MEMS manufacturer Micralyne has teamed up with optical communication specialist Adamant-Kogyo to develop and manufacture MEMS-based fibre-optic sub-systems. The joint effort aims to serve markets where a high-performance, ultra-reliable sensor-enabled communications backbone is essential.

"The global market for fibre-optic point sensors and related sub-systems is growing exponentially," said Yoichi Shimoda, president, Adamant. "In fact, market research firm ElectroniCast, has forecast a compound annual growth rate of more than 20 per cent between 2012-2017. With demand for high-performance MEMS sensors especially strong and with Micralyne so proficient there, we will work in partnership to map out the best possible solutions for this market."

Building upon a decade-long partnership in the global MEMS industry, Micralyne and Adamant will leverage their respective core competencies to develop new MEMS-based optical sub-systems.

"Micralyne's strength in optical MEMS component integration in performance-intensive industrial applications complements the sub-system design and packaging expertise of our longstanding partner, Adamant," said Mike Ciprick, acting president and CEO, Micralyne. "Through our new alliance with Adamant, we aim to lead the industry in quality and reliability for the wide range of applications that benefit from MEMS-based fibre-optic sensors."
