Electro-Optical Circuit Boards Bridge the PICs Gap

Presentation will begin: Thursday, January 12, 2023 - 1:15 PM EST
Presented by: Nikolaus Flöry, Vario-Optics

Miniaturized electro-optical systems are finding their way into an increasing number of applications. While photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and components are maturing, the integration and packaging remains a major bottleneck for high-volume production. This is particularly true as the complexity of chips advances, the number of optical I/Os grows, and the electrical requirements for PICs get tighter. Hybrid integration methods, such as the use of electro-optical circuit boards (EOCBs), are one solution to bridging this challenge.

Flöry discusses the basic concepts, opportunities, and challenges of electro-optical co-engineering and showcases examples of successful EOCB-based hybrid PIC packaging applications.
