BKSTEC aims to replace consumer grade copper cables by reducing fiber optic cost through automation
TAIPEI, June 25, 2021 / PRNewswire / – BKSTEC, a leading designer and manufacturer of fiber optic cables for HDMI 2.0 and 2.1, USB 3 and 4, DisplayPort and more, with years of experience providing fiber optic solutions to OEM / ODM partners, announces the first fiber optic production line, which reduces the cost of fiber optic to replace copper cables in current and future generations of HDMI and USB products.
In response to the growing market for high-resolution, high-bandwidth digital audio and video transmissions, the demand for optical fiber cables with high-capacity, high-speed and stable transmission has increased. However, due to the higher costs, the proliferation of fiber optic cables has remained low so far.
Automation dramatically reduces production costs
A group of engineers were determined to streamline the automation process and started the BKSTEC company. After 5 years of trial and error with the integration of semiconductor manufacturing processes and optical communication technology, BKSTEC has successfully developed the world’s first modularized automated production of HDMI fiber optic cables. Test production begins in June 2021 and the first phase is expected to be completed by the end of 2022. Monthly capacity is expected to reach 50,000 units and 250,000 units by 2023.
President of BKSTEC Zheng Xiang Chen, “Automation replaces the complex manufacturing of the manual process, which in turn increases production efficiencies. Additionally, automation improves production efficiency through AI perception modules, learning and monitoring. The time required for training, the replication process and speeding up production will be significantly reduced. ”
BKSTEC has established partnerships with some of the world’s largest leading brands and is at the forefront of advanced fiber optic solutions. The company’s current solutions include HDMI 2.1, USB 4.0, DisplayPort 2.0, USB-C 240W cables and extensions to deliver the most advanced and comprehensive OEM / ODM solutions.
