SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 1, 2012--
NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN) (the “Company”), a leading
designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based
modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed
communications networks, today announced that an interview with Tim
Jenks, Chairman and CEO of the Company from the Harris & Harris Group
Meet the Portfolio Day is now available at http://stocknewsnow.com/.
The interview was recorded by SNN Live on March 13, 2012, at the Nasdaq
MarketSite. SNN is a micro-capitalization stock news source. The video

“We make chips that help deliver to you voice, data and video. If your
internet or mobile phone gives you a very clear signal so that you can
watch your choice of movie live in your pocket, then it is partially due
to the bandwidth that we provide,” Mr. Jenks begins. The Company’s
photonic integrated circuits are, “chips that work with light, as light.
Essentially, light goes into the chip, is manipulated by the chip, and
all the networks that provide voice, network data and video are really
optical. Keeping the light in the light domain is what our chips do,”
Mr. Jenks explains.
In the video, Mr. Jenks goes to describe the market for this technology
when he states: “Today, everyone is using more and more bandwidth…our
chips are helping you deliver your message every day in the optical
domain by wireless means or desktop means. The chips help make it
possible for the bandwidth that is being consumed. There’s an order of
magnitude increase happening almost annually in the amount of bandwidth
that is being used, and we have to keep up with that,” Mr. Jenks
concludes. For additional information, visit www.neophotonics.com.
