Developing and marketing a product based on a photonic integrated circuit is still a challenging task. While the technology has greatly matured in the last decade, allowing to easily prototype PICs using different software tools, material platforms, foundry processes, multi-project wafers, etc. there are still many challenges when moving these prototypes into a commercial product. This presentation will discuss topics like variations and optimizations towards a design freeze, validated design re-use, standardization and automation on die and wafer level opto-electronic testing, and assembly qualification.
Iñligo Artundo obtained the M.Sc. in Telecom Engineering at the Universidad Publica de Navarra (Pamplona, Spain) in 2005, and received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics and Photonics at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Brussels, Belgium) in 2009. He has been involved in several national and European research projects and networks of excellence focused on optical telecom and interconnects, micro-optics and photonic integration. He has worked as a reviewer for several scientific journals, national and international funding agencies. He holds specializations in Business Financing, Commercial Management and Research, and Strategic Marketing. He is a member of IEEE, SPIE.
