When alignment speed is critical and accuracy needs to be at the nanoscale, for projects from planar testing to packaging, PI has the award-winning solution. The FMPA Fast Multichannel Photonics Alignment system is a 2017 PIC Awards finalist, which rewards excellence, innovation, and success in the worldwide PIC industry. Voting is open until 21 February, with the winners of this prestigious award announced on 7 March at the PIC International Conference in Brussels, Belgium. Already a winner of R&D’s Top 100 most significant products of the year in 2016, the FMPA was recently showcased at Photonics West 2017 in San Francisco.
The SiP solution
The FMPA Fast Multichannel Photonics Alignment Engine is an advanced alignment system based on a highly specialized digital motion controller with embedded advanced alignment and tracking functionality and a hybrid precision scanning and tracking mechanism combining the advantages of piezoelectric on servo-motorized drives. It addresses the market need for fast, parallel, nanoscale-accurate, multi-degree-of-freedom global optical alignment optimization required in key SiP production steps from planar test to packaging.
Standard and custom
PI has over 4 decades of experience providing in-house engineered precision motion control solutions, and can quickly modify existing product designs or provide a fully customized OEM part to fit the exact requirements of the customer’s application.
