OPTOELECTRONICS & PHOTONICS SOLUTIONS
A photonic integrated circuit (PIC), also known as an integrated optical circuit, is similar to an electronic integrated circuit. However, instead of using only electrical signals to transmit information, these optoelectronic devices use both electrical and optical (light) signals. The use of optics enables more bandwidth and faster connectivity while reducing power costs. Optical components are well established in telecommunications and are technologies that provide connectivity for homes. The growth in data center applications has greatly increased demand for PICs since they enable more efficient system architectures, significantly reduce energy consumption, and improve performance. As such, the use of optoelectronic systems is expected to continue growing and requires cost-effective, reliable manufacturing solutions.
