Semicoa moves into the medical and defense markets
Semicoa Optoelectronics (Costa Mesa, CA), a high-precision silicon photodiode manufacturer, is undergoing a major shift in its customer focus. Moving away from its current original-equipment-manufacturer (OEM) base, it will be targeting military and medical markets. Considering the company`s 26-year manufacturing track record, high-quality testing procedures, and rigid adherence to design specifications, Semicoa officials expect it to have a competitive edge in its new market. The company reported roughly $6 million in sales last year, $1 million of which came from the optoelectronics division.
