EPIC Online Technology Meeting on VCSEL Manufacturing and Applications
Online Event

VCSELs are becoming the dominant light source technology in volume applications due to their stability, small size, simplicity and low cost of manufacturing and testing, finding application in multiple markets such as consumer, automotive, illumination, aerospace, drones and robots. In this meeting, the companies participating will discuss the use of VCSELs for these different applications, taking into account the vision of the end-users of this technology about current and future requirements for new VCSEL developments.

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.
