Moving Silicon Photonics Out of the Lab and Into the Fab
The semiconductor industry is at the gateway of a technology shift in the form of silicon photonics (SiPh), which holds the potential for spectacular gains in speed, power efficiency and density. The first wave of the SiPh revolution stands poised to roll over data centers around the world with optical interconnects that breach the barriers set by copper wire. End user benefits might include an HD movie or 100 hours of music downloaded in a single second. Bandwidths of a terabit per second now come within practical reach. FormFactor is already playing a significant role in the implementation of silicon photonics technology. This major inflection point provides a good illustration of how we participate in solving the challenges of wafer test long before a new technology goes into mass production.
