The purpose of this meeting is to explore challenges and opportunities in the supply chain for manufacturing photonic devices in the current and future markets needing volume production such as optical communications and automotive. The meeting will bring together equipment manufacturers and companies investing or interested in the further automation of their high precision manufacturing and testing lines, to discuss the production of optoelectronic components and modules (Silicon Photonics, PICs, AOC, VCSEL, Laser Diode, WLP, 2.5D/3D IC, TSV, TCB, Fan-out/EWLP,…) and to identify bottlenecks in process automation for any industry (HPLD manufacturing, fiber-optics and opto-electronics, medical technology, security and military applications, R&D, telecommunications, and others).
