The Fibre Multi-Object Spectrograph for Subaru Telescope (FMOS) is a near-infrared instrument with 400 fibres in a 30' filed of view at F/2 prime focus. To observe 400 objects simultaneously, we have developed a fibre positioner called "Echidna" using a tube piezo actuator. We have also developed two OH-airglow suppressed and refrigerated spectrographs. Each spectrograph has two spectral resolution modes: the low-resolution mode and the high-resolution mode. The low-resolution mode covers the complete wavelength range of 0.9 - 1.8 μm with one exposure, while the high-resolution mode requires four exposures at different camera positions to cover the full wavelength range. The first light was accomplished in May 2008. The science observations and the open-use observations begin in May 2010.
