Olympus has established Olympus Partnership Development Group (PDG)'s Optical Foundry Services. The optical foundry will include Olympus' aspherical lens R&D and products, as well as products for the optical fiber communication industry.

The foundry is expected to complement Olympus' existing MEMS foundry by offering OEM optics, optical design, prototyping, manufacturing, integration and testing for MEMS-based modules.

According to Olympus, companies will now have the option of outsourcing to one or both foundries in designing, developing, and manufacturing their MEMS-based module. The MEMS foundry can deliver the MEMS subassembly by designing and building the MEMS device and also integrating the drive electronics using flip-chip, wire bonding and wafer bonding processes. The optical foundry can then design an optimized optical system to integrate with the MEMS subassembly.
