Opportunities & Trends in Optoelectronic Manufacturing

An OIDA Workshop collocated with OFC/NFOEC 2012
Monday, 5 March 2012 - Los Angeles, CA

The OIDA Opportunities & Trends in Optoelectronic Manufacturing workshop will bring together experts and decision makers from the industry, government, and investment sectors, and academia for a one-day high-level, collaborative discussion on manufacturing trends and opportunities.

The North American optoelectronics industry has undergone significant changes over the last decade. The escalating end-user demand for bandwidth, coupled with the attendant pricing pressures, continue to pose significant challenges to the industry. To stay competitive, the industry has addressed this challenge by off-shoring optoelectronic component and board level packaging and assembly. Recently, the US Government has announced a string of initiatives in manufacturing to facilitate development of advanced manufacturing technologies as well as to provide impetus to growth of jobs in the United States.

Featured Speakers include Leaders from:

  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Corning Incorporated
  • DARPA - Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
  • Infinera Corporation
  • NIST - National Institute of Standards and Technology
  • NRC - National Research Council, Canada

The goal of this industry-centric event is to examine the economic drivers that lead to off-shoring, to determine what manufacturing technologies and business incentives are needed to facilitate more on shore manufacturing, and to delineate topics of technology focus in optoelectronics that might be used to address government manufacturing initiatives.

Workshop attendees and OIDA members receive copies of speaker presentations as well as a summary report of the event. Registration also includes a continental breakfast, lunch, and an evening reception. Attendees also receive free admission to the OFC/NFOEC exhibit hall.
