"The rapid growth of custom package consumption will be driven significantly by multifiber transceiver packages -- up to 256-fiber links -- for VCSEL-based telecom transceivers," said Jeff Montgomery, ElectroniCast founder and chairman. "The continuing strong drives toward greater miniaturization and increased automated assembly/test will have a major impact on package designs."
The forecast includes markets and competitive analysis, including North American consumption of optoelectronic packages, segmented by merchant market and captive production, analyzed for 2000 and forecasted for years 2001-2005.
