OPEL Technologies Inc. Announces New Laser by ODIS Subsidiary as Key Achievement in POET Monolithic Optoelectronic Platform

TORONTO, ONTARIO and STORRS, CONNECTICUT–(Marketwire – Dec 4, 2012) – OPEL Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:OPL)(OPELF) (“OPEL” or “the Company”) today announced that its U.S. affiliate, ODIS Inc. has successfully produced an integrated laser device, thereby achieving a key milestone in its Planar Optoelectronic Technology (“POET”) process, that enables high-performance devices fusing optical and electronic devices together on a single chip.

By allowing the production of components with increased speed, density, reliability, and lower costs, POET offers the semiconductor industry the ability to push Moore”s Law to the next cadence level, overcoming current silicon-based bottlenecks, and potentially changing the roadmap for a broad range of applications, such as smartphones, tablet and wearable computers.

After years of increasingly successful development, the fabrication of the first Vertical Cavity Laser (VCL) utilizing ODIS”s patented POET GaAs III-V technology is a significant success. Incremental progress over the years has led to what many consider to be the next phase of semiconductor development which is to surpass the capabilities of complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology for the next generation of high speed low power applications. It is now widely believed that CMOS technology advances have reached a saturation point.

The new laser serves as the basis for chip-to-chip interconnection, and complements numerous other optoelectronic devices already demonstrated by ODIS – including heterostructure field effect transistors (HFETs), optical thyristors, pulsed lasers, and super-radiant light emitting devices – all able to be monolithically fabricated via the POET process.

Enable IPC Issues Update on Its Third Consecutive Profitable Quarter, New RFID Products, the UWAMIC’s Annual Meeting and the Energy Summit 2012

VALENCIA, CA–(Marketwire – Sep 25, 2012) – Enable IPC Corporation ( PINKSHEETS : EIPC ) today issued an update to stockholders and interested parties regarding its quarterly financial report for the period ending September 30, 2012 discussing what the Company expects will be its third consecutive profitable quarter. The Company also provided updates on its nanoparticle solution for lithium ion battery cathodes, two new RFID-related products to be introduced in the coming months and the upcoming Energy Summit 2012.

Enable IPC Expects a Third Consecutive Profitable Quarter

As Enable IPC continues efforts to develop and commercialize its S/Cap® RFID tag product line, AAO nanopore templates, ultracapacitors and lithium ion battery cathode coating technologies, the Company expects to post its third consecutive profitable quarter, which will end September 30, 2012. Financial results are due to be announced formally on or before November 14, 2012. With continued product and technology development, the Company expects steady growth to continue.

NSF Program Update

After successfully completing a Phase I grant, Enable IPC’s subsidiary SolRayo was awarded a Phase II National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Technology Transfer grant in order to commercialize the Company’s nanoparticle solution which has been shown to enhance the performance of lithium ion batteries.

“It should be understood that, according to the NSF, only 3% of the proposals it receives during the initial cycle get funded at this level,” said Dr. Mark Daugherty, SolRayo’s CEO. “To me, this is not only a validation of the technology, but also of SolRayo’s and Enable’s proven ability to successfully commercialize products.”

Enable IPC to Release Additional RFID-Based Products

The Company expects to release two additional RFID-based products near the end of the year. While details will not be announced for some time, the Company has indicated that these new products will expand the Company’s reach into additional RFID-related markets.

University of Wisconsin’s Advanced Materials Consortium’s Annual Meeting

Enable IPC/SolRayo’s Director of Battery R&D, Dr. Walter Zeltner, will be speaking at the University of Wisconsin’s Advanced Materials Industrial Consortium’s (UWAMIC) annual meeting on October 11th. Dr. Zeltner’s lecture will be on “Energy Through Nanotechnology” and will be held on campus at the University of Wisconsin, Madison’s School of Engineering. SolRayo is a member of the UWAMIC which facilitates technology transfer, information exchange and interaction between the University and the Consortium’s commercial partners.

Energy Summit 2012

Enable IPC/SolRayo’s David Walker will be one of four panelists discussing the topic of “Ideas to Marketplace” at the Energy Summit 2012 at the Monona Terrace in Madison, Wisconsin on October 30th. Mr. Walker was invited to discuss the process of getting innovative energy ideas to the marketplace — from basic research to start-up businesses to established commercial entities. The discussion will center around what it takes to start and expand a company which intends to provide solutions for a more sustainable use of energy. Summit organizers consider SolRayo a perfect example of this process and have invited Mr. Walker to discuss his experiences in going from the lab to a growing company.

Since 2008, the Wisconsin Bioenergy Initiative (WBI) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has hosted this annual Energy Summit in order to engage and connect bioenergy stakeholders, the general public and students with research and development updates. Early bird registration ($39 for the general public) ends October 19th. Additional information about the Summit can be found here:

Many internet companies have the same M.O.: They develop a product that reaches a lot of users, undergo an IPO when the market is hot, and then focus on monetizing their users after the fact. Unfortunately, this strategy is still questionable for social media companies like Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB…

ODIS Inc. Progresses Toward a POET Technology Roadmap

(Marketwire – March 28, 2012) – OPEL Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:OPL)(OPELF.pk) and ODIS Inc. (collectively “OPEL” or “the Company”), a semiconductor device and process developer and, a leading global supplier of solar tracker systems and other solar related products, are pleased to announce significant progress made this quarter by ODIS Inc., a U.S. Company, regarding POET as it pertains to its advancements in Optical Interconnection of High Speed Circuits. ODIS’ recent Milestone achievements when successfully added to the POET platform under development, will make it possible for the first time to implement an optical interface as a single chip to connect existing CMOS processors.

The advancements are significant and ongoing steps in the POET technology development that have made it possible to produce a well defined military and commercial roadmap for POET.

ODIS’s optical interface chip will integrate a Laser, Optical Modulator, Modulator Driver, Detector, Receiver Amplifiers, SerDes, CDR and PLL circuits monolithically on a single chip. This breakthrough advancement utilizing III-V Gallium Arsenide technology is the first step in achieving a single device capable of interconnecting multiple processors by waveguide and/or fiber to transport ultra-high speed signals. This advancement substantially simplifies chip packaging while the optical interface chip bandwidth supports the very large data rates (>100Gb/s) for CMOS processor interconnect without the additional power otherwise required with conventional electrical i/o (input/output). The new roadmap will outline the process for speed-to-market devices, capital requirements and monetization opportunities in the commercial and defense technology markets.

The optical advancements that OPEL announces directly impact the generic optical interconnect application thus serving several of the markets that were researched in the Pellegrino & Associates valuation report dated March 2, 2011. More specifically, the valuation report provided an appraisal of POET intellectual property in the general computer market, the defense contractor market and the smartphone market. The Company will post a more in-depth summary of these recent POET accomplishments, market analysis and direction, on the OPEL Technologies and the ODIS Inc. websites.
