TORONTO, June 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — POET Technologies Inc. (“POET” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: PTK; NASDAQ: POET), the designer and developer of POET Optical Interposer™ and Photonic Integrated Circuits ( PIC) for the data center and telecommunications markets, today announced the availability of its 400G FR4 and 800G (2x400G FR4) receive (RX) optical engines based on the POET optical interposer, a unique hybrid integration photonic conditioning.

The company has shipped samples to several major customers and expects the 400G FR4 receive optical engine to be in production at Super Photonics, its joint venture with Sanan IC, by the end of Q3 2022. reception 400G FR4 integrates four photodetectors of 56 Gigabauds each. operating at a speed of 100 Gigabits/second with a low-loss Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG)-based demultiplexer that is monolithically integrated on the optical interposer. A single-mode optical fiber with LC connector is attached to the optical engine for seamless integration into a 400GBASE-FR4 transceiver module.

“We are excited to announce the completion of design, verification testing and the availability of pre-production parts for customers to take advantage of our highly integrated optical engines to build 400G FR4 and 800G transceivers ( 2x400G FR4),” said Vivek Rajgarhia, President. from POET Technologies. “Our small form factor and easy-to-integrate optical engine enable cost-effective and scalable solutions for cloud data centers. Customers can integrate a single receive engine or dual engines in a QSFP-DD or OSFP pluggable transceiver form factor to achieve a 400GBASE-FR4 or 800G (2x400GBASE-FR4) solution. The 400G sample receipt shipment marks an important milestone for the company as we continue to bring multiple products to market and align them with customer needs.

400G FR4 Receive Optical Engine Key Features:

  • Four 56 Gigabaud photodetectors each operating at a speed of 100 Gigabits/second, flip-chip on the optical interposer and passively coupled to vertical mirrors integrated in the optical interposer;
  • A low-loss Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG)-based four-wavelength demultiplexer that is polarization-independent, temperature-independent, and is monolithically integrated into the optical waveguide layer of the optical interposer ;
  • A small form factor (3.8mm x 10mm), which enables an 800G optical engine in a 2x400G configuration in QSFP-DD800 and OSFP optical transceiver modules; and
  • LC connector single-mode fiber attached to the optical engine.
