4/6/00 E-TEK Dynamics Inc. (San Jose, CA) has announced a multi-year supply agreement with ONI Systems Corp. (San Jose, CA) to supply fiber-optic communications subsystems for ONI's ONLINE product family. E-TEK's new manufacturing operation specializing in integrated modules and subsystems moved from initial design to delivery of first shipments in two months to secure the agreement.

Under the agreement, E-TEK will provide four subsystems for ONI's ONLINE9000 and 7000 optical hardware platforms engineered for the metro and access markets. E-TEK's subsystems will provide wideband and dense wavelength-division multiplexing, restoration, and power-monitoring capabilities.

According to the company, E-TEK anticipated the trend toward outsourcing by forming a dedicated operation for the design and manufacture of integrated modules and subsystems in mid-1999. This operation now includes 64,000 square feet of electrostatic-discharge-protected manufacturing.
