(LiDAR関連)II-VI Incorporated and LITE-ON Sign Strategic Partnership Agreement for Volume Manufacturing and Marketing of Semiconductor Lasers for Mass-Market LiDAR

II‐VI Incorporated (Nasdaq:IIVI), a leader in semiconductor lasers, today announced that it signed a strategic partnership agreement with LITE-ON Technology Corporation (TWSE:2301), a global leader in optoelectronic components, to partner in the volume manufacturing and commercialization of packaged semiconductor lasers for mass-market light detection and ranging (LiDAR).

The rapid proliferation of LiDAR in automotive, commercial, and industrial applications is driving the demand for low-cost semiconductor laser devices that can be manufactured in very high volumes. II-VI and LITE-ON will leverage their respective high-volume manufacturing platforms for semiconductor lasers and optoelectronic packaging to jointly commercialize over time a broad portfolio of laser solutions spanning from near-infrared (NIR) to shortwave infrared (SWIR), with the first product to launch in midyear 2020.
