SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 23, 2004 -- Olympus Partnership Development Group (PDG) has opened an optical foundry service. The Optical Foundry will include Olympus' aspherical lens research, development and products and additional products especially for the Optical Fiber Communication field. In addition, the Optical Foundry will complement Olympus' existing MEMS Foundry by offering world-renowned OEM optics, optical design, prototyping, manufacturing, integration and testing for MEMS-based modules. The result will be the world's first MEMS, electronics and optical foundry service that offers OEM customers a complete MEMS-based solution from concept to finished and tested MEMS modules.
"We are very excited about adding Optical Foundry Services to our customer offerings," said Olympus PDG vice president Lawrence Wang. "Our customers get world class MEMS design, prototyping and manufacturing, but they also get Olympus' world renowned optics quality with skilled lens designers and manufacturing people to ensure they get the complete module they've envisioned. It's part of Olympus' theme of 'Your Vision, Our Future.' We hope to encourage more fabless MEMS companies and established system companies to partner with Olympus in turning their MEMS-based product dreams into reality."
