Rapid progress in silicon photonics standards via @eetimes #semiconductor #tech

In this blog, I'd like to update the industry on some exciting progress in the area of silicon photonics (SP), particularly the enabling data infrastructure to support co-design of electronics and micro-photonics devices in the design tool flow. If this sounds like some distant research topic that will never see the light of day (pun intended), then perhaps now is a good time to get caught up. Today, I'll focus on industry collaboration defining photonics extensions to the OpenAccess standard right now in Si2's SP TAB. Photonics is not new, but reliably miniaturizing the features and implementing them in silicon (or other materials) is still an emerging field. There have been major advances in creating the device features, usually in fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI), as well as in the package and interconnect technology, but the real value is being able to desi...
