Since the first laser diodes and single-mode optical fibers of the early 1990s, the high cost and labor-intensiveness of testing and assembling photonic components have impacted production economics and impeded scaling. With the advent of Silicon Photonics and today’s complex, multi-channel devices, and anticipating adoption of photonics into major new applications fields outside the data center, the newest approaches to improving manufacturing efficiency and yield are seeing high demand.Continue reading “Addressing the high cost of photonic test and assembly through technology and partnerships”
A JakajimaTV interview with Gerrit Muller. This interview gives a glimpse of his vision on System Architecture / System Engineering.
Photonics is a specific set of technologies with many real world applications. Users operate these applications using various systems that in turn deploy a wide variety of technologies.Continue reading “System Architecture and Photonics!”
The recently launched Juncker Investment Package by the European Commission means €315 billion over the next three years will be set aside to establish strategic innovation hubs to boost Europe’s future growth. The re-industrialization of the European economy has become a major priority. There’s now a clear focus of funds on technologies that generate business.
