i-Micronews published an interview with François Vieillard, poLight VP Marketing
& Sales. The company is planning to start volume production in Q1 next year, fabbing the MEMS actuator at Texas Instruments and assembling the lens unit at a major electronics assembly house in Asia. Multiple camera module customers in Japan,
Korea and Taiwan will then need several months to qualify their modules with the unit, and then phone makers will need another few months to qualify the modules in their phones.
