Micralyne and Adament to develop MEMS-based fiber-optic subsystems

Micralyne, Inc., an independent MEMS developer-manufacturer specializing in high-value applications, today announced a collaboration with Adamant-Kogyo Co., Ltd., a leading supplier of fine precision products for the optical communications industry, for the development and manufacture of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)-based fiber-optic subsystems. The companies’ joint solutions will serve markets for which a high-performance, ultra-reliable sensor-enabled communications backbone is essential.

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 subsystems.

“Micralyne’s strength in optical MEMS component integration in performance-intensive industrial applications complements the subsystem 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 fiber-optic sensors.”

“The global market for fiber-optic point sensors and related subsystems is growing exponentially,” said Yoichi Shimoda, president, Adamant. “In fact, the market research firm, ElectroniCast, has forecast a compound annual growth rate of more than 20 percent between 2012-2017, reaching US$3.98 billion by 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.”
