Business Development, production and production management of optical semiconductors, optical devices and semiconductor-composite devices (photonics products)

Dexerials Group will support DXPS in developing and providing solutions essential to the evolution of technologies in the photonics domain, aiming to increase efficiency in society. In so doing, the Group will help build a sustainable society, while aiming to achieve continuous growth and higher corporate value.
DXPS will develop and manufacture*2 microdevices and optical semiconductor device products that have been operated by DXPC and Kyoto Semiconductor. Dexerials will sell them to customers as its photonics products.
Dexerials and Kyoto Semiconductor will participate as an exhibitor at the OFC 2024 trade show that will take place at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego in the United States from Tuesday, March 26 to Thursday, March 28. We cordially invite visitors to the exhibition to drop by our booth.

Comment from Kazuya Hayashibe, Representative Director and President (planned), DXPS

The Dexerials Group has been effectively combining technologies with the knowledge possessed by its human resources to offer materials and solutions indispensable to electronics and automobiles, aiming to link them to the evolution of digital technologies.
In the future, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of things (IoT), next-generation communication and other new technologies will have increasing opportunities to play significant roles in boosting the efficiency of society for solving social issues. It is hence anticipated that optical semiconductors and the photonics solutions that support them will also have greater roles to play.
DXPS will lead the Dexerials Group’s business growth in the photonics domain. It will combine the optical semiconductor technologies cultivated by Kyoto Semiconductor, one of its predecessors, with the Dexerials Group’s technologies of controlling light and electricity to create unprecedented photonics solutions and to help resolve social issues. This will be the reason for its existence and it will tackle its work with a strong determination.
 Dexerials and Kyoto Semiconductor will showcase their products and present the integrated company, DXPS, in their booth at the OFC 2024 exhibition that will start on March 26 in San Diego in the United States. We cordially invite visitors to the exhibition to drop by our booth. We look forward to seeing you at San Diego.
