Profile: EMCORE Corp (EMKR.OQ)
7 Dec 2016
EMCORE Corporation, incorporated in 1986, is engaged in designing and manufacturing indium phosphide (InP) optical chips, components, subsystems and systems for the broadband and specialty fiber optics market. The Company focuses on linear fiber optic transmission technology. The Company operates through Fiber Optics segment. The Company provides optical components, and also end-to-end solutions for high-speed communications network infrastructures, enabling systems and service providers to meet demand for bandwidth and connectivity. The Company's advanced optical technologies are designed for cable television (CATV) and fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) networks, telecommunications and data centers, satellite communications, aerospace and defense, wireless networks, and broadcast and professional audio/video systems. The Company has manufacturing facilities located in Alhambra, California; Ivyland, Pennsylvania, and Langfang, China.
The Company's fiber optics products enable information that is modulated on light signals to be transmitted, routed (switched) and received in communication systems and networks. The Company's Laser, Receiver and Photodetector Component Products provide optical components, including lasers, photodetectors, and various forms of packaged subassemblies. Its products include bare die (or chip), distributed feedback (DFB) lasers, positive-intrinsic-negative (PIN) and avalanche photodiode (APD) components for 10 gigabit per second (Gb/s) Ethernet, InfiniBand, fiber to the home (FTTP) and telecom applications. The Company's CATV Products are used in hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) networks that enable cable service operators to offer multiple advanced services to meet the demand for high-speed Internet, on-demand and interactive video, and other advanced services, such as high-definition television (HDTV) and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP). Its CATV products include forward and return-path analog and digital lasers, photodetectors and subassembly components, broadcast analog and digital fiber-optic transmitters, and quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) transmitters and receivers.
The Company has developed Fiber-To-The-Premises (FTTP) components and subsystem products to support plans by telecommunications companies to offer voice, video, and data services through the deployment of new fiber optics-based access networks. The Company's FTTP products include passive optical network (PON) transceivers, radio frequency over glass (RFoG) optical transceivers, analog fiber optic transmitters for video overlay and high-power erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA), analog and digital lasers, photodetectors and subassembly components, analog video receivers, and multi-dwelling unit (MDU) video receivers. The Company's Satellite/Microwave Communications Products include transmitters, receivers, subsystems and systems that transport wideband RF and microwave signals between satellite hub equipment and antenna dishes. Its products provide its customers with increased bandwidth and lower power consumption.
The Company's video transport product line is engaged in developing targeted solutions that focuses technology needs of its customers in broadcasting, government, transportation, IP television, and security and surveillance applications over private and public networks. Its video, audio, data, and RF transmission systems serve both analog and digital requirements, providing solutions for infrastructure upgrades and expansion. The Company's RF module design and high-speed parallel optics provide a suite of ruggedized products that meet the requirements of the United States government and defense markets. Its specialty defense products include fiber optic gyro components used in commercial and military applications, high-frequency RF fiber optic link components for towed decoy systems, optical delay lines for radar systems, erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, pulse lasers for light detection and ranging spectroscopy systems and other products. Its products provide its customers with high frequency and dynamic range, compact form-factor, extreme temperature, and shock and vibration tolerance.
The Company competes with Applied Optoelectronics, Finisar, Sumitomo Electric Device, Foxcom, MITEQ, Inc., Evertz and Telecast.
