The main PIC Events and News from JePPIX Partners<!–




 JePPIX Newsletter May 2019

 The main PIC Events and News
from JePPIX partners

 


 
PIC Packaging and assembly

 

Along with multi-projects wafer runs (MPW) shuttles for PIC fabrication, JePPIX provides the PIC ecosystem with generic packaging solutions which further increase the accessibility and complements rapid PIC prototyping. These services are available on a short turnover time if chip designs follow a reference layout. This edition of the PICs4All Newsletter highlights how best to package and assemble first prototype photonic chips.
 

 

Photonic Integrated Circuits for Quantum Photonics

 

Quantum Technology (QT) is required for the application of quantum mechanics in a wide variety of emerging fields. The EU Quantum Flagship identifies four application areas, namely Quantum Computing, Quantum Simulation, Quantum Communication, and Quantum Sensing and Metrology. The opportunities of QT are wide-ranging and with a potentially huge impact. Photonic integrated circuits (PICs) offer some very concrete opportunities for QT. Learn more in PICs4All Application notes by Martijn Heck. Learn more about PICs4All.

JePPIX Partners are actively contributing to the Quantum Flagship Projects: CIVIQ (VLC Photonics and Fraunhofer HHI), S2QUIP (VLC Photonics), UNIQORN (TU/e, SMART Photonics, Fraunhofer HHI, VPIphotonics and Cordon Electronics) and others.


 
“Europe’s age of Light!” Europrean photonics roadmap handed over to the European Commission
 

In preparation of the new EU framework programme Horizon Europe the new European photonics roadmap “Europe’s age of light! How photonics will power growth and innovation” was presented and handed over to European Commission by the members of the Photonics21 Executive Board. The official ceremony and publication took place alongside the symposium of the Photonics Public Private Partnership Annual Meeting 2019 in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels. The photonics roadmap outlines the future research and innovation challenges for the next seven years. The electronic version is available for download.

 


The third World Technology Mapping Forum will be hosted by Fraunhofer HHI on June 12-14 in Berlin, Germany
 

The goal of the World Technology Mapping Forum is to update and discuss the Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap – International (IPSR-I), looking ahead to global technology needs in 2030 and beyond. Following successful Fall and Winter meetings in Cambridge USA and Tokyo Japan, the latest draft of this new IPRS roadmap was issued to Working Group Leaders at the Spring meeting in Sunnyvale California in March. More information about the event and its agenda are available on the Official website.
 


PIC Awards 2019: JePPIX Partners are acknowledged for their valuable contribution to the Photonics Ecosystem development
 

PIC International 2019 took place in Brussels in March. As part of the conference, PIC Awards for the outstanding contribution to the Photonic Ecosystem development took places. Congratulations to the winners and JePPIX Partners!
VLC Photonics: Best achievement in PIC development – for Outstanding contribution to creation and support of the ecosystem for fabless PIC development;
Martin Schell, Fraunhofer HHI: PIC Lifetime achievement award – Executive Director of the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, Berlin, Germany;
PHIX Photonics Assembly, spin-off of LioniX International: Best new PIC-enabled product or achievement in optical-fibered modules – Vision in creating a volume production centre for PIC-based modules.


 
A unique one-stop-shop solution for supporting photonics innovation in European companies
 

Businesses and innovators wanting to innovate with photonics, but without the expertise or technologies can benefit from ACTPHAST. Two new programs: ACTPHAST 4.0 and ACTPHAST 4 Researchers have now both launched with the mission to take you from concept to prototype with the ambition to be faster, at lower cost and with greater impact. Register your interest now at www.actphast.eu or discuss with JePPIX at coordinator@jeppix.eu.
 


 

 

Nazca is the popular and advanced open source layout tool for designers by designers. Version 0.5 is now available for download for free at Nazca-Design.org. Nazca supports the JePPIX foundries with compatible process design kits. Nazca is Python based, and easy to integrate with your scientific and lab work, or the perfect excuse to start learning Python. The open character of Nazca enables you to create photonics designs anytime and with anyone. No more fights with your colleagues for licenses! Check out the new features and visit the download page.
 

 
 

Layout versus Schematic is a standard step in IC design that is now also available for photonics. It allows a designer to check whether the schematic created with Optsim Circuit is functionally equivalent to the generated layout. Traditional LVS is very hard or even impossible to do on photonic integrated circuits: inferring parameters of an AWG or lattice filter is, to all intents and purposes, impossible. Therefore, OptoDesigner can, in a post-processing step on the mask file, add extra marker layers to the GDSII file that allows IC Validator, Synopsys’ physical verification tool, to compare this list of connected components to a schematic that is produced by Optsim Circuit. Discover more on Synopsys website
 

PhotonDelta in partnership with JePPIX offers PIC Innovation vouchers for commercial organisations that are exploring InP technology for their businesses. 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.
