AUBURN, N.Y. – Volpi, a world leader in optoelectronics with operations in the U.S. and Switzerland, has partnered with Netherlands-based TOPIC Embedded Systems, a leader in embedded intelligence, to expand its portfolio of optoelectronic measurement solutions and further advance its digital initiatives. The partnership enables Volpi to accelerate development of optical modules with embedded artificial intelligence, helping to improve patient lives, optimize instrument performance, and drive innovative new revenue-generating business models for customers. Volpi is the first and only optical module design, development, and manufacturing firm to offer optical modules with embedded intelligence, connectivity and cloud computing.
“We are very excited about this new partnership with TOPIC.
