POET Technologies to Feature 800G Optical Transceivers at CIOE 2023

Aug 30, 2023

Toronto, Ontario and Shenzhen, China, August 30, 2023 -- POET Technologies Inc. (POET” or the Company”) (TSX Venture: PTK; NASDAQ: POET), the designer and developer of the POET Optical Interposer™ and Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) for the data center, telecommunication and artificial intelligence markets, today announced that it will show live demonstrations of end-to-end optical solutions for 800G, 400G, and 200G optical transceivers using its highly integrated optical engines at the China International Optoelectronics Expo (CIOE) in Shenzhen from September 6-8 in Booth #11C63.

In cooperation with one of the Company’s lead customers, Luxshare-ICT (SZ: 002475), POET along with its joint venture partner, Super Photonics Xiamen (SPX), will showcase a live demonstration of the performance of Luxshare's 800G OSFP transceiver that incorporates POET’s 800G Rx optical engine.  POET and SPX will present additional live demonstrations of optical engines for 800G, 400G, and 200G transceivers operating over a wide temperature range and 2km to 10km of single mode fiber transmission. The demonstrations of linked optical engines on both the transmit and receive ends of the fiber highlight the end-to-end performance and product readiness of POET’s optical engines and allow customers to experience the simplicity and compact design of the products.

POET will also present a live demonstration of its own prototype 400G transceiver module in a QSFP-DD package, complete with a POET Infinity chiplet, a 400G Rx optical engine with integrated TIA, a Digital Signal Processor (DSP), TEC controller, fiber attach and housing [see accompanying photo]. Also on display will be a mechanical sample of POET’s own 800G transceiver module with two POET Infinity™ chiplets, an 800G Rx optical engine with integrated TIA, and an 800G DSP in a QSFP-DD package, scalable to 1.6T in an OSFP package.  

“We are delighted to showcase the Luxshare transceiver module and to demonstrate the  end-to-end performance of our solutions at CIOE,” said Dr. Mo Jinyu, SVP/GM of POET Asia. “We are already seeing significant customer interest to test and use our engines in transceivers from 100G to 800G  and even 1.6T speeds. The live demos at CIOE will help further boost customer confidence in our one-of-a-kind approach to photonics integration, the superior, real-time performance of our optical engines and reliability of POET’s products that are assembled and sold in China by SPX.”

Members of the engineering team and the executive management team from POET and SPX will be available to meet with customers, journalists, and industry analysts during CIOE 2023. Those who wish to request a meeting with the Company should send an email to [email protected] or [email protected]

Dr. Mo will also be speaking about POET’s products and innovations at the ICCSZ Conference on September 5.
