The series comprises a number of bite-sized webinars on a full spectrum of topics covering the product lines, technologies & capabilities, important and trending topics, ML-based process control and our Performance Services,), critical aspects of HVM as well as other themes. The plan is then to continue with further topics in 2021.

Interested participants are invited to register for free and once only for the full series (below), and can themselves then pick & choose which topics interest them the most by simply participating in individual webinars (or not).

The typical format will include a brief ‘hello’, a short introduction and any relevant news, followed by the topic of the individual webinar taking up the bulk of the time allocated. We will then round up with a Q&A session (open-ended), where participants are free to ask questions, or simply leave as they wish.

The webinars take place Wednesdays at 3pm (CET).

For 2020 see weekly schedule and brief descriptions below.
For 2021, the webinars will take place every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, starting January 20, 2021.
More details and topic descriptions to follow.

Upcoming webinars

Each webinar will be recorded and will be viewable ‘on demand’ post-broadcast for all registered participants, thus enabling one to catch up on missed episodes, or on ‘the story so far’ for those registering later. Reminders and links will be sent in advance of each webinar, together with a brief synopsis of what will be discussed within that seminar. (N.B.: ficonTEC reserves the right to change and re-schedule the program to suit any needs and requirements, both internal and external).

December 16, 2020 – Wednesday 3pm (CET)

Automated Assembly for Lidar
Dr. Gregory Flinn + Torsten Vahrenkamp, CEO

LiDAR is a strongly trending topic currently, with market research indicating hyper-growth over the next few years – and not just in automotive. With several technology approaches for both the light projection and image capture side of the device, naturally there is great opportunity for implementation of photonic assembly and testing.

Published webinars

The first webinar provides an introduction to the series and a quick overview of ficonTEC’s activities. It can be freely viewed here (see top of page). All subsequent webinars (see below) require a one-time registration that provides access to all previous and future premium content.

November 25, 2020 – Wednesday 3pm (CET)

BondLine / CustomLine
Stand-alone & In-line Systems / Dr. Gregory Flinn + Andreas Ott

A rundown of our fully automated, high-precision position-&-attach bonder product lines for photonic-enabled chips and dies. We compare and contrast the technologies and capabilities each product line can provide, and give some insights as to their usage.

November 18, 2020 – Wednesday 3pm (CET)

AI/ML-based Process Control
Dr. Gregory Flinn + Dr. Colin Dankwart + Dave Pritts

AI/ML-enabled applications  in manufacturing are in the news, and rightly so. However, while already a cornerstone of Industry 4.0, there is still some way to go for their implementation in the photonics sector. We overview the application of this technology at ficonTEC and what this means for the customer.

November 04, 2020 – Wednesday 3pm (CET)

Passive vs. Active Alignment
What you need to know! / Dr. Gregory Flinn & Dr. Simon Kibben

Depending on the requirements of the application, there are arguments both for and against the use of (only) passive or passive/active alignment approaches. We will try to shed some light on the differences in methodology, requirements and results, and hopefully banish any urban myths.

October 28, 2020 – Wednesday 3pm (CET)

AssemblyLine / FiberLine
Stand-alone & In-line Systems / Dr. Gregory Flinn

A rundown of our fully automated, high-precision, fast-active align-&-attach assembly product lines for (integrated) photonic components and opto-electronic devices. We overview the technologies and capabilities they can provide, and give some insights as to their usage.

October 21, 2020 – Wednesday 3pm (CET)

ficonTEC Service
Photonics Assembly & Test / Dr. Gregory Flinn + Torsten Vahrenkamp

An overview of ficonTEC as a company, as a machine systems manufacturer, as a solutions provider for all things #photonics_assembly_and_test, as well as a brief discussion of trending topics and how ficonTEC is already set-up to cater to these application requirements.

The webinars take place Wednesdays at 3pm (CET).

For 2020 see weekly schedule and brief descriptions above.
For 2021, the webinars will take place every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, starting January 20, 2021. More details and topic descriptions to follow.
