OpenLight has signed a strategic partnership with Jabil to fast track the manufacturing and delivery of integrated photonic chips (PICs)

PICs are increasingly being used across a wide variety of applications and markets, including datacom transceivers, automotive LiDAR, AI/ML, HPC, and healthcare.

As PICs become increasingly critical to address the growing demand for faster data processing, supply chain complexities hinder seamless transitions from silicon wafers to packaged heterogeneous integrated systems. This partnership offers one-stop “Silicon to Solutions” services to accelerate end-to-end production and optimize manufacturing efficiencies – from assembly and packaging to burn-in and testing.

OpenLight was set up to focus on custom photonic ASIC (PASIC) designs that integrate the components of silicon photonics devices, both active and passive components, into one chip.

“We are very pleased to work with such a prominent global leader in high-volume manufacturing and together, we look forward to enabling a holistic path for our customers to take our PASIC wafers to packaged solutions for the markets and applications we serve,” said Dr. Adam Carter, CEO of OpenLight. “This will simplify the management of our customers’ supply chain, paving the way for scalability as their business grows.”

“As we continue to invest and grow our existing capabilities for manufacturing optical solutions for our customers, we are excited to partner with OpenLight and leverage its unique business model to produce PASIC solutions. Combining their expertise with Jabil’s high-volume experience in optical packaged solutions, we’re poised to deliver exceptional value to our customers,” said Matt Crowley, SVP Cloud and Enterprise Infrastructure of Jabil. “At Jabil, we also have the ability to take these PICs and build them into a wide variety of packaged solutions per our customer’s requirements.”
