    Ams Expands Singapore Manufacturing Capacity

ams expands its manufacturing operations in Singapore at JTC nanoSpace @ Tampines. ams will operate a fully automated clean room with state-of-the-art filter deposition technology for high-precision, best-in-class micro-optic sensors. Alongside this, ams will also invest in a new VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers) R&D and manufacturing line.

Major contributor

ams is expecting to invest around $200M over the next three years in manufacturing in Tampines. The investment includes the clean room equipment and a new facility for VCSEL and sensor manufacturing at JTC nanoSpace @ Tampines. Together with the expansion in Ang Mo Kio, which was announced earlier this year, ams will be a major contributor to both the electronics and precision engineering industries in Singapore.

Continued expansion in Singapore

ams’ continued expansion in Singapore is the direct result of customer volume requirements for the company’s advanced sensor solutions and high-end optical packaging. At JTC nanoSpace @ Tampines, ams will manufacture micro-optic sensors for state-of-the-art mobile applications. This new facility complements the capacity at Ang Mo Kio and the company’s manufacturing operations in Austria, as well as manufacturing partnerships with major contract manufacturers around the world. 

Leading-edge semiconductor-related manufacturing activities

JTC nanoSpace @ Tampines is purpose-built to meet the rigorous requirements of leading-edge semiconductor-related manufacturing activities. At an official opening ceremony, members of ams’ Management Board hosted Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry), Mr. S. Iswaran, for a tour of the company’s new JTC nanoSpace @ Tampines operations.

ams sensor solutions

Leading equipment manufacturers around the globe rely on ams’ sensors to capture and analyze light, color, images, and sound, to increase precision and safety, and to measure miniscule changes in position, environmental and medical parameters. ams sensor solutions are at the heart of products and technologies that define the world today, including smartphones and mobile devices, smart homes/buildings, industrial automation and connected vehicles, and many of the devices that compromise the digital transformation.
