OPEL Technologies Inc. (formerly known as OPEL Solar (International) Inc.), is a company with Headquarters in Shelton CT USA, Canada office in Toronto Ontario and an Office located in Brussels Belgium, for Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and an Asia connection thru a Joint Venture.
 
Through ODIS, OPEL Defense Integrated Systems Inc. the Company designs infrared sensor type products for military, industrial and commercial applications. ODIS Inc. with its R&D facilities located on the campus of the University of Connecticut, has developed and proven a new Optoelectronics semiconductor process called POET (Planar OptoElectronic Technology), which is uniquely capable of producing monolithic IC solutions to meet the emerging needs of both the Military  and Commercial markets. Which requires the need for high volume, rapidly growing optoelectronics, wireless and sensors which demand greater bandwidth, increase processing power and integration, with lower power dissipation while being cost effective.
 
The Company, through its subsidiary, Opel Inc., is engaged in the development and marketing of concentrating solar panels, single and dual axis solar tracking systems for commercial applications, and the development of a gallium arsenide microchip for numerous applications, including solar cells. The Company designs, manufactures and markets high performance photovoltaic concentrating (HCPV) panels to transform solar energy into electricity for worldwide application. In addition, it manufactures and markets a line of single and dual axis solar trackers. These tracker systems can be used to mount all types of solar panels, (silicon, thin film, and HCPV) on ground mounted arrays or roof mounted systems.
 
Opel was founded in December 2000. It received its first two government contract awards in 2001, for an aggregate of US$1.07 million. During 2001, Opel demonstrated its first thyristor operation (electrical only) and obtained two patents. Since then, Opel has been granted a total of $5,230,000 in government contracts. Opel has filed a total of 50 patents of which 36 have been granted to date. The Company was incorporated in the Province of Ontario and continued in the Province of New Brunswick on January 30, 2007. On September 26, 2006, the shareholders of the Company approved a capital transaction agreement with Opel Inc. ("Opel") a private, technology company, incorporated under the laws of Delaware. The capital transaction was accounted for as a reverse take over ("RTO"). On June 8, 2007, the Company completed a private placement of US$10.7 million, which exceededthe requirements of liquidity for listing on the Toronto Venture Exchange, "TSXV". Subsequently,on June  26, 2007, the Company's shares began trading under the symbol "OPL" on the TSXV. OPEL Technologies Inc. also trades on the OTC as OPELF & on the Alpha exchange as OPL.

ODIS, Inc. - Business Overview:



ODIS Inc. (OPEL Defense Iintegrated Systems Inc.) with its R&D facilities located on the campus of the University of Connecticut
has developed and proven a new Optoelectronics semiconductor process based on a new Group III-V materials system.
This process POET (Planar OptoElectronic Technology) is uniquely capable of producing monolithic IC solutions to meet the
emerging needs of both the Military and Commercial markets, POET allows ODIS to produce ICs with dense packing of active optical elements together with packing of high-performance electronic elements at a density similar to that of silicon.  These monolithic implementations have a large advantage over today's hybrid-based solutions in density, reliability, and power dissipation, at a cost much lower than the best available competitors. ODIS will produce a market dislocation by providing  monolithic IC components for these high volume high-performance markets with high-reliability, smaller, lower-power  components at disruptively lower prices. POET is differentiated from competing semiconductor processes, silicon, gallium arsenide, or indium phosphide by its more comprehensive set of elemental capabilities, and its ability to integrate them. POET can integrate lasers, modulators, photoreceivers, passive optics and high-speed, low-power electronics in monolithically-fabricated die: "no other existing process can do so".
This gives ODIS ICs their much lower cost structure, power savings and increased reliability.

    

Patent and Trade Secret Protection on POET, plus ODIS's specific design knowledge using POET elements give ODIS a large, defensible barrier to competition.

ODIS, INC.  INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY APPRAISAL SERVICES REPORT:
http://opelinc.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Redacted-ODIS-Intellectual-Property-Appraisal-Report.pdf


ODIS is an early-stage technology company that is developing gallium arsenide based processes and semiconductor microchip products having several potential major market applications: solar concentrator cells and panels for use in power grid applications and commercial rooftops, infrared sensor arrays for security monitoring and imaging along with the unique combination of optical (lasers), servers and routers, and electronic control circuits  on the same microchip for telecommunication applications such as Fiber To The Home ("FTTH").
 
The use of gallium arsenide as the key material in Opel's solar cell development will permit the use of these cells under solar concentration with greatly increased output compared to flat plate solar collector designs done in silicon, as presently used. Opel has been awarded several US Department of Defense projects since 2000. These have been and continue today to support Opel's Planar Opto-Electronic Technology ("POET") process development, infrared sensing technology, optical/laser development and the combination of electronic circuits and lasers on the same microchip. Opel remains active in this area with several recent projects underway with the US Department of Defense.
 
The solar cell development is based on the use of gallium arsenide chips being designed by OPEL which when ready, will be processed by the Canadian Photonics Fabrication Center ("CPFC") which is a part of the Canadian National Research Centre in Ottawa, Canada. The following development phase of an Opel solar cell multi-junction development will be based on a variation of Opel's POET technology after the transfer is  complete from Opel's University of Connecticut ("UCONN") Laboratory to a qualified fabrication source such as CPFC in Ottawa or BAE Systems. This variation will include an adjusted transistor design from the present POET process.

ODIS's new and patented semiconductor fabrication process, POET is based on a unique Group III-V materials structure.
The heart of POET is a unique and patented Group III-V materials system that supports monolithic fabrication of IC's containing active and passive optical elements, together with high-performance analog and digital elements. For the first time an economical integration of many optical devices together with dense, high-speed analog and high-speed, low-power digital elements are possible in monolithic ICs. POET allows ODIS to fundamentally alter the landscape for a broad range of applications by offering components with dramatically lowered cost together with increased speed, density, and reliability.
 
A coming major force in the $515 Billion Military (FY2009 Dept. of Defense Budget) and $300+ Billion  by 2010 (reported by Business Wire Inc.) Commercial Semiconductor Industries is Optoelectronics which  meets the market need for high volume, rapidly growing optoelectronics, wireless and sensor market  segments which demand greater bandwidth, increase processing power and integration, with lower power dissipation while being cost effective. These markets are established, but are at a threshold where a new technology or technical dislocation is needed. Lower-priced implementations will permit these markets to achieve their potential volumes along with additional applications being addressed. Products for these emerging markets are not served by silicon components, owing to the physical limitations of silicon. Solutions currently are based on high-cost hybrid manufacturing technology using Silicon Germanium (SiGe), Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), or Indium Phosphide (InP) technologies: a new solution is needed.

Market Conditions & Drivers:
 
Progress in the electronics industry over the past four decades has both driven and been driven by our ability to create and serve markets with faster, cheaper, and smaller monolithic integrated circuits. Each product advance in turn becomes the driver for the next wave of IC technology. Many new generations of IC technology from the earliest small-scale bipolar devices with 4 transistors through 0.09-micron feature size CMOS circuits with nearly 1-billion gate density have continually increased the ICs capabilities and thus those of the products in which they serve. Advances in PCs, communications, and many consumer devices have been powered by this continual development in semiconductor technology. Today however, this paradigm is falling short. Particularly in the arenas of optoelectronics and very high speed mixed-signal circuits silicon ICs will not serve, and no good monolithic (single-chip) technology exists. Today's implementations in these markets are not benefiting from the cost savings of integrated technologies, but rather are based on hybrid or multi-component approaches.

In the hybrid approach multiple individual semiconductor components of multiple technologies are interconnected to form circuits satisfying the needs of a particular application. This approach is used successfully to bring solutions to limited-size markets, particularly those in which performance is at a premium, but at a higher price. However, as the need for high-speed services spreads, and higher-volume markets emerge, this hybrid approach to implementation cannot produce competitive solutions. While hybrid technology will serve for limited-size markets, those able to tolerate higher price tags, it cannot serve truly large, competitive markets. A dislocation in technology is needed. Today's semiconductor industry is typically seen as being dominated by silicon products, with the silicon IC industry then being divided into the PC/memory segment and the fabless IC segment. The fabless business segment is then split into a triad of separate industries providing: design tools, IC designs, and IC fabrication, all operating independently but synergistically. While this is a good description of the silicon portion of the semiconductor industry, it is not a model of the whole semiconductor industry. Left unaddressed is a multi-billion dollar cost-sensitive market for analog, mixed-signal, RF, and optical products that is currently served by a combination of non-silicon technologies: Si-Ge (silicon germanium), GaAs (Gallium Arsenide), InP (Indium Phosphide), and GaN (Gallium Nitride).

ODIS Technology:
 
ODIS's new and patented semiconductor fabrication process, POET is based on a unique Group III-V materials structure. The heart of POET is a unique and patented Group III-V materials system that supports monolithic fabrication of IC's containing active & passive optical elements, together with high  performance analog and digital elements. For the first time an economical integration of many optical devices together with dense, high-speed analog and high-speed, low-power digital elements are possible in monolithic IC's.
 
The processing of these wafers into products is done using a series of steps similar to those used in silicon processing, and is scalable to deep submicron feature sizes. POET device yield will thus be similar to that of silicon, much higher than that characteristic of many current III-V processes. This gives ODIS a  technology basis that is uniquely powerful, that is economical to produce, and that is extensible in generations. POET is a uniquely-powerful mixed-signal process, integrating high-performance analog and digital electronics with high-performance active optical elements. ODIS ICs integrate a dense mix of active optical elements and optical waveguides together with logic and mixed-signal elements on a single chip, thus manufactured in one serial process. Capitalizing on POET capabilities, ODIS offers product solutions into the communications, optoelectronic, RF/wireless, sensor, and imaging markets. POET allows ODIS to fundamentally alter the landscape for a broad range of applications by offering  components with dramatically lowered cost together with increased speed, density, and reliability.

ODIS Inc. Progresses Toward a POET Technology Roadmap

Addressable Target Markets.

Military:
 
POET's technology platform for optoelectronic integration exploits the optoelectronic and electronic behaviors of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) semiconductor material. One of the benefits of this material, from a space electronics perspective, is that GaAs is significantly less susceptible to x-ray and gamma-ray total  integrated dose (TID) radiation. GaAs is the long-standing choice for high-frequency (e.g. RF) devices and circuits, although, GaAs digital devices do not provide the performance that Metal Oxide  Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor, (MOSFET) devices provide.
 
Important to military applications are the electronic devices that can be integrated into the POET architecture including both complementary heterostructure field effect transistors and complementary heterojunction bipolar transistors. These transistors enable both analog and digital functions in POET  hybrid optoelectronic devices. Important to the military is ODIS's ability to integrate digital, RF, and optical technologies in a single device makes POET an important, high-performance capability that satisfies documented needs for multiple space systems and all Military Departments and Agency Tech Areas.

    

Commercial:
 
Progress in the commercial electronics industry over the past four decades has both driven and been driven by our ability to create and serve markets with faster, cheaper, and smaller monolithic integrated circuits. Each product advance in turn becomes the driver for the next wave of IC technology. Many new generations of IC technology from the earliest small-scale bipolar devices with 4 transistors through 0.09-micron feature size CMOS circuits with nearly 1-billion gate density have continually increased the IC's capabilities and thus those of the products in which they serve. Advances in PCs, communications, and many consumer devices have been powered by this continual development in semiconductor technology. Today however, this paradigm is falling short. Particularly in the arenas of optoelectronics and very high speed mixed-signal circuits silicon ICs will not serve, and no good monolithic technology exists. A recent Electronic News Article stated that the optoelectronics market is forecast to surpass the discrete
semiconductor market and become the second largest segment in the semiconductor industry behind integrated circuits,
according to a report published by industry researcher IC Insights.

Monetizing GaAs process, see also the Pellegrino Valuation Report:
 
On the defense side of the business, ODIS is working on a high-electron mobility transistor (HEMT) design that has now been validated by project partner BAE Systems, and is looking at how to monetize a decade-long development effort on POET led by Geoffrey Taylor, ODIS' chief scientist. Although the initial POET work has focused on transistors, including complementary n-channel and p-channel implementation (enabling a digital GaAs process technology analogous to silicon CMOS), the fabrication process is also said to be highly suited to optical applications. Those could include infrared sensing, single-chip designs combining lasers with electronic control, and the production of high-power beams from arrays of closely spaced lasers.  As an example, ODIS has verified a strained-InGaAs quantum well VCSEL design, and has also demonstrated quantum dot structures operating at 1330 nm, while Taylor believes that with a slight adjustment to the process a 1550 nm design can be produced. That has been done by other organizations - notably QD Laser in Japan, which will manufacture around 1 million chips in 2011, according to O + P plenary speaker Yasuhiko Arakawa - but the difference with POET is that the laser could be integrated with a range of other active and passive devices in the form of an optoelectronic integrated circuit.
 
Although the approach sounds similar to that of the InP-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs) produced by the California company Infinera, a key difference is that GaAs is a much more mature semiconductor material. Taylor adds that POET combines GaAs transistor and optoelectronic functionality, unlike typical PIC processes.  Thus far, ODIS's key customer has been the US Air Force, but now the company is looking towards developing commercial applications. High-speed optical interconnects would be one potential application area for the technology, since all of the optoelectronic and digital circuitry could potentially be integrated within the same chip architecture. ODIS was actively promoting the potential of the integrated technology platform at the SPIE Optics + Photonics event in late August through two technical presentations, focused on modulator designs and optoelectronic switching.
