NeoPhotonics is a provider of photonic integrated circuit-based modules, components and subsystems for use in optical communications networks. The Company's products and those produced by its customers are used by telecommunications and cable service providers to deploy advanced networks for video, voice and other data services at high data transmission rates and low costs. NeoPhotonics' photonic integrated circuits (PICs) combine hundreds of photonic devices on one silicon substrate, thereby dramatically reducing cost and size and increasing reliability and power efficiency.

The Company designs and manufactures PICs using its planar lightwave technology and our micro-electrical-mechanical device technology, along with its nanoscale design, materials, fabrication and metrology. The NeoPhotonics' PIC technology is a key enabler for meeting today's optical communications market demands. Just as electronic integrated circuits displaced discrete electronic devices, dramatically reducing costs while increasing reliability, thus enabling the electronics revolution of recent decades, an analogous advance in photonics is gathering momentum using photonic integrated circuits. This photonics technology transformation similarly allows dramatic increases in functionality within component-level products.
