmitters and receivers, and support high-speed data transmission up to 100Gbps compliant with various industrial standards. The WDM (wavelength division multiplexing) application can support larger throughput.


3. Join Us


At the booth, Sumitomo Electric will also introduce many other products associated with Information and Communication.  Visitors can learn about the products through hands-on experience of the devices and board panels.
