POET Technologies designs, develops, manufactures and sells both discrete and integrated opto-electronic solutions for the sensing, data communications and telecommunications markets. In addition to manufacturing a range of Indium Phosphide (InP)-based light sources, POET has developed and is marketing its proprietary POET Optical InterposerTM platform. The POET Optical Interposer utilizes a novel dielectric waveguide technology that allows the integration of electronic and photonic devices into a single multi-chip module. By applying advanced wafer-level semiconductor manufacturing techniques and novel packaging methods, POET's "photonics in a package" eliminates costly components, assembly and testing methods employed in conventional photonics solutions. In addition to lowering costs compared to conventional devices, POET’s Optical Interposer provides a flexible and scalable platform for a variety of photonics applications ranging from data centers to consumer products.
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|
