LIGENTEC and X-FAB collaboration creates Europe’s largest capacity foundry service for integrated photonic circuits
Tessenderlo, Belgium and Lausanne, Switzerland – September 14, 2021
LIGENTEC, pioneer in high-performance, low-loss, silicon nitride photonic solutions, and specialty semiconductor producer X-FAB Silicon Foundries have announced a strategic partnership resulting in the large-scale supply of integrated photonic devices.
Photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are set to repeat the success story of electronic integrated circuits (ICs). Working with light instead of electrons, PICs will play a key role in tomorrow’s infrastructure for communication, biosensing and transportation.
“Silicon nitride offers superior performance to manage the light in the chip circuitry, with unprecedented low propagation losses and high-power handling,” … Read More → "LIGENTEC and X-FAB collaboration creates Europe’s largest capacity foundry service for integrated photonic circuits"
