The System architect’s view on PICs

subscribe to our newsletter

While the focus of the PIC (Photonic Integrated Circuits) industry is on the development and production of PICs, it is essential to think about the system architecture of the complete product in which the PIC will be embedded, since in the end it is about the application!

The PIC will be part of a multi-disciplinary system. The system architect is in the lead, who has to  translate the requirements of the many stakeholders into a system architecture blueprint, which encompasses not only the application but also the business context, the user context, technological context and preceding architectures.

The System Architect helps the development team to find its way in a rather complex, dynamic,  uncertain  and multidisciplinary world.
