Over the next several weeks, the Phasebridge operations will be integrated into the Ortel division of Emcore, which is located in Alhambra, CA. Emcore management anticipates that the transaction will increase its projected fiscal 2006 revenues by approximately $2 million.



Founded in 2000, Phasebridge provides miniaturised multi-chip system-in-package optical modules and subsystems for a wide variety of markets.



“Together with the technology and product portfolio of Ortel and the recently-acquired JDSU Specialty business, Ortel will be able to offer a set of component and subsystem solutions in the FOG, RF, microwave, and terahertz product markets,” said Dr. Hong Hou, Vice President and General Manager of Emcore’s Ortel division.
