Photonic Integrated Circuits

Silicon Photonics is CMOS compatible, while laser source integration is still a technical challenge. InP-based devices are unmatched regarding the very versatile range of building blocks, including commercial grade lasers, but it lacks the leverage of existing CMOS infrastructure. EPIC engages the entire manufacturing value chain: software, design, manufacturing, test, and packaging. EPIC takes into account manufacturing for low-, mid-, and high-volume manufacturing.
