20th OIDA Annual Forum

Upcoming Events

OIDA Workshop on State of the Art Integrated Photonics
This workshop continues a series of OIDA workshops that reviews the state of the art in photonic integration. Key questions to be addressed related to the limits--and opportunities--of commercializing integrated photonics:
03 11月 - 03 11月 2015
Location: OSA Office, Washington, DC, USA

Plug and Play IoT EXPO - Where Innovation Meets Investment
LOOKING FOR FUNDING? On Thursday, 10 December from 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm, 10 start-ups will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from major corporations and venture capital companies who are looking for funding opportunities. The event will take place at Plug and Play headquarters in Silicon Valley, CA.
10 12月 - 10 12月 2015
Location: Sunnyvale, CA, USA

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.
20 3月 - 20 3月 2016
Location: Anaheim, CA, USA

2016 OSA Executive Forum
