Ultra-bendable ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber from Corning connects consumer devices

Corning, NY--The newest ClearCurve bend-insensitive optical fiber from Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) called ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber is designed to support emerging high-speed interconnects between computers and other consumer electronics devices. The ultra-bendable multimode fiber has an 80 micron core diameter and can be used in direct interconnect applications for devices with an optical port.

"We are thrilled to introduce optical connectivity into the consumer electronics market," said Barry Linchuck, division VP and director, Worldwide Marketing, Corning Optical Fiber. "In addition to the consumer advantage of higher connection speeds, device makers will benefit from lighter, more robust connectivity with greater design flexibility, and thus lower cost solutions."

With its rugged design, ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber has the ability to handle intermittent bends down to 1.5 mm in radius, while exhibiting ultra-low bending loss and superior mechanical reliability. Unlike fibers for telecommunications, ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber has a larger core size and higher numerical aperture, enabling lower-cost connectivity--essential for consumer applications--while exceeding the bandwidth needs of consumer electronics applications above 10 Gb/s.
