TEGEMA Leverages PI Technology In Revolutionary Photonics Assembly Platform Partnership

News

The Dutch system integrator TEGEMA and Physik Instrumente (PI) GmbH & Co. KG have started a cooperation to develop automated systems for assembly and packaging technology in the photonics industry.

Compared to microchips, the production of integrated photonic components is a decisive process step more complex: the coupling technology to connect optical fiber components. For example, individual glass fibers or glass fiber arrays, chips, VCSELs, lenses, diffractive elements or photodiodes. PI offers fast, high-precision positioning systems for this manufacturing step with special firmware routines built into the system controllers. These are already used worldwide for the development of photonic components and are also used in pilot production.

"Many customers request a much higher level of automation, for example when handling photonic chips or applying and curing adhesives," says Scott Jordan, Head of the photonics market segment at PI, and adds: "TEGEMA is an experienced system integrator that has yearlong experience with such questions.”

Arno Thoer, Director project solutions at TEGEMA, is pleased about the cooperation with PI: “The assembly and packaging technology contributes to a considerable part to the total costs of photonic components. The already proven systems from PI form the heart of our platform concepts for the further automation of this process step. We want to contribute to speeding up this process considerably, minimizing the associated costs and thus helping the photonics industry to make a further breakthrough. ” TEGEMA has developed a modular platform for the assembly of photonic devices, with a roughly ten times higher throughput than with currently available solutions. A first demo system has already been set up as a proof of concept. The assembly platform will be launched at the end of April 2020.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
