Fabrinet Contracts for Transceivers
OneChip Photonics of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, has selected Fabrinet as the contract manufacturer for its photonic integrated circuit (PIC)-based passive optical network 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. Cayman Islands-based Fabrinet, a vertically integrated precision optics and electronics manufacturer, will use the operations of its Pinehurst campus in Thailand. Privately held OneChip manufactures optical transceivers based on monolithic PICs in indium phosphide for access networks and other mass-market broadband applications.
