Optoelectronic packaging is one of the current main challenges for optoelectronic device and optoelectronic integration. Among others, it comprises optical underfill compound, optical fiber array, micro lens, silicon carrier and substrate effects on the thermal, optical and reliability performance of optoelectronic packaging. To overcome these challenges, a wide range of analysis and expertise for integrated optoelectronics, thermal and power management should be done.

Traditionally, each optoelectronic technology has followed their own packaging roadmaps, technologies, design rules and standards (eg. PIC (Photonic IC), VCSELs, MEMS based sensors, LEDs, etc.). This workshop will explore common challenges between different photonic technologies as well as bring together the entire value chain in order to identify the current bottlenecks and the ways to circumvent them.

Network with top technology experts from key organizations such as  FiconTEC, Huawei, IBM, Kaiam, Linkra, LioniX, Microtest, MIRPHAB, Optocap, Oxsensis, PhoeniX Software, Photon Delta, Technobis,Tegema,Tyndall Institute, VTT and YoleDeveloppement

Why attend?
  • Listen to and engage with leading industrial practitioners
  • Update yourself on the latest market trends
  • Network with the entire supply chain including end-users, integrators and materials & equipment suppliers
  • Gain insight into assembly process developments from a range of industrial sectors
  • Visit the state of the art research facilities at Heriot Watt University

The programme includes the following topics and will take place over the course Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 November:
