Opto-Electronics

Opto-electronics is a rapidly developing field where many product innovations are being introduced as the technology advances, leading to increased bandwidth, all-optical switching, and lower costs.
Environmental test, Life Test, and Burn-in techniques are used extensively to prove reliability at both the Development and Manufacturing stages. The precise alignment demanded by opto-electronic devices introduces new resources of parameter drift compared to other components, and this responds well to thermal cycling methods.
