Jabil and Sypro Optics joined forces in 2008 to create Jabil's Optical Technology Group. Today, this dedicated design engineering team services a broad range of applications, including customized optoelectronics modules for Healthcare and Life Science, Digital Projection, Automotive and Lighting Management.

Jabil provides advanced optics design engineering services for gesture recognition, augmented reality and advanced sensor systems applications. Our scope includes collaborative design and design to specification for customer specific optical as well as opto-electronic modules. We focus on design services for mobile devices, automotive and healthcare.

Our customers enjoy our proven expertise in miniaturized projection engines and specialized camera systems. By developing long-term relationships with our customers and  collaborating on design, we create differentiated products. By combining design engineering services and manufacturing, we help customers grow revenue and margin.

Core Competencies

  • Optical, mechanical and electronic design
  • Joint development and design-in support
  • Prototyping and product industrialization
  • Quality management and prototype validation
  • Global project management
  • Illumination with solid state light sources (LED, Laser, OLED)
