POET Ships First Optical Engine Sample

News

100G Transmit Optical Engine shipped to European optical systems company

Photonics company POET Technologies has shipped its first 100G Transmit (Tx) Optical Engine sample to a leading European optical systems company. The company also confirmed that additional samples will be delivered to several other interested companies over the next month.

The sample delivered supports a combined transmit and receive Optical Engine product, which has been developed for an innovative 400G transceiver application. The Alpha samples are said to demonstrate excellent margin to the transmit link budget at operating temperatures with excellent optical eye margins. Internal testing shows that only minor improvements are required for a Beta release that would meet all of the requirements for production. These changes have already been incorporated in the Beta designs, which have just been released to the mask shop for production.

“The importance of achieving this milestone cannot be over-emphasised,” said Suresh Venkatesan, chairman and CEO of POET. “For most prospective customers in this industry, ‘seeing is believing' is a dominant theme. In spite of 20 years of trying, no other company has been successful in developing a versatile hybrid integration platform. A number of customers and business partners will be taking delivery of samples now and in the coming months - as they gain a full understanding of the simplicity and versatility of the POET Optical Interposer platform, we believe it has the potential to become a new standard for packaging in the photonics industry. The shipment of samples constitutes a completion of over three years of technology and product development culminating in placing market viable products in customers hands.”

The company reported earlier that it will be demonstrating a 400G Transmit Engine with a silicon photonics-based modulator from SiluxTek, a 100G CWDM Transmitter, a 200G CWDM Receiver and other novel remote light source designs during the ICCSZ and CIOE conference in Shenzhen, China. These demonstrations cumulatively provide a glimpse into POET's product roadmap and capabilities.
