OIDA Workshop on Integrated Photonics High Volume Packaging
Progress continues on the design and clean room fabrication of integrated photonics, and companies have commercialized products based on integrated photonics—using both the InP and silicon platforms. There is growing awareness that the chip fabrication is less of a barrier to commercialization, and more attention is turning to the cost of the overall package. This cost includes not only the bill of materials, but also the cost of assembly tools and labor. Addressing the cost requires an examination of the entire ecosystem, from the chip design and fabrication to the assembly and surrounding electronics.
