Imec Academy Offers PIC Training In May


Three day course covers different materials platforms, packaging and design flow.

Imec will host Europractice photonic integrated circuit (PIC) training - a three day course running 8-10 May 2017, which aims to provide attendees with a jump-start on PIC technology from a fabless manufacturing perspective. Organizations listed on the programme include imec (Belgium), the STFC (UK), SMART Photonics (The Netherlands), Tyndall National Institute (Ireland), Lumerical Solutions (Canada), Luceda Photonics (Belgium), Bright Photonics (The Netherlands) and Ghent University / ePIXfab (Belgium).

Seminars and hands on training


The first part, running for a full day, is seminar-based and focuses on the basics of PICs and the value chain of their fabless and MPW fabrication and packaging within different material platforms. Then, on day two and three, the course focuses on design flow through intensive hands-on training on some of the leading PDA tools and learn the use of PDKs. This part, as a supplement to the first part, is intended for those who are interested in learning the practical implementation of PDA.

The organizers describe the training as suitable for academic and industrial participants alike, and mention that a background in photonics is not necessary.
