Coherent recognises Tower Semiconductor with Outstanding Innovation and Technology Supplier Award


Coherent uses Tower’s silicon photonics products in its optical transceivers, and says the company has “demonstrated an innovative, customer-centric approach”

Tower Semiconductor has announced that Coherent has recognised it as an Outstanding Innovation and Technology Supplier for its silicon photonics based optical transceiver products. The company says that this prestigious award acknowledges its unwavering long-term commitment to providing the most advanced technology solutions, enabling the development of Coherent’s market-leading multiple data rate nodes for high-speed optical transceivers based on Tower’s PH18 silicon photonics process technology. According to the Yole Group, the silicon photonics market is expected to grow at 44 percent CAGR from 2022 to 2028, supporting growth of AI, datacentre, and network infrastructure.

“We are pleased to work with Tower to integrate silicon photonics into our optical transceivers for AI, datacom, and telecom markets,” said Yajun Wang, senior vice president of Networking Technology at Coherent. “Over the years, Tower has demonstrated an innovative, customer-centric approach, which prompted us to select them for our ‘Outstanding Innovation and Technology Supplier’ Award. Combined with our world-class vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) and InP-based lasers such as EMLs, silicon photonics-based components will enable us to provide a full range of communications solutions to our customers.”

Tower says its high-volume silicon photonics technology offers area-optimised solutions with integrated optical detectors, waveguides, and modulators on a single die, enabling a wide range of applications replacing the assembly of discrete components in optical modules.

“We are greatly honoured to receive this recognition from Coherent, an industry leader and strong partner,” said Marco Racanelli, Tower Semiconductor president. “Together, we look forward to enabling best-in-class optical transceiver products today and for several generations to come.”
