Firecomms Expands Into India And South East Asia


Strategic agreement with Tecnomic Components adds support for customers from initial design to volume manufacture

Firecomms, a maker of optical interconnects based in Cork, Ireland, has announced a partnership with Tecnomic Components, a distributor in South East Asia and India that supports customers from initial design to volume manufacture.

John Lambkin, Firecomms' European managing director and CTO commented: "We are delighted to have entered into this strategic relationship with Tecnomic Components and I am extremely excited to partner with them to bring our innovative products to India and South East Asia market. Tecnomic offers a second to none level of technical support for customers, so by leveraging on their expertise I am confident more customers in new geographies will be able to access and utilise Firecomms' leading edge technology."

Gary Tan, director, Tecnomic added: "We are delighted to add Firecomms to our product portfolio from global technology leaders in semiconductors. With our focus on demand creation and customer support, we are confident of taking Firecomms' exciting range of products to key customers in South East Asia and India."

Firecomms combines compound and silicon semiconductor technologies with inventive small-scale integration for rugged communications on short links and across high-voltage isolation barriers. The company's robust transceivers and receivers feature Firecomms' plastic optical fibre (POF) technology making them suited to industrial, harsh and noisy environments and applications.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
