Partnership for Silicon Photonics Formed
A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics (IME) in Singapore, and the University of Washington in Seattle, will join forces to provide shared silicon photonics processes as part of the Optoelectronics Systems Integration in Silicon program (OpSIS). The collaboration is expected to help the R&D community reduce the fabrication cost of silicon photonics integrated circuits. Hosted in University of Washington’s Institute for Photonic Integration, OpSIS is a new foundry service to facilitate R&D in silicon photonics technology. Under this partnership, IME will provide its in-house silicon photonics platform technology, together with its fabrication and integration expertise, in multigigahertz photonic devices.
