The automation project took five years of trial and error with integration of semiconductor manufacturing processes and optical communication technology, BKSTEC has successfully developed what it says is the world’s first modularized automated production of HDMI fiber optic cables. Trial production begins in June of 2021 and phase one is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
The monthly capacity is expected to reach 50,000 units, and 250,000 units by 2023.
“Automation replaces the complex manufacturing of the manual process, which in turn increases production yields. Additionally, automation improves production efficiency through perception modules, AI learning and monitoring. The time needed for training, replication process and ramping up production will be drastically shortened,” said BKSTEC’s chairman Zheng-Xiang Chen.
The company’s current solutions include HDMI 2.1, USB 4.0, DisplayPort 2.0, USB-C 240W cables and extenders.
