Our main innovations

Light coupling technology

Proprietary breaking through optical coupling technology at wafer-level using a 3D polymer microoptics to enable low losses interface (down to 0.1dB) at very low size optical aperture & optical mode. Relax alignment tolerances (up to ±30µm at 1dB losses). Compatible for SMF, MMF and MCF / PIC, VCSEL, PD and more.

Passive fiber
holder fixtures

Mechanical fixture to provide
self-alignment assembly from single fiber to Nfiberarrays. Capability of high-volume industrialization is provided by our in-house wafer-level manufacturing processes.

Si electrical interposer

Si interposer gathers OE/EO, optical and electronics components on one chip to integrate your sub-assembly. Our advanced eWLP interconnects offers millimiter-waves performances. All these solutions are compatible with standard processes such as wire-bonding or flip-chip techniques.
