Fabrinet to Make OneChip’s PIC-based PON Transceivers
OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, March 7, 2012 — OneChip Photonics has selected Fabrinet as the contract manufacturer for its photonic integrated circuit (PIC)-based passive optical network (PON) transceivers.
Under the agreement, Fabrinet will provide a range of manufacturing services for OneChip, including optical component attachments for the company’s bidirectional optical subassemblies, and final integration and testing of its fully packaged optical transceivers.
Fabrinet, a vertically integrated precision optical, electromechanical and electronic manufacturer, will use the operations of its Pinehurst campus in Thailand, which experienced minimal disruption from the area's epic flooding (See: Thailand Flood’s Impact on Optics Will Continue Well into 2012).
In other news, OneChip named Dan Meerovich as its vice president of global manufacturing operations. He will be responsible for building the company’s volume manufacturing capabilities and ensuring cost-effective and efficient operations across its supply chain.
Before joining OneChip, he served as vice president of manufacturing operations at Multiplex Inc., where he established and managed a wholly owned manufacturing subsidiary in China.
Privately held OneChip manufactures optical transceivers based on monolithic PICs in indium phosphide for access networks and other mass-market broadband applications.
