Multiannual contract signed between 2 high-tech companies


Effect Photonics BV and Global Electronics BV sign multiannual contract.


Contracts for production and co-engineering of all hardware were signed on the 19th of June 2019. The signing took place in Effect Photonics’ headquarters in Eindhoven between Mr. James Regan, CEO of Effect Photonics BV (EP) and Mr. Meino Toering, Managing Director of Global Electronics BV (GE).

The signing marks the culmination of 4 years of intensive planning, preparation and cooperation between the 2 companies. Beginning of august 2019 GE will, as a part of their Electronics Manufacturing Service, start the mass production of EP `s highly innovative products for the worldwide high-tech telecom industry. The unique character and functionality of EP products will mean a giant leap forward in building 5G networks and datacenters.

GE consultants played an important role in the making of the final design. Fast cost-effective prototyping and design for manufacturing analysis by GE enables EP to stay within their time-to-market window.

Profile Effect Photonics BV
Founded in 2010, EFFECT Photonics delivers highly integrated optical communications products based on its Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical System-on-Chip technology.

As a spin out of the prestigious Technical University of Eindhoven, EFFECT Photonics takes a platform approach to integration using high-yielding building blocks within the wafer.  Growing different quaternary alloys of Indium Phosphide on a single wafer means that all of the active and passive optical functions of a system can be created within a single chip, which is then combined with simple packaging, designed for high-volume, low-cost manufacture from the very start.

The key enabling technology for DWDM systems is full monolithic integration of all photonic components within a single chip and being able to produce these in volume with high yield at low cost. With this capability, EFFECT Photonics is addressing the need for low cost DWDM solutions driven by the soaring demand for high bandwidth connections between datacenters and back from mobile cell towers.

EFFECT Photonics develops and delivers highly integrated optical products based on InP (Indium Phosphide) which is the material of choice for creating efficient laser light sources, waveguides, modulators, and photodiodes used in optical communication systems throughout the world.
