Miniaturization, higher performance, unaffected by vibrations, reduced footprint and heat generated are some of the clear benefits of adopting Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) for developing new products. This new generation of PIC-based devices will meet the requirements for the commercialization of new exciting applications such as point-of-care devices, miniaturized LIDAR, low-power beyond 400G transceivers and small fiber sensor interrogators for structural monitoring. In this meeting, we will explore all these emerging applications together with companies at all the different levels of the supply chain for PICs that will provide the technology to satisfy the needs of the end-users and system integrators.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube

These online technology meetings take place in Zoom with a limited group of people. If you would like to attend the meeting, please register below. There are limited seats and we allow only one person per company, but all our online technology meetings can be viewed LIVE on YouTube or be viewed afterwards if you have missed it.
