XLoom Communications, Inc. is an indusrty pioneer for high density, chip-scale optics for LAN, SAN and Grid Computing. XLoom produces BlueFlame™, the industry's first chip-scale, high-speed optical interconnect solution for data center applications. Using our novel XFlame™ technology, XLoom's optical interconnect products overcome copper limitations within server, storage, and networking applications. XLoom's technology provides system vendors with an immediate solution to the high system design costs and physical limitations of copper interconnects.
Opto-electronic interconnects are free from the physical limitations inherent in electrical interconnects that are typical with high data rates. However, current optical solutions have limited use in the computing realm due to their significant high cost and large size.
XLoom addresses the needs of OEMs that are seeking optical interconnects as an alternative to copper for extended reach and ease of use in data centers. The Infiniband market is poised for growth as companies replace their high-end servers with low-cost clustered computers, to provide super-computing capabilities. XLoom's InfiniFlame products cater to this market and address the issue of low latency, high-speed interconnects for applications such as clustered computing for running large data-base applications as well as scientific applications.
XLoom's unique patented XFlame technology, which enables wafer level mass production of opto-electric components using standard semi-conductor processes, enables a 1:10 reduction of size and cost. XLoom's technology is scalable and generic. Products based on XFlame technology target various markets and scale as market requirements advance. XLoom will continue to introduce products targeting different market segments based on the same technology and platform.
