Packaging and Assembly of PICs, challenges & solutions

Photonics is the key enabling technology engine needed to keep the globe communicating and connected in the 21st century. The integration of optical components and functions into large-scale photonic integrated circuits (PIC) will result in miniaturisation and decrease of costprice, which will lead to more applications. It’s the most energy efficient technology to scale up all these services.

Packaging and assembly technologies though are crucial to make devices available for high-volume and low-cost applications. This includes heterogeneous integration: the dense integration of compound semiconductor photonics and silicon microelectronics. It allows for significant reductions in system size, weight and power, while simultaneously yielding performance improvements and new functionality.

This edition of the conference has its focus on packaging and assembly with the following topics:

  • Materials & processes for Photonics Assembly: challenges & solutions
  • Equipment for Photonics Assembly: challenges & solutions

The conference will take place in hybrid format, online and physical, at Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

At the end of the conference attendees have a better insight in challenges & solutions regarding packaging and assembly of PICs.

Chip Integration Technology Center (CITC) labtour
Interested to see how CITC can provide added value using its tools & capabilities? Join us in the CITC labtour and get insight in what facilities we have in the domain of packaging assembly technologies like high precision dispensing, automated die pick up and die attach, wirebonding and temperature profile curing. Combining these enables us to do both fast prototyping for proof of principle samples and to test and evaluate the quality of the assembly process.
The labtour will take place after the conference has ended. Make sure to select the labtour when you register for the conference (only for the live edition.
