Calgary, Canada –September 14, 2009 – RAD3 Communications Inc. (RAD3), a communications intellectual property (IP) company, today announced that Innodul AG, a Swiss supplier of Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) products, has chosen RAD3’s advanced Forward Error Correction (FEC) solutions for its POF product line.
Innodul licensed RAD3’s advanced FEC solutions for inclusion in its line of enterprise, industrial, home and automotive POF products. Due to its simplicity POF can carry Ethernet, USB, IEEE1394 and other protocols and is very robust against vibration, EMI, EMC, humidity, and has a wide temperature range. Innodul required a robust and high-data rate FEC solution for its products and chose RAD3, a proven provider of advanced FEC solutions for the communications industry.
“We evaluated a large number of IP companies and RAD3 came out on top.” said Guido Willi, President Innodul. “RAD3’s knowledge of Forward Error Correction technologies and their ability to support both FPGA and ASIC operation at high clock speeds made them the leading candidate. In addition, the level and quality of support provided by Rad3 was excellent and allowed us to rapidly integrate their IP into our products. We look forward to working with them on future projects.”
Commenting on RAD3's success at Innodul, Roger Bertschmann, President at RAD3, said "We are very pleased to have enabled Innodul to get to market quicker with its POF products through the rapid and successful deployment of our leading edge FEC IP and we look forward to extending our working relationship further for their next phase of product developments".
