Smiths Interconnect to acquire Reflex Photonics
Reflex optical transceivers deliver high signal density and ultra-fast speeds for low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) solutions. Reflex products are mainly used in harsh environment advanced systems such as AESA radars, high-performance computers, satellites, automotive applications, in-flight entertainment, and high-resolution cameras.
These components will complement Smiths Interconnect’s product offering with the addition of a core fibre optic capability that will help address the needs arising from high speed data transmission in market segments requiring high reliability. Reflex’s products, patents, and references will provide significant differentiation to Smiths Interconnect, supporting the company’s ambition to be partner of choice for innovative and high speed connectivity solutions for demanding applications. In addition, Reflex’s location in Canada will open this key geographical market to Smiths Interconnect.
“Reflex’s focus on harsh environment applications where high reliability is the key purchase criterion, makes the company a renowned player in the marketplace” said Paul Harris, VP Sales and Marketing. “Its commitment for strong performance and its focus on innovation are the perfect fit for Smiths Interconnect’s long-term strategy and will provide our customers with a wider range of solutions encompassing multiple market segments”.
