Photonics lineupNEL has been developing and commercializing optical communications devices since 1995. As a result, we have made a number of achievements such as promoting the standardization of AWG and developing 10Gbps direct modulation uncooled DFB laser modules, the first in the world in an InGaAs device. In the future, in addition to expanding communications products such as the various optical transceiver modules and AWG compound boards based on passive and active optical device technologies that we have developed up until now, we intend to actively provide products that respond to market demands in non-communications related fields such as light source equipment for new wavelengths.
Network LSI and High Speed ICBroadband communication services are spreading rapidly, and in keeping this we are steadily progressing with improvements in the broadband network, starting with the opticalization of access systems and increasing the capacity of metro and long haul systems. Based on our core technologies, NEL provides a variety of products from communication control LSIs for LAN and WAN to 10Gbps and 40Gbps ultra high speed devices and modules. Notably, we are aiming to rapidly realize new optical network equipment employing ultra high speed device technologies and cutting edge optical components. We hope to achieve high quality, low price system LSIs for information appliance equipment and ultra high frequency or low power consumption wireless LSIs.
Codec System Solutions
LSIs and Modules SolutionsStarting with the MPEG-2 LSI "VASA", which has become the de facto standard in the broadcasting and telecommunication systems, NEL is working to upgrade the consumer LSI line-up and develop products using H.264/AVC next-generation imagery compression technology. With the expansion of digital broadcasting, these LSIs are being used by a wide range of domestic and foreign electrical appliance manufacturers and broadcasting equipment manufacturers. We are also developing miniature and lightweight codec equipment and monitory system products. These products are being put to a wide variety of uses by domestic and foreign broadcasting stations, telecommunication carriers, local authorities and system integrators.
Security SoftwareThe security of information and telecommunication is becoming increasingly important in our IT society. In order to achieve a safe and secure telecommunications environment, NEL provides and develops a range of enhanced performance and high speed encryption products. We are adapting a variety of existing ISDN, ATM, FR and leased line network services to IP layers, which are expected to increase in the future. Together with these hardware products we will also provide software products such as certification authority building systems. We are also providing biometric products such as fingerprint authentication LSIs and tokens.
