QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSE: EXF) announced today the introduction of the NanoRobot Developer System, a photonics alignment system configured for component development. The newest addition to EXFO’s NanoRobot line enables manufacturers of complex photonics components to develop products with the same technology used during production for assembly and alignment. Users can go from product development to full manufacturing using the same software routines and multiple hardware configurations. This minimizes time to volume, a critical factor for component manufacturers. The Developer System consists of NanoRobot hardware, powerful nanoalignment software and a vision system. The NanoRobot hardware incorporates patented Inchworm® motor technology to provide unprecedented nanoalignment performance. The software is the most advanced in the industry for nanoalignment and features a library of script-based routines that are ready to use from the start. The vision system includes an adjustable mounting system. Test and measurement capabilities are easily added from EXFO’s broad range of high-performance products. “The new NanoRobot Developer System allows manufacturers of photonics components to reduce their costs because they can quickly move from high-end R&D to high-volume manufacturing with the same automated solution,” said David Farrell, President of Burleigh Instruments, a wholly owned subsidiary of EXFO. “Our NanoRobot Developer System offers the superior performance component manufacturers expect from EXFO nanoalignment products and simplifies transfer of motion, software and vision technology from the lab to the manufacturing floor." EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
