Heterogeneous Integration opens new capabilities for technologies, use cases, and market participants. Integrating devices developed separately and often on different substrates (as, for example, III-V semiconductors and Silicon Photonics) into a single composite device enables miniaturization, simplifies interconnection, saves materials, and reduces energy consumption. It fosters the creation of new optical products that serve new applications with more demanding performance requirements. In this session, we explore how well (and when) the various approaches to heterogeneous integration will meet these challenging needs., and the status and challenges for the service providers (e.g., type of integration platforms, process/tools maturity, and how to handle non-traditional Si materials).
