Case Study: Magic Leap

Jabil Optics works with companies from idea through to design, development, manufacturing and deployment. We are your complete optical solutions partner.

Our approach means we are visible, accessible and accountable to you and your product needs. Trust in our people, processes and equipment to give you faster time to market, increased yield and maximum precision. 

Project management doesn’t need to be complicated. With one point of contact and supply chain visibility, you always know how your project is progressing. 

A proven step-by-step management and leadership process means that everyone succeeds:

  1. Project kick-off. We assign the project manager and design team, establish the contact interfaces and define roles and responsibilities
  2. Concept. Research design ideas and solutions, sketching, whiteboarding, proof-of-concept, UX review and analysis.
  3. Design implementation. Designers, engineers and quality assurance collaborate on design and tooling.
  4. Design verification and process set-up. Design is complete, prototypes are built and with your approval the Jabil Optics team moves forward with the final development phases including design verification.
  5. Ramp support. Final testing and approvals, sample builds are completed.
  6. Mass production. Your custom optical solution is ready for manufacture and high-volume production.

We design custom camera modules and projection systems. Jabil Optics technologies are used in a range of applications including AR & VR, LiDAR, 3D sensors, advanced camera systems, and customized optical systems.

Our optical design team skills include:

  • Advanced Optical Design
  • Opto-Mechanical Design
  • Electrical Engineering for Hardware
  • Design for Manufacturing
  • Design for Test
  • Design for Excellence

At the core of everything we do is our commitment to innovation and designing optical solutions that are future-ready.

An agile and collaborative development process allows us to speed time from design through to development. This approach to project management allows us to prevent handoff delays and time spent on-boarding development experts.
