In this meeting, we will have an update about new trends and considerations for packaging and testing of optical modules including passive/active optical alignment, wafer-level vs die level packaging and testing, thermal control, volume vs prize and new manufacturing needs in co-package optics. Key players in the packaging field will discuss about the adoption of standards, packaging requirements for new applications and development of large-volume manufacturing processes.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube
