“Our mission is for optical fabs to be leading and creating the world’s best technology in terms of reliability, validation, and trust. This allows for the creation of building blocks for Silicon Photonics ICs that are put together in an assured way using foundry Process Development Kit to accelerate production.”
With billions of dollars of funding being invested in new semiconductor fabs, the time has come for the industry to adopt best practices for integrating advanced photonics.
Jeffrey Maki, Distinguished Engineer at Juniper Networks and a member of the board at the Advanced Photonics Coalition (formerly the Consortium for On-board Optics), talks about the need for collaboration to ensure a more open and secure supply chain.
The newly-launched Advanced Photonics Coalition has just published its mission charter and is inviting collaboration from design firms and equipment OEMs through manufacturing and packaging.
