Silicon Photonics: Past, Present and Future

Optoelectronic industry designers have traditionally used discrete optical devices for transceiver designs. The process requires manual integration of discrete free-space optical components such as lasers, modulator, photo detectors, isolators, MUX/DE-MUX, lenses in the form of optical gold box sub-assemblies such as transmit optical sub-assembly (TOSA).

Next generation communication systems are requiring faster receiving, transmitting and handling of data loads. While those data loads are rapidly growing, power availability is not scaling at the same rate. Therefore, next generation and subsequent generation Transmit and Receive (Tx/Rx) modules need to handle more data while accommodating ever increasing power efficiency per bit.
