global investment firm Marlin Equity Partners has unveiled silicon photonics technology company Elenion Technologies, Inc. , the company said.
The company, which has been operating in stealth mode since 2014, was originally incubated alongside another Marlin-owned company, Coriant, a global supplier of packet optical networking and data center interconnect solutions.
Elenion continues as a separate business led by its own executive team and experts in silicon photonics, lasers, electronics and advanced packaging.
Silicon photonics is an emerging technology that reduces the cost and increases the performance of optical communications by repurposing the silicon microelectronics ecosystem to build silicon chips that can manipulate light as well as electrical signals.
Marlin Equity Partners is focused on providing corporate parents, shareholders and other stakeholders with tailored solutions that meet their business and liquidity needs.
