OFC 2017 update: Imec demonstrates 896Gb/s silicon photonics transceiver

imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technology, presents a 896Gb/s silicon photonics transceiver of just a few mm2, targeting future Tb/s optical links. This achievement highlights the scalability of imec’s iSiPP50G silicon photonics platform, paving the way for next-generation short-reach optical interconnects.

The GeSi EAM and PD components are available for evaluation by companies and academia through imec’s silicon photonics prototyping service and the iSiPP50G multi-project wafer (MPW) service provided by Europractice. The iSiPP50G platform includes a validated passive and active device library and is supported by photonic design software solutions from multiple EDA vendors, including Synopsys, Luceda Photonics and Lumerical, in current or upcoming releases.
