Since SABIC’s founding in 1976 by a royal decree, it has exhibited a remarkable ability to do what others said could not be done.

Ranked among the world’s largest petrochemicals manufacturers, SABIC is a public company based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 70% of the company’s shares are owned by Saudi Aramco, with the remaining 30% publicly traded on the Saudi stock exchange. SABIC’s growth has been nothing short of miraculous. Today, the company has operations in around 50 countries with a global workforce of over 31,000 talented individuals.

Advanced Materials Solutions

The thermal properties of optical components become critical as power, processing, and utilization increase with faster data rates. For future optical components, several advanced materials are being considered.


Dr. Peter Johnson, Staff Scientist at SABIC, who discusses thermoplastic optical integration in co-packaged applications. Dr. Johnson obtained his Ph.D in Chemistry at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Design Considerations for an On-Board Optic or Co-Packaged Optic Switch

Next generation applications within datacenters continue their trend toward data intensive usage models and resource disaggregation. To meet the next generation application requirements, cost, power, latency, and overall bandwidth of each component needs to be considered for both existing applications and new use cases. The removal of the optical pluggables from the faceplate provides an opportunity to re-evaluate the faceplate design configuration for optical connections, heat management, and power into a network switch or datacenter server.
