EMCORE designs, manufactures and markets a broad portfolio of compound semiconductor-based products for the telecom, broadband, satellite, video transport, defense & homeland security and solar power markets. EMCORE has two operating segments: Fiber Optics and Solar Photovoltaics.
Our Fiber Optics segment offers optical components, subsystems and systems that enable the transmission of video, voice and data over high-capacity fiber optic cables for high-speed telecommunications, cable television and fiber-to-the-premises networks. Our products enable information that is encoded on light signals to be transmitted, routed (switched) and received in communication networks.
Our Solar Photovoltaics segment provides products for both satellite and terrestrial applications. For satellite applications, we offer high efficiency Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) solar cells, Covered Interconnect Cells (CICs) and fully-integrated solar panels. For terrestrial applications, we have adapted our high-efficiency GaAs solar cells for use in solar concentrator systems. Our products provide our customers with compelling cost and performance advantages over traditional silicon-based solutions. These include higher solar cell efficiency, allowing for greater conversion of light into electricity in solar power systems.
EMCORE's target customers include large global telecommunications equipment and service providers, satellite and cable television equipment and service providers, broadcast entities, professional AV suppliers, systems integrators, military and government contractors, aerospace companies, space satellite manufacturers and other leading electronics, communications and solar industry firms.
