Luxtera opens industry leading silicon CMOS photonic process to OpSIS community

SPIE Photonics West 2012, CARLSBAD, USA: Luxtera is teaming up with the new foundry service for Optoelectronic Systems Integration in Silicon (OpSIS). Under the agreement, Luxtera’s Silicon CMOS Photonics device library and process is now open to the OpSIS community, which shares the cost of fabricating complex chip-scale systems across many projects. Luxtera is the industry leader in Silicon Photonics and offers the world’s only solution that is in significant volume production.

Silicon Photonics continues to be a driving force that supports growing bandwidth demands of equipment in high performance computing (HPC), next generation datacenters and cloud computing. Providing key benefits in reliability, power consumption and signal integrity, Silicon Photonics is critical to the next generation of system design. In working with OpSIS, various projects can now have direct access to Luxtera’s complete technology platform and proven library of Optical Device Elements that work with a volume 200mm Silicon CMOS process.

In addition, Luxtera supports a standard tool flow based on industry leading EDA tools, supporting electronic-photonic co-design. The Luxtera PDK has been production proven in subsystem and system level opto-electronic transceiver architectures. The company’s and design kit are the result of years of innovation, all covered by over 115 issued and pending patents.
