Imec Announces Performance Improvements of its Wafer-Scale Integrated Silicon Photonics Platform

World-leading nanoelectronics research center Imec presents at OFC 2016, the international event for both the science and business of optical communications held March 20-24, performance improvements of various key building blocks of its wafer-scale integrated silicon photonics platform (iSiPP). The new results expand imec’s iSiPP device portfolio to support 50Gb/s non-return-to-zero (NRZ) lane rates, and are an important milestone for the realization of high data rate silicon integrated optical interconnects targeting high density, high bandwidth, low power telecom and datacom transceivers, as well as for low cost large volume applications such as sensors or LiDAR.
