KDPOF announced that their Battery Management System (BMS) based on optical connectivity will soon go into production. "We are delighted that by the end of 2019, the first carmaker will start assembly of a battery management system with POF connectivity," stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-founder of KDPOF. "Due to its inherent galvanic isolation, POF perfectly solves the electrical and interference challenges of new powertrain architectures for electric and autonomous driving."

Further applications that rely on the inherent Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) of POF are Integrated Smart Antenna (ISA) modules. For ISA, KDPOF and ALPS have developed a concept for an LTE-A telematics control module with POF links to the central communications hub in order to avoid interference with the smart antenna receivers. KDPOF's GEPOF transceiver KD1053 provides high connectivity with a flexible digital host interface, low latency, low jitter, and low linking time.
