The innovations in optoelectronics have been propelling the semiconductor industry toward a multitude of growth opportunities. While image sensors and lamp devices, primarily light-emitting diodes (LED), were star performers in the past decade, laser transmitters are emerging as a critical growth driver in optoelectronics. Today, high-brightness LEDs (HB-LED) are providing luminous efficacy equivalent to fluorescent lights. HB-LED suppliers are improving the overall quality of light for general illumination products in homes, businesses, buildings, outdoor lighting, and other applications, such as automotive headlamps and digital signs.
CMOS image sensors are gaining immense traction as an application in automotive-safety systems, medical equipment, video security and surveillance networks, human-recognition user interfaces, wearable body cameras, and more beyond camera phones and stand-alone digital cameras. At the same time, fiber-optic laser transmitters are continuing to be the fastest growing and highly popular optoelectronics product helping network operators cope with increased Internet traffic and video streaming and downloads.
As such, the technological progressions in the arena are opening up a universe of new possibilities for optoelectronics companies. This implies that enterprises looking for companies providing robust optoelectronics solutions have to choose from a plethora of options.
