High-Speed 12-Axis Automated Silicon Photonics Alignment System FMPA

The FMPA is a high-speed 12-axis automated silicon alignment system based on a highly specialized digital motion controller (E-712) and a hybrid alignment mechanism to achieve the required long travel ranges without sacrificing stability, resolution, or alignment speed. FMPA is implemented in the E-712’s modular firmware to enable fast, simultaneous alignment and tracking of multichannel couplings in multiple degrees of freedom. Check out the video below for more information on this photonics alignment system.
