Singapore’s CompoundTek exhibiting silicon photonics foundry solutions at OFC

Singapore-based CompoundTek Pte Ltd is highlighting its silicon photonics (SiPh) foundry services in booth #6105 at the Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2019) in San Diego, CA, USA (3-7 March).

Mixing optics, complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology and advanced packaging, silicon photonics technology benefits from silicon-based wafer manufacturing scalability to reduce costs, offering advantages such as higher integration, more functionalities embedded with lower power consumption and better reliability compared with legacy optics.

“CompoundTek’s mission is to make SiPh chips as widely available as silicon CMOS chips by driving the cost down through high-volume manufacturing, ensuring high yield, and bringing innovative fabrication solutions,” says co-founder & CEO Raj Kumar. “Our exhibit at OFC 2019, while leveraging Singapore’s standing as a world-class semiconductor hub, will seek to strengthen its growing influence in high-value-added next-generation niche technologies which, in turn, supports Singapore’s Smart Nation 2020 agenda.”

Targeting cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), autonomous vehicles (AVs), Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, CompoundTek’s SiPh solutions are designed in tandem with emerging trends such as rapid urbanization, smart city initiatives, energy conservation and ageing populations. CompoundTek says that demand for next-generation semiconductor applications will be led by new system requirements, ultra-low-power devices, the increasing need for miniaturization (wearables) and cost-effective optical enabled chips that can transport data at much higher speeds and bandwidths.

CompoundTek’s SiPh fabrication solutions suited to some of these industries will be featured at OFC. In 2018 the firm debuted capabilities designed for fast turnaround time, addressing the issues of both capacity and process technology gaps in the industry. CompoundTek says that its partners now include multi-billion-dollar commercial entities, leading research institutes, advisors and industry pioneers.
