Meeting the Challenges in Spectral Testing of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC)

Photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are a well-known technology in the communications world, driving the efforts for high-speed networks and 5G developments through the rapid evolution of transceivers and components that are much smaller, faster, cheaper and energy-efficient than their bulk-optics predecessors.

With a view to best address spectral test challenges of these up-and-coming components, EXFO has been working closely with the PIC front-end drivers. This webinar delves into the solutions and best practices in overcoming these challenges. We’ll be available to reach out to you as needed during the Q&A session at the end.

Key takeaways:

  • Identifying the challenges in testing PIC technology
  • Future-proofing PIC spectral characterization
  • Testing throughout the PIC ecosystem; from design to mass production of optical components
