Smiths Interconnect has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Reflex Photonics, Inc.

Founded in 2002 in Montreal, Canada, Reflex is a recognised global leader in rugged high-reliability optical transceiver modules for space, defence, aerospace, and industrial applications. Reflex optical transceivers deliver high signal density and ultra-fast speeds for low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) solutions.

Reflex products are mainly used in harsh environment advanced systems such as AESA radars, high-performance computers, satellites, automotive applications, in-flight entertainment, and high-resolution cameras.

Reflex complements Smiths Interconnect’s product offering with the addition of a core fibre optic capability that will help address the needs arising from high speed data transmission in market segments requiring high reliability. Reflex’s products, patents, and references will provide significant differentiation to Smiths Interconnect, supporting the company’s ambition to be partner of choice for innovative and high-speed connectivity solutions for demanding applications. In addition, Reflex’s location in Canada will open this key geographical market to Smiths Interconnect.

Smiths Interconnect president, Karen Bomba said: "We are pleased to welcome Reflex to the Smiths Interconnect family of technology brands. We are a leading supplier of technically differentiated components that are critical to our customers’ products and operations; Reflex adds leading ruggedised and radiation-resistant transceiver technology to our offering, strengthening our presence and positioning in harsh environment fibre optic end applications.”
