The New York State Photonics Board of Officers met recently to discuss the state’s continued commitment to AIM Photonics’ Test, Assembly, and Packaging (TAP) facility in Rochester, NY. As a result, the board approved a proposal for $27.5 million in previously committed New York State funding to invest $23 million in new equipment and tool upgrades to further enhance the TAP facility’s R&D capabilities and $4.5 million in operational support to amplify the consortium’s collaboration with regional universities. The specific recommendations are part of the state’s original $250 million commitment to AIM Photonics.
