The shift from electrons to photons for communications within the data center delivers high bandwidth while dramatically reducing operating cost and environmental impact, and silicon photonics (SiPh) has become the new standard for high performance computing implementations. SiPh manufacturers are reaping the benefits of higher test throughput and lower wasted packaging costs, by testing devices directly on the wafer, prior to dicing and packaging.

FormFactor and Physik Instrumente (PI) understand the critical importance of refining and perfecting SiPh probe technology, as SiPh applications expand beyond the data center into electronics, autonomous vehicles and manufacturing, life sciences, and more. The costs associated with testing millions of devices will become a critical factor in realizing the full economic potential of SiPh.

To learn more, check out the podcast – “Pushing Boundaries – Together: Pioneering the Future of Electronics.” PI’s David Rego and Scott Jordan explore the future of silicon photonics and wafer probing with Dan Rishavy from FormFactor. They discuss a new era of electronics, the obstacles they overcame, and how their partnership will enable one of the most exciting industries to flourish in a way that was formerly impossible.
