Source Photonics Enhances Production Capabilities with the Opening of a New Laser Fab and Assembly Facility

WEST HILLS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#100Glt;/agt;–A focus on meeting growing customer demands in rapidly evolving data
center and 5G markets is behind leading global manufacturer Source
’ expansion.

Source Photonics, a leader in optical component and transceiver
innovation, has confirmed the opening of its new fabrication facility in
Jintan, China, to support its global growth. This further enhances the
company’s advantage in the optical communications industry in which a
majority of manufacturers are fabless. It will double Source Photonics’
capacity of Indium Phosphide (InP) lasers and related components and
will augment the company’s existing fab in Hsinchu in Taiwan, which has
itself doubled its output over the past three years. With a total
investment of over $50 million, this facility supports SP’s commitment
to bringing innovation to meet our customer’s needs well into the future.

The firm’s Jintan fabrication plant includes a fully integrated laser
chip production capability, high-precision TO operations, and an
advanced R&D facility to support the company’s global technology roadmap
and regional customers. Its chip capabilities include base wafer,
regrowth, and chip processing, while its TO operations will support the
advanced requirements emerging for high speed PON and 5G markets. This
investment follows recent expansions at the company’s Hsinchu, Taiwan,
facility which has over 20 years of experience in laser production.
These expansions include significant expansion in MOCVD and advanced
coating technologies. The Taiwan facility also recently completed
expansions to support transceiver assembly in support of customers’
demands for resiliency in their supply chains.

“These new investments support our integrated manufacturing approach,
which is critical to meeting the ever-growing needs of our customers,”
said Doug Wright, CEO. “Managing the entire value chain from laser
production through transceiver assembly gives SP differentiated
capability that enhances speed to market, yields manufacturing
innovations, and offers flexibility our customers demand.”

The new facility includes advanced R&D and reliability lab facilities
and is built in accordance with the company’s proprietary Source
Management System (SMS), which is built around Lean practices. It
includes state-of-the-art environmental controls including a
zero-discharge waste treatment capability that meets the highest
standards in environmental stewardship. As an active member of the
Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), Source Photonics is committed to
maintaining the highest standards in Corporate Social Responsibility
