SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 10, 2017 — Micro-fabrication foundry Invenios LLC has acquired Varioptic, a liquid-lens developing business unit of Parrot Drones SAS, for an undisclosed amount.

“We are very happy to have completed the acquisition of Varioptic” said Ray Karam, president of Invenios. “Combining the expertise of Varioptic and Invenios will further grow the liquid lens business and permit us to access new markets; therefore, this acquisition is excellent news for Varioptic, Invenios and for our customers.”

Founded in 2002 in Lyon, France, Varioptic was acquired in May 2011 by Parrot. Varioptic’s liquid lens technology enables variable focus, variable tilt or variable cylindrical lenses with no moving parts. Main markets include barcode readers, medical devices, industrial cameras and defense.

Invenios has been working on improving Varioptic’s Optical Image Stabilization lens with an enhanced, low-cost and scalable design. The acquisition will streamline liquid lens development efforts and enable broader market access with an extended product portfolio.

Invenios specializes in the design, development and manufacturing of microfluidics, MEMS and 3D microstructures.
