NeoPhotonics Boosts Capacity In China

The manufacturer of indium phosphide (InP) based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), has opened a new factory to cope with rising demands. NeoPhotonics will target high volume optical modules in cloud computing, broadband access, and 4G/LTE wireless networks


NeoPhotonics Corporation has made its first shipments of optical transceiver modules out of its new, high capacity factory in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China.

“This milestone represents our commitment to our customers for production capacity to support their increasing need for high speed optical modules in the accelerating build out of broadband network infrastructure around the world," says Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics.

“Rapid growth in cloud computing, video and mobile applications is driving increased demand for optical modules in datacenter, 4G/LTE networks and FTTx deployments, both in established markets as well as emerging regions, such as the BRIC countries," he continues.

The new factory consists of approximately 80,000 square feet of production space, which includes approximately 50,000 square feet of clean room area. The production lines use state of the art manufacturing equipment for optical sub-assembly (OSA) fabrication and final module assembly and test. Modular work cells are designed to support rapid reconfiguration of production lines, which allows quick reaction to the changing needs in the dynamic market of optical modules for high speed communications worldwide.

The Dongguan factory is the latest addition to the company’s manufacturing capabilities, which include existing facilities in Shenzhen, China, Tokyo, Japan and Silicon Valley, California.



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.
