POET Technologies Inc. is the developer of an integrated photonics platform that will power the next wave of innovation in integrated circuits, by combining electronics and optics onto fewer devices or ultimately onto a single chip for massive improvements in size, power, speed and cost. The company’s current IP portfolio includes more than 65 patents granted and filed. Our definition of “integrated photonics” goes beyond the conventional approach to integration in the markets for optical data communication and other applications. We combine devices into a single package with a unique approach to guiding the light using integrated dielectric materials to eliminate costly “active” alignment and lower cost by utilizing proven, wafer-level packaging techniques. Our technology also creates the potential for a single, monolithic semiconductor chip that has all the elements needed to communicate data at the speed of light, but at the cost of copper.
Our technology is designed to create a platform or “photonic engine” that integrates functions that have previously never been integrated into the same device. By doing so, we believe we can capture the value associated with those discrete devices, such as lasers, detectors and multiplexers, disrupting the market for conventional solutions and creating new and expanded applications for our photonic engine. Our vision for the company is to become the global leader in integrated photonics solutions by deploying our photonic engine along with other breakthrough innovations into a wide variety of vertical market applications. The POET platform may provide the following advantages to the industry:
|Up to 10X power savings improvement over existing copper technologies (especially for high speed data communication links)|
|Up to 5X cost improvement over existing optical component solutions|
|Performance and Power of optical solutions at the price points competitive to that of copper|
We are a global provider of innovative solutions and designs, and a cost effective manufacturer of photonics products and services.
The company designs, manufactures, and delivers leading photonic optical light source products and solutions to the communications, medical, instrumentations, industrial, defense, and security industries.
