Main PIC Events and News from JePPIX<!–




 JePPIX Newsletter July 2019

 The main PIC Events and News
from JePPIX partners

 


 

Registration for JePPIX PIC Design Course 2019 is open.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Eindhoven, October 28 – November 8! 

 

The JePPIX PIC Design Course is a deep-dive technology training scheduled for two weeks starting from Monday 28th October 2018. The registration is now open. The course covers the theory and practice of integrated photonic component and circuit design using the powerful active and passive JePPIX building blocks. Hands on training with lab tools and design tools are complemented with clean room tours to develop insights into design rules. Layout and simulation methods are developed with JePPIX CAD tool developers and professional designers. This course is particularly suitable to engineers who wish to create their first MPW chips. 
To register, fill in the Application Form on JePPIX website. The Early Bird registration fee is available until September 30.

 


PICS4All Application Note for Optical Coherence Tomography

Courtesy of Bright Photonics BV.PICS4All extends its dories of application notes: as a non-invasive inspection technique, optical coherence tomography (OCT) is gaining continuous traction both in research and industry. Since the first commercialization of OCT systems in 1992, the market grew at an impressive 45% compound annual growth until today. According to octnews.org, the ophthalmic OCT market alone reached a volume of over $ 300M in 2012, but OCT is also applied in a variety of other medical disciplines, as well as biology and biophysics. All those applications demand OCT systems to scale in resolution, speed and size, therefore they can benefit greatly from photonic integration. One of the latest Application Notes by PICs4All is dedicated to the opportunities for PICs in OCT systems.
Even more applications are empowered by PICs: 
Fiber Bragg Grating based Sensing
On-Chip Biological Sensing
Quantum Communications
Quantum Random Number Generation

Photonics in gravitational wave detection
 

JePPIX Partner Bright Photonics started developing with the institutes NIKHEF (National Institute for Subatomic Physics) and SRON (Netherlands Institute for Space Research), the eyes for LISA, the space-based gravitational wave observatory to be launched in 2034. The eyes consist of surface-illuminated large-area photo-detectors in the InGaAs on InP material system. JePPIX Partner SMART Photonics will provide device processing of the designs. Read the Press Release and find more information and links on Bright Photonics website.

The third World Technology Mapping Forum took place in Berlin, Germany
 

The goal of WTMF-2019 in Berlin was to update and discuss the first draft of the Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap – International (IPSR-I). This looks ahead to global technology needs in 2040 and beyond. Following successful Fall and Winter input meetings in Cambridge USA and Tokyo Japan, the final draft of this new international IPSR roadmap was issued to WTMF-2019 delegates. Many of JePPIX Partners actively contributed to the document. Over three days, the organisers PhotonDelta and AIM Photonics Academy, brought together the top 100 key players in photonic integrated circuits. It is important to ensure the photonics industry scales and that deployment of these enabling technologies happens faster, greener and at lower cost. Discussions involve all the main platforms including Silicon Photonics, Indium Phosphide and Silicon Nitride as well as the tools and technologies needed to ramp up production, packaging, assembly and testing of these next generation chips. Results and Conclusions, Pre-forum Briefing Videos and the Keynotes are available on WTMF website.
 


Synopsys introduces a new series of webinars: From an aware design value chain PIC idea to PIC application-oriented designs
 

Synopsys Photonics Solutions is launching a new series of webinars to show designers the complete value chain of PIC Design, Synopsys PIC Design Suite latest updates and offer, and interactive examples tailored as “do it yourself” sessions. The webinars focus on training designers on how to use the tools (interface, GUI, etc.), and evolves to application-oriented demonstrations on the data com and sensing arenas.

 
          31st July PIC Design Suite from Idea to Fabrication
   12nd – 16th August Simulation Methodology for LiDAR on Chip
   26th – 30th August Design and optimization of Photonic components
  9th – 13rd September  Design and Layout of a 400G polarization-multiplexed coherent transmitter and receiver Photonic Integrated Circuit   
 

At the end of the webinars you will have use the complete design value chain with Synopsys PIC Design Suite on first hand, as well as to be able to project your PIC idea to a design intent and landing it into a mask layout for fabrication in the different technology platforms (SiPh, InP, SiN, etc.) available at Synopsys. Want to know more and secure your place? Contact Synopsys Team at pic_support@synopsys.com.


 
JePPIX supports the ACTPHAST programs

 

JePPIX partners are actively engaged in the ACTPHAST programs which provide additional support for photonic innovators, from companies through to doctoral researchers across a broad range of application domains.
ACTPHAST 4.0: Accelerating photonics innovation for SME’s: a one stop-shop-incubator supporting photonics innovation by European companies. JePPIX foundries SMART Photonics, Fraunhofer HHI and LioniX International are all able to offer their silicon nitride and indium phosphide platform technologies. Additionally technology comparisons as well as design, test and or packaging services can also be included in expert-led, tailor-made projects. JePPIX partners include a number of accredited technology scouts, and JePPIX can also connect potential users to the wider range of photonics technologies and associated expertise offered in the ACTPHAST portfolio.
ACTPHAST 4 Researchers has just been launched to target the transition from concept to first prototype. The acronym stands for accelerating photonics deployment via one stop shop advanced technology access for researchers enables researchers in Europe to demonstrate their conceptual breakthroughs. Innovation projects, internships, trainings and business coaching are offered to facilitate innovation breakthoughs and identify pathways to scaling and deployment. 
Direct registration is possible here, and you can also register with JePPIX to be kept up to date on possibilities. 

 


JePPIX is attending ECOC2019 in Dublin, 23-25 September and looking forward to meeting you! 
JePPIX is enabling the transition from the prototypes to manufacturing with our indium-phosphide Pilot Line for up-scaled, low-barrier, self sustained PIC ecosystem. The development programs are available to ensure this transition and help the early adopters of PIC technology to ramp up. Come and visit our Pilot Line booth #404 that JePPIX shares with the Packaging Pilot Line PIXAPP and the Passion project which focuses on VCSEL and silicon technologies.
The detailed program on JePPIX activities at ECOC will be available in our September Newsletter.
 

PhotonDelta in partnership with JePPIX offers PIC Innovation vouchers for commercial organisations that are exploring InP technology for their businesses. The program ends in 2019.
Contact us for terms and conditions. Grants worth up to € 4,250.00 would reduce the fabrication costs in MPW runs by SMART Photonics Foundry. 
 

Apply for one of the next MPW runs from Fraunhofer HHI, SMART Photonics or LioniX International. The updated production schedule is available on JePPIX website. 
 
One additional MPW run from SMART Photonics has been announced: the submission deadline is September 01, 2019.
