First wafer scale bonding of InP photonic and BiCMOS electronic circuitry

The European project WIPE* has made a major step forward towards the hybrid integration of electronics and photonics. An InP-wafer from project partner Fraunhofer HHI, containing photonic circuits for transmitters and receivers, was successfully bonded and interconnected to a matching electronic circuitry wafer fabricated using the standard BiCMOS fabrication process.

The pictures below show the InP membrane with open windows to access and interconnect the photonic (gold) and the electronic (aluminium) contact pads. These were designed by partners IMEC and TU/e for operation at 50 Gb/s PAM4 modulation.

The technology for bonding and interconnecting was developed at the TU/e. The next steps will be dicing modules out of this wafer and packaging them, which will be done by partner IBM. The project hopes to report results from characterization and system testing, a work package that partner EFFECT Photonics is leading.

You can learn more about the project on the WIPE-blog, maintained by partner SMART Photonics and found on LinkedIn, and on their website and on the JePPIX website.

*This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 688572 (Wafer scale Integration of Photonics and Electronics, WIPE).

Pilot Lines at the next AIM Roadmap Meeting

At the Fall 2019 Roadmap Conference titled “Vision, Barriers and Solutions for Photonic Technology; Release Preview of Integrated Photonics Systems Roadmap – International 2020” on October 10-11 in Cambridge, MA, Kevin Williams, head of the Photonic Integration research group at TU/e, will share insights on European activities in PIC technology in an Engineering keynote. During his keynote, Kevin will talk about the manufacturing pilot lines for indium phosphide PICs: InPulse and OIP4NWE.
Twan Korthorst, Director at Synopsys Photonic Solutions, will talk about the “Past, Current and Future of PIC Design for Manufacturing. The importance of automation, design re-use and verification for integrated photonics product development.” in a Vision Keynote.

Both Kevin and Twan will be speaking in session 7. The full programme and more information about the Roadmap Meeting can be found here.

JePPIX Investor Sessions

Together with EPIC, the JePPIX InPulse pilot line brings you Investor Sessions. These sessions cover the basics of Enterpreneurship in Photonics with a particular emphasis on the investor’s side: how to prepare for a pitch, validate a business to convince investors, and raise adequate funding to reach each milestone.

Join Steve Frisken, CEO at Cylite, and Andreas Umbach, CEO at AUCCEPT Consulting in these sessions and learn from their vast years of experience. Click the buttons to watch the videos.
