Sanan IC Expands Optoelectronic Foundry Services
Large-scale foundry services target customised VCSEL and arrays, along with standard products for optical comms
Sanan, a wafer foundry, has announced the expansion of its optical portfolio to provide a large-scale foundry services for customised VCSEL and arrays, along with standard products for optical communication applications.
"Our executive team recognises the tremendous business opportunities in serving high-growth optical communication and consumer application markets," says Raymond Cai, CEO of Sanan IC. "Cutting edge optical products and foundry services are paramount to accommodating the rapid adoption of automotive, big data and 5G wireless communications technologies. Sanan IC's robust supply chain and state-of-the-art technology can meet these demands, which is why we are committed to making our components and services commercially available worldwide."
With a broad range of wavelengths available in-house, Sanan IC says it enables fast, cost-effective design and manufacturing of high-power VCSEL lasers, high-speed VCSEL lasers, distributed feedback (DFB) lasers, avalanche photodiodes (APD) and monitor photodiodes (MPD).
Sanan IC can also deliver turn-key solutions. With the ability to ensure its supply chain, Sanan IC provides a dedicated capacity for GaAs and InP epi growth, and epitaxial wafer fabrication on 2-inch, 4-inch and 6-inch platforms.
Sanan IC˙s portfolio of optical manufacturing technology includes a family of high-power diode lasers that deliver high-brightness and provide exceptional reliability for a variety of markets, such as medical, datacom, telecom and printing. Additionally, Sanan IC offers a range of foundry services for numerous applications.
Sanan IC˙s launch comes on the heels of LightCounting˙s report that the optical transceiver market will rise at a 15 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2020 through 2024. Additionally, Yole Developpement analysts expect the global 3D imaging and sensing market to expand from $5 billion in 2019 to $15 billion in 20251, at a 20 percent CAGR during this period.
