The information-oriented society is composed of a telephone, music, TV, digital data, recorded messages - the list goes on and on. And as the amount of information increases, a transmission medium to deliver it quickly. efficiently, and accurately becomes ever more important.
Now, a remarkable new medium has emerged to challenge the wire and microwave telephone circuits, radio waves, and satellite communications, that handle the bulk of today's information.
This new medium is called fiberoptics. It offers several advantages compared to other forms of communications: lower weight and cost, high transmission capacity, and extraordinary noise immunity.
We were among the first to recognize the future of optoelectronics. Many years of experience in the technological development and implementation of this remarkable medium have yielded a full line of products covering a wide range of applications.
One of the keys to success in optoelectronics lies in our Optical Semiconductor Devices. These devices are outstanding examples of our technology and know-how at work: Each is the result of extensive research and development and is subject to rigorous on-the-job testing before it can be listed in our product catalog.
This synthesis of technical sophistication and hard-nosed practicality means that our Optical Semiconductor Devices are both highly reliable and extremely cost-effective - no matter how you use them.
