About This Webinar
Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrate technology has been the defining foundation of silicon photonic integrated circuits for over 20 years, fostering their commercial deployment in the data center by promoting high-speed optical transceiver products.

Sharing Soitec’s perspective from the strategic crossroads between fabless PIC developers, foundries, and system-level integrators, Sciancalepore provides an in-depth overview of the market and technology trends driving silicon photonics applications today, including their recent expansion from data center interconnects into consumer sensing devices and all-optical computing technologies. His presentation further details the latest technological advancements in SOI substrate technology, including the benchmark of an extensive set of optical devices and circuits on silicon photonics multi-project wafer (MPW) runs, where an extensive set of optical devices and circuits are fabricated, with optical characterization data and device performance supporting the ultimate choice of SOI substrate technology for silicon photonics applications.
