Silicon photonics has proven to be a steadfast solution due to its ability to provide high-speed, low power, temperature tolerant, and volume manufacturability capabilities. This technology is increasingly finding its way into multiple network applications—from high-performance high-capacity coherent optical submarine/long-haul transport to short reach intra-data center client links. This session will discuss how the industry is transitioning from a technology validation phase to a focus on packaging and automation advancements, further leveraging electronics packaging techniques for optics.
