Marktech opens its first photo-detector production facility in California

Marktech Optoelectronics of Latham, NY, USA, whose capabilities span wafer growth through finished packaging and custom solutions, has officially opened its first detector manufacturing facility in Semi Valley, California.

The new plant will feature a class 1000 cleanroom and will focus on standard and custom photo-detectors using both silicon and indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs). Standard packages include TO-5, TO-18, TO-39 and TO-46 with a variety of lens options. Custom-designed products include chip-on-board (CoB) types, modules and hybrids with built-in electronics.

"This is a major step for us, moving into the detection area since we have focused on both IR and visible emitters and LEDs," says Marktech's president William Moore.

Heading up the new venture is Barry Jones, who has more than 34 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of optoelectronic detection and RF microelectronic devices. Prior to joining Marktech, Jones served in various positions including CEO and general manager of Pacific Silicon Sensor Inc and operations manager at Centro Vision Inc in California.
