JePPIX Pilot Line has launched its design and manufacturing services for InP photonic integrated circuit (PIC) production. The JePPIX Pilot Line offers commercial InP PIC production based on mature Process Design Kits (PDKs), that are embedded in industry-standard design environments.
The JePPIX Pilot Line provides a single point of contact for all the services needed for InP PIC product qualification, including: functional PIC modelling with manufacturing tolerances, design for test (DFT), design for manufacturing, and automated die testing with customizable scripting and test services.
JePPIX brings together the European photonic integrated circuit (PIC) supply chain as a coherent force to advance and promote PIC technology. It promotes and facilitatse an open-access, horizontal and generic foundry model that keeps pace with the market, bringing in new users, enabling specialisation, and facilitating the supply chain agility we need for new sectors.
To accelerate the use of InP PICs, the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme has supported the pilot line through the InPulse project that has received funding under grant agreement No 871345 (www.photonics21.org).
InP PICs offer the benefits if being small in size, low weight, with low power consumption. Moreover, the possibility to integrate lasers, detectors, interferometers, photodetectors, modulators, filters, waveguides and other (electro-)optical technologies all on a single chip has a huge impact on material resources needed, circuit level reproducibility and the overall cost of the system.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
