AIM Photonics and the Next PIC Generation

Tuesday, 08 March 11:30 – 12:30
Theater II

Session Description:

The session will be divided amongst our three speakers and will provide insight into our technology offerings across the product development cycle, from design through assembly and test. The session topics are:  AP-SUNY PDK and component design for high performance photonic integrated circuits; AIM Photonics MPW and test, assembly, and packaging options; and AIM Photonics PIC technology and perspective on the future of silicon photonics and electronics.
