Paper Abstract

Juniper’s silicon photonics technology employs an entirely new approach to optics manufacturing that leverages design, wafer manufacturing, packaging and test infrastructure and methodologies from the microelectronics ecosystem, resulting in a fabless optical transceiver manufacturing flow cable of scaling, in both cost and performance, with the needs of the networking industry. Juniper’s fully integrated “Opto-ASIC” transceiver leverages densely packaged electronic and photonic die in a single, low-cost package that supports common module form factors as well as on-board and on-package optics applications. The ability to incorporate all optical components, including lasers, within a single, common silicon die is a key enabler of the approach, fundamentally changing and simplifying how an optical transceiver can be assembled and tested. We will review lessons learned and provide a preview of the road ahead.
