Photonics in Silicon R&D Toward Tb/s
By Ed Korczynski, Sr. Technical Editor, Semiconductor Manufacturing & Design
The client:server computing paradigm colloquially referred to as the “Cloud” results in a need for extremely efficient Cloud server hardware, and from first principles the world can save a lot of energy resources if servers run on photonics instead of electronics. Though the potential for cost-savings is well known, the challenge of developing cost-effective integrated photonics solutions remains. Today, discrete compound-semiconductor chips function as transmitters, multiplexers (MUX), and receivers of photons, while many global organizations pursue the vision of lower-cost integrated silicon (Si) photonics circuits. read more…

Coventor will offer expertise and tools to support MIT’s role in AIM Photonics
CARY, NC– November 15, 2016 – Coventor, a leading supplier of semiconductor process development tools, today announced that it will collaborate with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (“MIT”) on silicon photonics process modeling. MIT is a key player in the AIM Photonics program, a federally funded, public-private partnership established to advance domestic capabilities in integrated photonic technology and strengthen high-tech U.S.-based manufacturing. Coventor will provide its SEMulator3D® process modeling platform to model the effect of process variation in the development of photonic integrated components. Integration of photonics with conventional CMOS technology is needed for next-generation scientific, industrial and consumer applications ranging from data communications to metrology to aerospace applications. read more…
