PIC industry overview: design and test trends

Alvaro Jimenez

by Alvaro Jimenez, VLC Photonics

Photonic integration technology is developing fast, quickly moving from an emerging technology status to mass production level. Photonic integrated circuit (PIC) designs are getting more complex, and testing requirements are evolving fast for some application areas like transceivers, quantum, AI or LIDAR. This presentation will provide an overview of current trends from a design house perspective that has been involved in many customer projects and has collaborated with most of the current PIC ecosystem worldwide.

Optical elements such as light-pipes and lenses allow physical coupling of the PICs with the external environment. Optimal design is a critical part of the design for manufacturing (DFM) process and can deliver impact in terms of increasing both brightness of the source and signal to noise ratio of the optical sensor. One of the biggest challenges in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) is to design a system that continues interacting with the external environment without a loss of quality over time.
