Sharing PIC design innovation: bridging open source and business with Nazca Design – Presented by Ronald Broeke, Bright Photonics, at the Photonic Integration Conference 2018, which will take place on October 2, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
There has been a strong and long request in the PIC design community for better PIC design layout tooling. We believe that the answer is Nazca Design. Nazca puts design experience, efficiency and quality in the first place in stead of marketing and market share. Nazca is an open source PIC design platform that stimulates innovation by making PIC design accessible for everyone and making PIC design business possible for everyone at the same time. How is this possible…?
What drives you?
A lack of better solutions
What are the three things you would take with you on a deserted Island?
Bear Grylls, a space elevator and a two parachutes
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Long and short term: PICs
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
The invisible but irreversible kind.
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Beyond PICs: a lack of interest in science and critical thinking, especially among educated people.
What do you hope people to learn from your presentation?
People have the freedom to professionally design PICs using open source solutions and share their result for free or for a fee.

About Photonic Integration Conference 2018
The 4th edition of the Photonic Integration Conference will take place on October 2, 2018, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands, during Photonics Applications Week.
This edition will focus on business models for applying photonic integration, cases of photonic integration in optical sensing, lighting & energy, IT and telecom – current situation and future prospects.
Photonics is the key enabling technology engine needed to keep the globe communicating and connected in the 21st century. It provides the bandwidth, speed, reach and flexibility needed to run exciting new applications that everyone knows – healthcare & life sciences, internet of things, M2M, social media, big data, datacenters, cloud computing and voice over IP. It’s the most energy efficient technology to scale up all these services.
Join us for a one-day executive conference explaining why integrated photonics is vital to keep our world communicating and connected in the 21st century. We’re bringing the global experts to Eindhoven, the undisputed innovation champion of light technologies.
