International venture capital group 3i Group plc has invested about $30 million in DenseLight Semiconductors Private Ltd, a Singapore-based photonics solution provider. According to 3i, the investment was utilized to build up DenseLight's manufacturing capability, and expand DenseLight's R&D program, which has resulted in 30 patent-pending inventions.

DenseLight has developed revolutionary photonics technologies that the company believes for the first time enables the commercial fabrication of integrated optical subsystems incorporating both active and passive components onto a single InP chip.

"DenseLight is poised to be a major player in providing advanced component solutions to our customers," claimed Yee-Loy Lam, DenseLight's chairman and CTO. "As the functional requirements for optical components multiply with the evolving complexity of global optical networks, our technologies will become very important, providing a vital solution for today's customers."

Added Lam, "DenseLight's goal is to continuously invent and implement market technologies to render high-yield and high-volume manufacturing of next-generation optical components. We believe that DensePIC will enable a paradigm shift in next-generation optical networking, significantly reducing total cost of ownership for our customers."
