Innovations in Silicon Photonics

LONDON, July 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Datacenters and Telecommunication Applications Drive Opportunities for Advanced Photonic Systems

The silicon photonics (SiP) is an emerging industry with a high level of collaboration between key stakeholders. SiP technology integrates complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), three-dimensional (3D) integration, and fiber optic communication technologies.

The objective of the SiP technology is to leverage CMOS manufacturing capabilities to fabricate and manufacture photonic devices. The key to enable this is by using silicon as the medium. The innovations in SiP technology have evolved to address the needs of the data transmission market. High bandwidth requirement and high data rate for transmission are two key technical requirements that has driven the advancements in silicon photonics.

Key factors that are decreasing the potential for silicon photonics are the inability of the manufacturing process to meet the cost performance demand. Constraints in development in this sector are mainly due to lack of standardized tools and specifications, testng schemes, integration, and packaging techniques.

The industry participants are seeking technology development either through investment in research and development (R&D) or through acquisition strategies. Vertical integration is expected to drive the manufacturing and automation activities of large tier participants in the SiP industry. Major participants are expected to wield dominance across the SiP value chain through acquisitions. Optoelectronic product development is expected to be the major area to witness high level of research activities.
