Reading time ( words)

EFFECT Photonics, a leading developer of highly integrated optical solutions, announced that it has selected Fabrinet as its manufacturing partner for its integrated optical sub-assemblies.

Fabrinet is a global leader in high-precision optical, electronic and mechanical manufacturing services, and a proven partner for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide. As a manufacturing partner, Fabrinet will perform sourcing, procurement, assembly, test, and calibration of EFFECT Photonics’ integrated optical sub-assemblies.

Increased optical bandwidth is needed more than ever before due to a wide range of cloud and cloud edge applications and the increased access speeds enabled by 5G and beyond. Photonics are ideally suited to serve this need, but production currently plays an important role in bringing integrated optics technology to the masses. By leveraging Fabrinet’s leadership in electro-optical and electronics manufacturing, EFFECT Photonics can adapt and scale its integrated optical solutions to meet ever-changing market demands and high-volume requirements.

“Fabrinet is recognized worldwide for its best-in-class expertise in the field of optical product manufacturing and its ability to support the most demanding markets, technologies, and business models,” said Roberto Marcoccia, CEO, EFFECT Photonics. “By leveraging their proven capabilities and longstanding manufacturing prowess, EFFECT Photonics is able to offer our customers increased supply, reliability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.”

“We are pleased to have been selected by EFFECT Photonics as their manufacturing partner to provide production at scale for their optical subassemblies,” said Edward Archer, Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing at Fabrinet. “As a leader in advanced optical packaging and precision manufacturing for complex devices, we are well positioned to support EFFECT Photonics in achieving their business goals.”

R&D Takes Back Seat Amidst Chip Shortage—But It Shouldn’t

12/08/2022 | Malcolm Thompson, NextFlex
As the global chip shortage continues, companies may be tempted to put research and development on the backburner to conserve capital and prioritize production. A primary area of focus has been on increasing production capabilities to meet demand. In this drive to increase capacity, R&D has fallen to the wayside as some companies consider scaling back to refocus on the expansion of manufacturing capacity at current technology nodes. This is a hard choice to make for any company, and even R&D giants like Apple, known for its dedicated investments in innovation, have had to cut R&D budgets below original projections.
