Company made over 1.1 million units in July, nearly 65 percent higher than pre-COVID levels.

Applied Optoelectronics, a provider of fibre-optic access network products, ahas announced that production of laser diodes in July, 2020 reached an all-time record of over 1.1 million units, nearly 65 percent higher than pre-COVID levels.

“AOI has been investing in capacity by adding additional production equipment, improving our manufacturing processes to increase yield and enhance quality, and adding staff,” said Thompson Lin, Applied Optoelectronics Inc. founder and CEO. “The result of this hard work and investment is that we've reached a significant milestone in terms of laser production capacity. The vast majority of our current laser production is 25G lasers which are in high demand now in our data center and telecom segments, including 5G wireless. This additional capacity will help us meet this increased demand.”

“Having produced over 1.1 million tested and qualified lasers in the month of July is a significant step to achieve our near-term goal of producing 1.5 million lasers per month, which we expect to reach in Q4 of this year,” added Fred Chang, AOI's SVP and North America general manager. “Even more importantly, the significant improvements we've made in our manufacturing process have increased our manufacturing yield, which in many cases have also resulted in improved reliability that is critical for our customers.”
