Commercial foundry services and supply chain enablement play a critical role in the ecosystem, particularly to realize the scale and low-cost promise of silicon photonics (SiPho).  In this panel, we will invite SiPho-related foundries to discuss their short- and long-term commercial offering and roadmap to advance SiPho technology for next-gen applications in datacom/telecom (800G and beyond, 5G, CPO), optical compute, optical sensing (LiDAR, spectroscopy), and more. Topics covered will include state-of-the-art photonics building blocks, III-V light source implementation, E-O integration/packaging, fiber attachment solutions, design enablement and reliability & qualification testing. 


To be determined.
