The vision of iQonic is the development of a holistic framework applicable both to new and existing manufacturing lines of optoelectronic components to achieve flexibility, zero-defect production, and sustainability. iQonic covers the design of new optoelectrical components and their optimised process chain, their assembly process as well as their disassembly and reintroduction into the value chain. Shadow’s hardware will be optimised to be able to manufacture optoelectronic components at much larger quantities. We aim to demonstrate iQonic technologies in 4 demo sites covering a wide range of products and processes.
