EPIC Online Technology Meeting on VCSELs Technology and Applications
Online Event

VCSELs are becoming the dominant light source technology in different markets such as consumer electronics, automotive, illumination, aerospace, drones and robots. Currently we observe an amazing virtual loop where VCSELs, due to their stability, small size, simplicity and low cost of manufacturing and testing, are both widely used and finding new applications. Let’s discuss with the leading companies how is evolving the use of these devices, taking into account the vision and the requirements of the end-users as well the volume production challenges in terms of design, fabrication, and packaging.

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.
