Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with POET Technologies (TSX-V:PTK) Chairman and CEO, Suresh Venkatesan; President & General Manager, Vivek Rajgarhia, and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Thomas Mika.

Understanding the world of Photonics isn’t the easiest thing small cap investors have had to understand. In fact, it may be the very hardest thing they’ve ever had to understand. However, given the fact we are the very reason current photonics devices aren’t living up to snuff trying to keep up with our surfing, streaming, binging and zooming – you start to see why understanding photonics and POET Technologies could open up investors to a whole new world.

We went beyond the press release with POET management to discuss the “Industry’s First Flip-Chip DML Lasers” No, we didn’t understand the title at first either ….. but the management trio on the Zoom did a great job explaining it in terms that are both compelling yet understandable.

Before watching this video, here is some important background information.

Photonics are critical to the next phase of semiconductor development. Semiconductors are an essential component of every electronic device on the planet.

Photonic devices create, detect and manipulate light. Laser generated light is fundamental to sensing, computing, data and telecommunications, which require the fastest transfer of data possible.

In short, all the surfing, streaming, binging and zooming we do requires 2 things to happen:

1. Massive data centres filled with tens of thousands of servers.
2. Speed … and we mean lighting speed that requires lasers to transfer all that data fast enough for you not to complain about 2 second latency when searching for last minute Christmas gift ideas (We see you)

Examples of the the biggest trends sucking up all that power and speed in computing today:

Cloud Computing
Artificial Intelligence
5G and Edge

HERE IS THE PROBLEM

Making photonics devices that are reliable is expensive in terms of both capital and labor.

Cost declines have not kept up with Moore’s Law, with most photonics devices built one at a time – and multiple different components must be able to interconnect seamlessly without constant testing.

The Result? Integration of components at wafer-scale has not been fully implemented even by the largest companies working for the past 20 years ….. UNTIL NOW

POET has developed a unique, disruptive and differentiating new entry into photonics markets.

The POET Optical Interposer™ Platform – patented photonics integration platform that enables lower cost and higher performance across a wide range of applications

Today’s press release announcing the industry’s first flip-chip DML lasers might very well take POET to a whole new level.
