Ultra Communications was founded in 2005 as a spin-out
of Peregrine Semiconductor. We are a team of engineers
that developed multi-Gbps, multi-channel transceivers
since the year 2000. We have talents covering all
aspects of photonic component development, manufacturing

UltraComm maintains a 2,000 sq. ft. class 1000 clean
room with ESD controls, including humidity. With an
automated 8” wafer test system, and automated fiber
optic module test station, UltraComm has photonic
assembly & test capabilities (50 GHz scopes, 5 Gbps
BERTs) on-site. UltraComm also maintains environmental
test chambers, including a EPIC thermal cycle/shock
camber for stressing optical modules through
qualification. In 2010, we added precision
flip-chip bond capability (FineTech
Semi-Automatic Fineplacer Lambda Die Bonder with 0.5
micron placement accuracy).
