TORONTO, June 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – POET Technologies Inc. (“POET” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: PTK; OTCQX: POETF), the designer and developer of integrated optical engines for optical communications, computing and sensing markets, all based on the POET Optical Interposer â„¢, announces that samples of its 100G and 200G CWDM4 optical engines will be available in early July.

Powered by four DFB (Distributed Feedback) PAM4 CWDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) 28G and 28G flip-chip lasers, the POET optical engines include an integrated athermal multiplexer and demultiplexer, 28G detectors, monitor photodiodes and sensor pads. connection. Operating according to the MSA (Multi-Source Accord) standards for the QSFP28 module, the POET optical engines will be available in chipsets for transmit only, receive only, or in a combination of transmit and receive from a single multi engine. -chip less than 60 mm side.

Built on a high resistivity 8 inch silicon wafer with athermal low loss waveguides, POET optical engines feature passively aligned active devices and superior thermal management. These motors offer the best coupling efficiencies, including for fiber attachment units, and operate over a range of 500m to 10km at ambient operating temperatures of 0 ° C to 70 ° C.

Based on the new POET Optical Interposer platform, the 100G and 200G optical engines are fully fabricated at wafer scale, providing unmatched cost and size advantages. All engines are fully tested and run in before shipment. Super Photonics Xiamen, POET’s joint venture with Sanan IC, will manufacture the optical motors, with the ability to scale quickly for customers with high demands.

POET will also soon be offering 400G DR4 and FR4 optical transmission and reception engines. Samples of the receiving optical engine will be available in September. Samples of the transmission motor, based on high power CW (continuous wave) lasers and silicon photon modulators, will be available from the fourth quarter of 2021.

Live demonstrations of POET products are conducted by the company at the Virtual Exhibition at the Fiber Optic Conference (OFC) which runs Monday through Friday June 7-11, 2021.
