SiFotonics showcases silicon photonics products

At the Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2019) in San Diego, CA, USA (3-7 March), SiFotonics Technologies Co Ltd of Woburn, MA, USA, which provides germanium-on-silicon (Ge-on-Si) devices and silicon photonics integrated circuits (using its R&D centers in Beijing and Shanghai and its new manufacturing facility in Nanjing, China), showcased its portfolio of the following silicon photonics products:

  • industrial-temperature, high-sensitivity 25Gbps avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver module for extended-reach 5G front-haul applications (now generally available and shipping in high volume);
  • industrial-temperature, high-sensitivity 50Gbps PAM4 APD receiver module for long-reach 5G mid-haul optical networking applications (now available for sampling);
  • commercial and industrial-temperature, high-sensitivity 100Gbps PAM4 APD receiver module for most economical data-center and 5G interconnect applications (now available for sampling);
  • 4x25G PIN photodiode array for high-volume 100G data-center interconnect applications (now shipping in high volume);
  • 4x25G APD receiver module for extended-reach 100G applications. This product is available for sampling;
  • 32Gbaud micro integrated coherent receiver module for 100G and 200G metro and data-center interconnect (DCI) applications (available for sampling);
  • 64GBaud integrated coherent receiver photonics integrated circuit chip for 400G metro and DCI applications (available for sampling).

“With the rapid increase of optical networking bandwidth required for large data centers and 5G wireless optical transport, advanced high-sensitivity receiver technologies are in high demand to address the challenge of physical limitation of reduced link budget with increase speed,” says chief operating officer Dr Rang-Chen Yu. “SiFotonics unique capability of advanced germanium-on-silicon detection technology with complex photonics integrated circuits offers compelling solutions to global tier-1 customers,” he adds.

“Our products are based on more than 10 years of development with industry-leading silicon photonics platforms with a unique combination of commercial CMOS foundry and proprietary controlled germanium-on-silicon processes and fabrication tools that enable rapid innovation with high efficiency,” says founder & CEO Dr Dong Pan.

At OFC, Pan co-chaired a panel on ‘PIC Foundry Commercial Access: Prospects and Challenges’. He also presided at a technical session ‘Detectors’.
