Presentation will begin: Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - 4:10 PM EST
Presented by: Iñigo Artundo, VLC Photonics
Test methods for photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are rapidly evolving specific probing solutions and measurement instrumentation frameworks to keep pace with the advancements in these devices. But there are speed bumps in the road ahead, such as the need for automation in die-level testing and for edge-coupling in wafer-level testing. The differences between the current and upcoming material platforms also present new test challenges, as well as the need to achieve complex measurements for component/circuit characterization. Further down the road, growing demand will accelerate testing to allow volume ramp up in emerging application markets. Artundo surveys these test and measurement challenges and discusses emerging solutions.
