EMCORE Corp., an Albuquerque, N.M.-headquartered provider of semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the broadband, fiber-optic, satellite and terrestrial solar power markets, says it has been awarded a follow-on production order of $39 million for additional solar cell receiver assemblies.
These receivers are to be deployed in Green and Gold Energy's SunCube CPV systems through its world-wide licensees. Additionally, EMCORE has received purchase orders from several other leading CPV system integrators for CPV receiver assemblies. The current backlog for this product line has increased to approximately $86 million.
Production of CPV receiver assemblies has commenced at EMCORE's high-volume manufacturing line located in Albuquerque, the company adds.
