In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we gaze up at the starlit sky and dream of space exploration. We chat with Noel Dube (Reflex CES) about the differences between Low-Earth Orbit (LEO), Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) and Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) and investigate the unique challenges each of these orbits present designers today. We also discuss the role of optical transceivers and interconnects will play in … Read More → "When You Just Can’t Fix It"
May the odds be ever in your favor. – The Hunger Games
